The Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago, TACS for short, is the city’s oldest and largest animal welfare organization. They have rescued many a pet, trained many a person and have done great service for our great city.
Starting yesterday, Monday, July 28th, The Anti-Cruelty Society started a partnership with the Pose a Pet™ App to raise much needed funds and generate community support! This is the first fundraiser of its kind that TACS has entered into.
The Pose a Pet™ App was designed for both Pet Parents and those organizations involved in animal rescue. It helps everyone get great pictures of their animals by using the same sounds that professional pet photographers use to get your pets attention. If you’re trying to get an animal adopted, great animal photos = more adoptions. The Pose a Pet™ App also allows animal rescuers the opportunity to create an eye-catching, virtual flier of the pet in need that can be shared instantly on their social media networks! The Pose a Pet™ App upgrade fee is $2.99, 50% of all net download fees go to a new, featured animal shelter or rescue group every week. Every penny that the Pose a Pet™ App takes in goes back into creating new technology solutions to save more homeless animals!
The fundraiser has been scheduled to continue until Saturday, August 3rd. During that appointed time, TACS will receive 50% of all net upgrade fees worldwide from the Pose a Pet™ App! The App, designed to snap a great photo of your pet using the same sounds that professional pet photographers use to get a pet’s attention, is also helping rescue animals at TACS find their forever home. A good photo of an animal makes all the difference in finding them a forever home. TACS + the Pose a Pet™ App = a great partnership!
By receiving the much needed funds, the Society plans to purchase new dog kennels in their Dog Adopts Room. They are excited to show everyone that they are ready, willing and able to participate in new and innovative programs like partnering with the Pose a Pet™ App and entering into the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge, a nationwide competition for animals shelters—and their communities—aimed at getting more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before. The Society is one of 50 shelters throughout the United States competing for a chance at more than $600,000 in grant funding, including a grand prize of $100,000.
