Last year, you donated to Adopt an Angel's Saving Pets Challenge and helped us raise over $32,000 placing us in 12th place in the entire country.

That money helped us save a record breaking 1130 animals in 2015. We are once again competing in the Saving Pets Challenge again this year. We are one week into the campaign and we are currently in 11th place out of 508 groups competing. The top 5 groups will earn $150,000 in grant money. Even if we don't win, we do get to keep all the money we raise. If you have already helped us this year we THANK YOU! If you haven't had a chance to donate yet--or may not know we are competing again---we are and we really need your help. The link to donate is
https://www.crowdrise.com/adoptanangel-SP2016. We have been offered a $10,000 matching donation if we can raise $10,000 and we are very, very close. The bills of rescue are so expensive and the more we save the more it costs. We would LOVE YOU if you supported our cause so we can save more. Any way you can share or fundraise for our cause would be helpful too. We are competing against much larger organizations in much larger cities. Help us save local animals homeless in our very own back yards.

Dear Adopt an Angel Family, …
Dear Adopt an Angel Family,
I wanted to let you all know that we recently received a grant from Network For Good for all the proceeds that we raised in the Saving Pets Challenge. It was close to $30,000 and it came from all of you. We took 13th place in the entire country out of close to 300 groups and that is a testament to the 296 people who contributed to this campaign.

In 2014, 5938 animals lost their lives due to pet overpopulation in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender County animal control shelters and I know that breaks all of our hearts. I want you to know that we are doing all we can physically do to save as many as we can. Our spay/neuter clinic fixed 139 pets last week and we are pushing harder and harder to do as many as we can to prevent pet overpopulation at its roots. We are calling all free kittens on Craig's list and offering to fix mother cats for free and we can do this because of this grant.

Every weekend we are holding marathon adoption fairs and adoptions every day in 3 pet stores. Right now we are in the thick of kitten season and we are literally swimming in homeless kittens. Shelters are overflowing and beg us weekly for help. We are running a special where it's "Adopt One Get One Free" hoping to get more kittens into homes quicker so we can save more. This Saving Pets Grant helps us do this. Many adult cats are languishing homeless while people have eyes only for kittens so we are waiving fees on adult cats to level the playing field for them. This grant helps us do this.

Recently, New Hanover County Animal Services had 4 dogs come into the shelter hit by a car over July 4th weekend. Resources from this grant helped us save two of them. One is named Archie and his knee is injured and his growth plate is affected. He needs the services of ECVR (a specialty vet) to repair his knee. This grant helps us help Archie. Countless dogs with heartworms are being treated and even senior dogs like Church, Sampson, Delilah, Charlotte, Joey Pepperoni and Macy are getting chances that they never would have gotten before. We can assure you that 2015 will see less animals euthanized in our area shelters. We are trying harder than we have ever tried before and our army of volunteers is bigger and stronger. Thank you for helping us help them. Thank you for helping us SAVE PETS!
I am forever grateful for your support.
Sincerely,
Jill Jones

We wanted to thank you for your help with this Saving Pets Challenge. You have been a great supporter of Adopt an Angel and we have always been able to count on you to lend a helping hand. Right now, we are in 12th place in the entire USA out of 300 groups. There are 4 more days to go. There is grant money available to the top 5 groups and we are very close. There is one last challenge that begins at 2 pm tomorrow. They will match the first 100 $25 donations made to all the groups. It will be a FAST challenge so if you would consider sending a $25 donation at 2 pm, it could be matched. The link to donate is here: https://www.crowdrise.com/aaa-savingpets2015

Adopt an Angel would love to thank you for your recent donation to our Saving Pets Challenge. It costs us on average about $142 to save JUST ONE animal so your contribution is so meaningful to us. Right now, we are in the 10th place position out of 292 groups across the country competing for free grant money. The top 5 groups win so we are very, very close. You can google Saving Pets Challenge 2015 and view the leaderboard to follow our progress. The campaign ends June 5. Thank you for helping us save animals. We save animals everyday, but we could NEVER do what we do without the funding from people like you who help us help them.
Sincerely,
Jill Jones

Dear Janet,
We are so sorry for the loss of Sassy. We know that she is loved and missed. We are so grateful you are choosing to honor her by donating to help a homeless pet. Right now, we are currently in 9th place in the entire USA out of 292 groups. If we can get into the top 5 we can win additional grant money. Even if we lose though, we get to keep all we raise. It costs us $142 to save just ONE animal so this campaign is going to help us save alot of homeless animals. We are so grateful for your help.
Sincerely,
Jill Jones
