The Door County Humane Society is in a big challenge in more ways than one. Besides trying to temporarily care for over 700 animals every year, the Humane Society is in the midst of the national Michelson Found Animals Saving Pets Challenge. April Delfosse, communications and development coordinator for the Door County Humane Society, says they are competing with other pet groups all across the country for a special grant from the Pets Challenge.
As of Friday, The Door County Humane Society has raised over $18,000 of their $100,000 goal. The challenge goes until May 31. Two anonymous donors will match $20,000 when that threshold is met, according to Delfosse. The Michelson Found Animal Savings Pets Challenge raised nearly $1.3 million for shelter/rescue animals across the country last year with over 600 pet groups participating. You can find information on the challenge and the seven dogs and 65 cats that are available for adoption at the Humane Society with the link below.
