Over the last couple of days, the price of Dogecoin has skyrocketed, pushed in part by mentions from prominent people like Elon Musk, who has consistently tweeted about the digital currency. The cryptocurrency has also played a critical role in raising money for various charities around the world.
Speaking to the press, Kukes added that the donation couldn’t have come at a better time for the organization, since they had recently taken in 42 dogs – 24 adults and 18 puppies – that were suspected to be part of a dog fighting ring.
The dogs were rescued from a property on Reva Street in Daytona Beach, where they were found living in deplorable conditions. All the rescued dogs were pit bulls, a breed that is commonly used in the banned sport of dog fighting, and many of the dogs had injuries that were likely to have been sustained from dogfighting.
While some of the rescued dogs have already been adopted, thanks to other organizations stepping in, Kuke added that the organization is always in need of more space to house more pets, and therefore, the donation would go a long way in helping them care for more dogs.
Despite the adoption fees having been paid for by the anonymous donor, the Halifax Humane Society maintained that people interested in adopting the dogs would still have to be vetted.
