Door County Humane Society Currently Sits in Second for Saving Pets Challenge

The Door County Humane Society (DCHS) 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 organization is in second place and has raised $49,000.

DCHS is only one of four organizations representing Wisconsin in the competition. “It is phenomenal to be second in the nation and representing our state,” said DCHS Communications and Development Coordinator April Delfosse. “Our competition is fierce. We are up against larger shelters that have a much bigger demographic then us and yet we are holding our own.”

During this third week of competition, May 16-23, 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.
