.......and just like that, 2-1/2 hours later......the CHALLENGE HAS BEEN COMPLETED!!! Thank you all for your pledges!
Also, there is a possibility of a small "Cozies for Pets" challenge for this shelter. They have an onsite pet program for temporary care until outside foster care can be arranged, but the shelter does not have a lot of storage space. We are waiting to hear back from Barb, who is going to check with the shelter.
