Supporters, through online voting, have won a prize for Heartland Humane Society, Yankton, in The Animal Rescue Site’s 2013 $100,000 Shelter+ Challenge in conjunction with Petfinder. The animal welfare organization came in second in the state’s tally of votes, earning the group 100 vaccinations for the animals in its care. A complete list of all winners can be found at The Animal Rescue Site, www.theanimalrescuesite.com.
“These challenges have been a wonderful opportunity for Petfinder.com members,” says Lisa Robinson, executive director of the Petfinder.com Foundation. “The winners not only have a chance to win prizes, but the challenges really bring the shelter’s supporters together with a common mission for adoptable pets.”
GreaterGood’s The Animal Rescue Site has funded more than $1.3 million in grants to shelters and rescue groups since the Challenges began in 2008. The funds for the grants come from The Animal Rescue Site’s innovative Click to Give(tm) program and site sponsors.
