BENEFITING: Humane Animal Rescue
ORGANIZER: Humane Animal Rescue
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014
This May, I plan to run the 5K run (not the actual marathon as the title suggests) both to better my health and to honor the memory of my sweet little cat Scaramanga, who I lost this past year. I am trying to raise money for the Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center- a truly incredible organization I have tried to support over the past several years and the shelter that gave me my best friend.
I appreciate any amount of money that you are willing to give. I will also be selling raffle tickets for $10 each to win tickets to the Pittsburgh Penguins' last game of the season on Sunday, April 13.
Please email me at email@example.com if you are interested in purchasing tickets to this raffle and we can talk logistics:)

Welcome to Paws Over Pittsburgh, the Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center's page for the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. We're thrilled that you have decided to step beyond yourself and include the well-being of domestic and wild animals as part of your overall training plan. By choosing to partner with the Animal Rescue League, you will be an advocate of our mission to educate people, as well as care for and restore animals to good homes. In return, we will partner with your training through opportunities to meet and exercise with like-minded friends, receive fun prizes for your advocacy milestones, and encourage your desire to Run for their Rescue!
Here are some of the ways we'll use the funds you raise:
- $30 will cover the cost of micro-chipping a cat or dog.
- $50 will provide low-cost spay/neuter services to a family who couldn’t otherwise afford it.
- $100 will provide behavioral training for an animal to help her find a new home more quickly.
- $1,000 will cover the total care for an animal that stays in our shelter for one month.
