The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA needed your help in its mission to support animals in need, and CBS 8 viewers delivered in a big way.

News 8's Dan Cohen and Nichelle Medina hosted the Humane Society's annual telethon, and thanks to viewers' generosity, they raised more than $273,000.

On behalf of everyone at CBS 8 and the Humane Society, thank you for donating to Sunday's telethon.
