Rescue Robin Fundraiser for White River Humane Society set to begin Saturday, October 1st

BEDFORD – The Rescue Robin fundraiser for the White River Humane Society is coming back stronger than ever on Saturday, October 1, 2022, in the Rural King parking lot.

Robin Compton

Robin Compton, of Springville, and his six-pack of huskies will be locked in a cage and will remain locked in the cage until he reaches the goal of $30,000 or until he has been there for 30 days.

Compton has done this event each year since first starting the event in 2014. Last year, his goal was $20,000 or 20 days in the cage, but he is aiming higher to benefit the White River Humane Society.

The fundraiser is important and will help the staff at the White River Humane Society provide care and medical needs to the unwanted animals of Lawrence County.

If you don’t plan to visit Compton at Rural King, donations can still be made by visiting the White River Humane Society on Facebook or visiting their website at
