Many shelters and rescues have a great need for support, so we are excited to be able to raise awareness for them while also offering some funds to cover some of their expenses.
WORTHINGTON, Ohio (PRWEB) October 24, 2022
Voting is now open for MedVet’s Shelter Surprise contest which will award three deserving shelters cash prizes to support the important work they do to save pets. Out of hundreds of nominations, 10 animal shelter and rescue organizations were chosen, and it’s now up to the public to decide which organization will receive cash prizes.
“We are honored to collaborate with many animal shelters and rescues that are working to save pets and place them with loving families,” said Dr. Linda Lehmkuhl, Chief Executive Officer of MedVet. “These facilities are typically under-resourced for the important work they are doing. Many shelters and rescues have a great need for support, so we are excited to be able to raise awareness for them while also offering some funds to cover some of their expenses.”
Throughout September and October, individuals nominated deserving shelters and rescues for the contest, and now the public is invited to cast their votes for the organization they would like to see win the top prize. Voting is open from Oct. 24-Nov. 4. The organization with the most votes will receive $2,000, the second-place organization will receive $1,250, and a third winner will receive $500. Winners will be announced during National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week, which takes place Nov. 6-13.
The 10 finalist organizations are:
- Asheville Humane Society in Asheville, NC
- Cincinnati Animal CARE in Cincinnati, OH
- Dallas Dog RRR in Dallas, TX
- For the Love of Cats in Commerce, MI
- Meridian Canine Rescue in Meridian, ID
- Northshore Humane Society in Covington, LA
- Paws Up 4 Rescue in Joliet, IL
- Project Precious Rescue in Stamford, CT
