STURGEON BAY, WI (August 2, 216) – The Door County Humane Society has only a few days left to compete in the national Saving Pets Challenge. Since July 5th, DCHS has been battling it out with hundreds of other animal welfare organizations all competing to see who can raise the most money for their cause in a single month.
Currently, DCHS is in third place nationally and has raised a $72,843 so far. The Saving Pets Challenge is not over, though. DCHS will continue to compete from now until August 4th at 1pm to raise even more. The organization’s original goal was to raise $50,000; however, due to the community’s overwhelming support and generosity within the first two weeks of the competition, that goal was exceeded and their new goal is $100,000.
“Not only are we aiming to raise $100,000, we also want to place within the top five when the Challenge ends on August 4th at 12:59 pm. This will not only put the Door County Humane Society on the nation’s radar but it also will give DCHS the opportunity to receive additional bonus money,” said Communications & Development Coordinator April Delfosse.
Delfosse went on to explain, “This additional bonus money would be extremely helpful to the animals in the shelter. It would give DCHS the ability to expand programs, create more outreach opportunities, and most importantly help even more animals on the peninsula.”
To spice things up further, an anonymous group of donors are adding a bit of extra incentive to the Challenge. This group said that once DCHS has raised $75,000 they will donate an additional $3,000 to DCHS! This is another tremendous opportunity for the shelter and will give them an even better chance of reaching their goals and placing in the top five of the Challenge.
