The Dime Bank Donates to Local Animal Shelter

Members News

The Dime Bank recently pledged $10,000.00 to the Olga and Dorothea Dessin Animal Society (Dessin), a non-profit private organization that facilitates the placement of countless animals into caring homes each year.

Dessin’s fundraising efforts and facility maintenance were hindered by COVID. The Dime Bank funds will assist with crucial renovations, such as upgrading the septic system, HVAC, electrical systems, and restoring the kennels.

The Dime Bank Chief Operating Officer Lisa Cavage stated, “Being a community bank, The Dime Bank understands the significance of Dessin Animal Shelter’s unwavering dedication to providing animal rescue, medical care, animal housing, and adoption services. We extend our gratitude to Dessin’s staff and volunteers for their hard work, and we hope that our pledge will aid in upgrading their facilities.” If you would like to assist Dessin with a donation, would like to volunteer, or adopt a pet, visit
