The 35th Annual Regina Humane Society Telethon set to air on March 19 on AccessNow TV

Regina, SK – The year’s most anticipated animal event, the Regina Humane Society Telethon, presented by Access Communications Co-operative, will air Sunday, March 19th, 2023. This evening of love, stories of victory and adorable pets looking for a new family to call their own will warm the heart of any animal lover.

The Regina Humane Society (RHS) Telethon is a three-hour show featuring behind-the-scenes looks at RHS programs and services and the life-changing stories of animals who have benefited from them. Visits from adopted pets and their new families will show how “happily-ever afters” happen every day, thanks to the community’s support. Pets still waiting for adoption star in the show along with celebrity hosts, including country performer Chris Henderson and perennial favourite Rory Allen, as well as local media personalities.

“The Telethon offers a first-hand look at how our community has helped so many animals in the past year,” says Bill Thorn, Director of Marketing and Public Relations at the RHS. “None of the work of the Society would be possible without the support of caring individuals and organizations through events such as the telethon.”

Your support of the Telethon will allow the RHS to continue to save the lives of thousands of homeless, abused and neglected animals and give them a second chance at a happy, healthy life. One-time or monthly donations in any amount make a huge difference in the lives of animals in need. To help the animals even more, the RHS has brought back its 50/50 draw for 2023, which will see not only the animals win but someone will also win up to $15,000 in cash!

Hosted at AccessNow TV studios, the Telethon is a major fundraising initiative for the Society. “We look forward to presenting the Telethon each year. The team at RHS is passionate, and it is a privilege to not only work with them but also to leverage our expertise, our studio, and our AccessNow platform to make a difference in the community,” said Tracey Mucha, Senior Manager of Community Engagement for Access Communications.

The Regina Humane Society 35th Annual Telethon airs 6 p.m. - 9 p.m., Sunday, March 19, 2023, on AccessNow TV (check local listings for channel number) and live-streamed at The Telethon will be replayed the following day, Monday, March 20 at 6 p.m.
