We’re getting pretty pumped for the ASPCA Rachael Ray 100k Challenge here at the Animal Rescue League of Boston. One of the keys to succeeding in the challenge, and having a shot at winning some grant money for our shelter animals, is planning! So, yesterday some of our staff and volunteers got together to brainstorm ideas for how to get more people to our 3 shelters this summer and what meeting would be complete without an animal? After all, they’re the reason why we’re doing this and quite frankly, Major, the cat, had some pretty good ideas for increasing our adoption numbers this summer!
In order to have a chance at winning a $100,000 grant for our shelters we have to adopt out at least 300 more dogs and cats throughout the months of June, July and August. There’s also a $25,000 Community Engagement Award. As the name indicates, this grant is all about community, which means YOU. We’ll need you to be active on Facebook and Twitter sharing and liking any of our posts that have the #100kChallenge hashtag in them. The more our photos are shared and liked, the higher the chance that we’ll win the grant!
