CAMPAIGN FOR CATS - Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue in Denver is in the midst of a campaign to raise $50,000 by September. The no-kill, cageless shelter started its Homes Can Come True Donation Drive on June 1.
The campaign is driven by the fact that the shelter experiences 40 percent of the year's intakes between May and August. Check the organization's website(www.rmfr-colorado.org)for more information.
227 LIVES SAVED - Five days into its campaign to win a national contest worth $100,000, Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden had saved 227 animals through adoption and reuniting lost pets with their owners.
Foothills is one of 50 animal shelters across the country to participate in the ASPCA/Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. The winner will be the shelter that shows the biggest increase in adoptions over last year between June 1- August 31.
The shelter is offering half-off adoption fees for all animals through Saturday, June 7. From June 8 through June 12 it will offer a $10 adoption fee for small dogs six months and older. Information:(www.FoothillsAnimalShelter.org)
REMEMBERING DAD - The Humane Society of Boulder Valley suggests a different sort of Father’s Day gift: make a donation in his honor and send him one of Boulder Humane's Father’s Day ecards. Visit the shelter's website(www.boulderhumane.org), where you can choose from one of six Father’s Day eCards that can be personalized.
The shelter also is offering Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month specials, including its June 6–8 "You gotta be kitten me" weekend special: 50 percent off kitten adoptions (less than 1 year), and fees waived for adult cats.
ART FOR ANIMALS - MaxFund will get 10 percent of the proceeds from "Woof, Meow, Chirp," a small show featuring paintings of animals that will open on Saturday, July 19 in the upper gallery of Arts at Denver on Gaylord Street.
Artists will choose two pets to paint from photos submitted by the public. Fifty percent of the sale of these two paintings will benefit MaxFund. Information:(www.artsatdenver.com)
