The Coulee Region Humane Society reached the maximum monetary donation for its Valentine’s Day kissing booth fundraiser.

More than 100 people participated in the event, which raised the maximum $250 by teaming up with Petfinder.com.

Community members could take pictures with an adoptable pet and give them a smooch. For every kiss, Petfinder.com donated $10 to the humane society. For every adoption, Petfinder donated $50. The maximum dollar amount was $250.

Coulee Region Humane Society Development and Marketing Coordinator Liz Meil says they're excited about the turnout and will release how animals were adopted as a result of the event on Friday afternoon.
