EVENT: Saving Pets Challenge 2015
The story of how I came to be a crazy animal person-
Several years ago I learned about puppy mills. I became filled with the drive to DO something. Really do something, ya know? I started volunteering locally, writing letters to the editor, took part in a Chain-Off to raise money once. That means I, along with other animal nuts across the nation, chained myself to a doghouse for hours in the hot sun. I have fostered many animals, even taken in a few on my own and found them homes. I gave a speech about spaying & neutering when I took a communications class at IPFW, which caused at least one other person to delve into animal rescue ( which I am very proud of...). I have run along the median of I 69 at midnight to try and contain a loose dog. What I'm saying is there really is no limit to what I'll do for a cause I love and for this organization that I love so much.
The Allen County SPCA has a chance to win $50,000 and, naturally, I'll do all I can to help out. We have until June 5th to raise money, so I hope you will consider making a small ( or big is okay too... ) donation.
Thanks so very much,
ALLEN COUNTY SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS wrote -
The Allen County SPCA has been providing a safe haven for homeless cats and dogs in Northeast Indiana for more than 60 years. Our animals come to us from a variety of circumstances and require attention from the moment they arrive. Operating without any financial support from the government, the Allen County SPCA survives through the generosity of pet lovers in our community who wish to help dogs and cats in need.
Our organization provides a safe haven for stray and surrendered cats and dogs in our community until they find their permanent homes. Our limited intake facility offers an effective and comprehensive adoption program which places hundreds of dogs and cats into loving homes. While in our care, we provide medical and rehabilitation services as necessary to give the animals the best opportunity for adoption.
In addition, to deepen the impact of our organization and its reach, we offer additional services such as a weekly pet food bank open to those pet owners in need throughout our community. Our community pet food bank and resource center is open on Saturdays between the hours of 9 - 11 am when we have food available.
