The Humane Society of Boulder Valley was one of 50 shelters across the nation chosen to compete in 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.

To increase its chances of winning, our Humane Society hopes to save at least 1,000 more animals’ lives during the competition. As of this Monday, the organization has helmed the adoptions of 1,716 animals since August 1 – an increase of 652 adoptions for the same time last year. It also reunited 192 dogs and 87 cats with their guardians – more lives saved.
The Humane Society is currently in first place for the Challenge, but it could use some help for the final push to win the $100,000 ASPCA grant.

Businesses can help local animals find homes and help the Humane Society win the Challenge by sponsoring a Pet Project ad in the Camera. It’s a great cause, excellent top-of-mind advertising and very affordable at only $150 for full color placement. Contact Ben Metzker at 303.473.1413 or metzkerb@dailycamera.com
