DOOR COUNTY, Wis. - The Door County Humane Society is in the middle of the Michelson Found Animals Saving Pets Challenge.
This month-long fundraising competition consists of hundreds of animal welfare organizations across the nation all competing to see who can raise the most money for their cause in 30 days.
The fundraising event kicked off on Tuesday, May 2nd and runs through June 1st. This is the third year that DCHS is competing in the Saving Pets Challenge. Last year the organization placed fourth in the nation and raised over $100,000 for our animals. Currently, the organization is in second place and has raised over $50,000.
DCHS is only one of four organizations representing the state of Wisconsin in this competition.
Each week of the Saving Pets Challenge has a mini challenge to encourage supporters to donate to their animal group. During this third week of competition (May 16th -May 23rd), the two organizations that raise the most money online will play Rock Paper Scissors. The winning organization gets $5,000 and the organization that doesn't win gets $2,000.
First place receives a $50,000 bonus prize.
To donate simply go to www.doorcountyhumanesociety.org and click the red square button that says DONATE, found on the right hand side of the screen. Please remember that all donations must be given online in order for them to count to DCHS’s grand total.
