Dominion Energy donates van to the Louisa Humane Society

LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Volunteers from the Louisa Humane Society will be using a newly renovated van to take care of their foster animals, thanks to a donation from Dominion Energy.

The keys to the van were presented to Wendy Callahan, president of the Louisa Humane Society, Friday afternoon.

She said the donation will be useful to help their foster pets.

"We're going to be using it for transporting to veterinary care, spay and neuters," she said. "Sometimes we transport out of the area, so it's going to make it a lot more convenient to do it that way."

Callahan said the organization has been struggling because of the limited space it has to transport dogs.

However, she hopes the new addition can improve matters.

"Probably just help more animals and really be able to help more animals and help them get moved from one place to the next," Callahan said.

Cindy Kuster, a volunteer with the Louisa Humane Society and an employee with Dominion Energy, is happy that Dominion Energy stepped in to help the Louisa Humane Society.

She hopes this will be another step toward making the fostering process easier.

"I'm proud that we are able to do this," said Kuster. "I just know how much it means to our group to have this van and to have a reliable van that doesn't break down is just awesome."
