Just like computer users are happy to have cache—data storage or memory space—Animal Welfare Society is glad SIS Bank has “Cache”—our new dog blogger who publishes articles right here on our blog. We made a donation of $500 to the Kennebunk nonprofit on behalf of the character’s new name!
As you may recall, we held a fan contest to name our mascot Husky, whose technology-based blogs are ghostwritten by humans. After several dozen names were initially submitted, the field was narrowed down to six names with the winner, Cache, chosen by public voting on our website.
In lieu of providing a prize to the winner who submitted the technology-financial pun moniker, we opted to donate to the animal-friendly charity to celebrate the ‘pawsitively pawsome’ new name.
Animal Welfare Society is a No Kill humane society serving all of York County. In addition to animal adoption, the shelter offers multiple community programs, such as Pets and Women to Safety, Paws Across America, Humane Education, behavior and training classes and an in-house veterinary clinic. Donations to the shelter go toward providing these services and fulfilling the mission of AWS.
“Seeing Cache debut and launching his blog have been a lot of fun for us”, said SIS Bank President Blaine Boudreau. “We are happy to see his name bring joy and aid to others—humans and animals alike!”
