We reached our goal!

Starting April 9th, we began asking for your support in reaching our goal for the Fund the Shelters Challenge. The nation-wide Fund the Shelters Challenge is open to all animal welfare organizations dedicated to keeping pets out of shelters and in loving homes. The Challenge helps not only raise much-needed funds, but also helps to offset reduced adoption fees requested from adopters during the annual Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign, which takes place in August.

Our goal for the challenge was to raise $5,000 in the one month period, and our mission was More Rescues, More Adoptions.

And we did it! Between the period of the Challenge: April 9 until May 9, we rescued 8 pups from the street, and had 13 adoptions. That’s three more rescues from the previous period, and 8 more adoptions!

In terms of reaching our 5K goal, 32 people came to our rescue by donating a total of $5,640. We can’t thank all our rescue angels enough. And a special thank you to Ann B., who stayed with us throughout the challenge and continued her support from beginning to end!

We function because of your support and generosity. Your donations save lives and your kind words should be shared with everyone. Here’s to the ADLA Fund the Shelters 2019 Team:
