Fund the Shelters Challenge

April 9th-May 9th


Emerald City Pet Rescue is excited to announce that we are participating in the Fund the Shelters Challenge, a month-long online fundraising competition where hundreds of animal welfare organizations from across the country compete for grant prize money. The Fund the Shelters Challenge is presented by Michelson Found Animals and NBC and Telemundo owned stations.

The Fund the Shelters Challenge will be launched on CrowdRise by GoFundMe on Tuesday, April 9 at 12 pm ET and will continue through Thursday, May 9 at 1: 59:59 pm ET. The organization that raises the most during the Challenge wins a $50,000 donation, second place gets $35,000, third gets $20,000, fourth gets $15,000, fifth gets $10,000, and sixth gets $5,000.
