The nonprofit that helps maintain Huntington Beach's seaside haven for dogs has put out an urgent call for donations, saying the group may fall into bankruptcy in two to three months unless enough funds come in.
The Preservation Society of Huntington Dog Beach, which has overseen the area off Pacific Coast Highway between Seapoint and 21st streets since 1997, posted a notice on its website Sunday asking for added support. TheLocalHB.com an events website, also printed a longer version of the notice in an email newsletter.
Since then, several people have come forward with donations, according to President T.J. Daly.
"I would say we've easily gotten enough for another month in the last four days," he said.
The notice attributed the nonprofit's monetary woes to "a severe decrease in donations over the summer." Daly declined to give exact numbers for how much the preservation society needed, but said the group's finances, at the time the message went out, would only be enough to last about two months.
