Invisible Fence Brand will donate $10,000 to the shelter that wins
Invisible Fence Brand has launched its fifth-annual nationwide From Shelter to Forever Home Donation Contest on July 1, 2023, to raise awareness of lost pets and encourages the community to unite for the cause.
"We're proud to host our From Shelter to Forever Home Contest for a fifth year,” stated Chad Elmore, director of marketing for Invisible Fence Brand, in a company release.1 "The contest is expected to receive thousands of entries and bring awareness to lost pet prevention and help keep pets in their forever homes across the US."
According to the American Humane Society,2 about 10 million dogs and cats are lost in the US each year. The goal of the From Shelter to Forever Home Donation Contest is to decrease the number of missing pets and help increase the shelter's return-to-owner rates.1 Through August 31, 2023, the public can nominate their local animal shelter for them to have the chance to win a grand prize of $10,000, donated on behalf of Invisible Fence Brand. The shelter or rescue with the most nominations will win the donation.
In 2022, Invisible Fence Brand received over 30,000 nominations for more than 1,000 various shelters in all 50 US states.1 A previous grand prize winner, Speranza Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania, was put the funds towards helping feed, care for, and cover veterinary bills for the over 570 animals in their care. "On average, it costs us anywhere between $75,000 and $105,000 a month to care for all our animals," said Christy, a volunteer at Speranza. "We greatly appreciate your support!"
Votes for a shelter can be made on Invisible Fence Brand’s website and the contest can be shared on social media to bolster awareness.
