BENEFITING: Western Pennsylvania Humane Society
ORGANIZER: Western Pennsylvania Humane Society
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014
Please help homeless animals in need of shelter, medical care, and food by donating to my fundraiser! I am running my first full marathon in 2014 in support of the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society, a well-run animal shelter here in Pittsburgh from which we adopted our adorable dog Gus. You can find information about WPHS here: www.wpahumane.org
The 2013 Pittsburgh Marathon raised over $67,000 for the homeless animals at WPHS. With a large portion of that money, they were able to purchase additional cages and hire an additional staff member to expand their offsite adoption efforts. In the 2012 fiscal year, they adopted out over 1,500 cats and kittens from their offsite locations. That means an additional 400+ lives were saved in 2012. The runners' fundraising efforts from the Pittsburgh Marathon helped them to achieve this. Lets work together in 2014 to help them achieve their goal of raising over $100,000 for the animals of the Western PA Humane Society, so that more of them can find good homes and enjoy the love and care we give Gus every day!
