FUNDRAISING
 
The more you raise for homeless pets, the bigger difference you make — and the more prizes you unlock. Raising just $35 helps provide vaccines to a pet, and raising $100 cares for a litter of puppies/kittens for a day. With your help, we can give a second chance to the pets who need us most. 
 
The final prize level earned will be determined by the total amount raised by 2 pm on Saturday, September 18. Prizes can be picked up at the Fundraising redemption tent on Sunday. All funds raised after the cutoff time continue to help care for the pets at the ARL.
