Wisconsin Humane Society Takes on ASPCA Challenge to Save Lives
Winning Shelter to Receive $100,000 ASPCA Grant
MILWAUKEE - The Wisconsin Humane Society has been chosen to participate in the Save More Lives – ASPCA $100K Challenge, competing for a $100,000 grant from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) will be competing against other shelters across the country during the months of August, September, and October for two prizes. $100,000 will go to the shelter that achieves the greatest increase in lives saved over the three month period. $25,000 will go to the shelter that engages the largest number of members of the community who help in saving more lives. WHS has to have at least 300 more cat and dog adoptions than they did in the same period in 2009 to qualify for any prizes.
Plans are in the making for creative ways to increase the number of adoptions at the shelter and market this fabulous promotion to Southeastern Wisconsin. Sign up for the Howler e-newsletter to keep updated on the ASPCA $100K Challenge at www.wihumane.org.
