The Humane Society of Boulder Valley will park its mobile adoption van in the Camera’s front parking lot tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Come on down and visit with some amazing furry friends. Who knows? You might find your soul mate in the process and help the Humane Society win the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) $100K Challenge.
The Challenge requires shelters to save the lives of at least 300 more cats and dogs from August through October 2010 when compared to the same period in 2009. Our Humane Society has already gone way above and beyond that goal. As of this Monday, the organization is in first place for the Challenge, having helmed the adoptions of 1,891 animals since August 1 – an increase of 704 adoptions from the same time last year. It reunited 210 dogs and 95 cats with their guardians as well – more lives saved.
The Humane Society is also in the running for the ASPCA Community Engagement Award, a $25,000 grant that goes to the humane society that garners the most votes from its community. Do your part by voting at boulderhumane.org/vote daily between now and October 31.
Our Humane Society does so much for the animals and people in our community. Imagine how much more it could do with $125,000 more in the budget.
