Jenna Montroy is an 12 year old girl who was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma cancer and went through chemotherapy and radiation treatment in 2006 until May 2007. Jenna applied for a wish through the Make A Wish Foundation in February of 2007. Jenna’s wish was not for herself, but for the Beverly Animal Shelter to be made over by ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Unfortunately the shelter was not chosen for the show.
The Capital Campaign Kick Off for Jenna’s Wish was held on September 13th 2008 at the shelter.
The goal was to raise $40,000 to construct “Jenna’s Room”. A facility which will help wayward animals. It will provide washing facilities and even a treatment room for animals!
THE BUILDING IS COMPLETE AND THE GRAND OPENING WAS HELD APRIL 3, 2010. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL THOSE WHO SUPPORTED, AND DONATED TO THIS PROJECT.
