The Humane Society of Pikes Peak Region has taken up the challenge issued by the ASPCA and Rachel Ray. It is the $100K countdown to adoption sale.

HSPPR has set the goal of adopting out 100 cats and dogs tomorrow, June 1.The challenge lets the first adopter of the day, tomorrow receive a discount on adoption fees of $100, the second will receive a $99 discount, the third of the day will receive a $98 discount on adoption fees and so on till the hundred is adopted . After the first 100, the usual adoption fees apply.

Colorado Springs HSPPR is one of only 50 shelters nationwide to participate in this life saving event. The idea is to break your own record at finding homes for dogs and cats. This contest in addition to adopting out more dogs and cats than usual, also means a chance to win a healthy grant from the ASPCA.

Our local Humane Society has set a goal of 3,954 lives they want to save in this three month period. This is a three month long contest in which participating shelters must break their own record for the same previous years’ time period.

In southern Colorado, our local HSPPR is the largest non-profit animal shelter. They serve 25,000 animals each year. This full service shelter has many programs to address the issues of the growing population of unwanted pets. They also look out for pets with their investigative team.

The Humane Society is located at 610 Abbott Lane. If you are considering adopting a pet be at the Humane Society of Pikes Peak Region between 11am and 4:30 pm. You can find out more about this facility and pets available at their website www.hsppr.org
