On Saturday, September 14, 2019 I will be running the Big Cottonwood Marathon and have decided to use the marathon as an opportunity to fundraise for Best Friends Animal Society and create awareness of the organization.
Best Friends Animal Society is an organization that is close to my heart; not only does the organization do amazing lifesaving work, the orginization also educates and engages communites. Volunteer, Foster, Adopt.
I am truly grateful for the work that Best Friends Animal Society does and grateful to "give back".
Since it was founded in 1984, Best Friends Animal Society has helped reduce the number of dogs and cats killed in shelters nationwide from 17 million per year to about 800,000. That's incredible progress, but it means nearly 2,200 dogs and cats are still being killed in America's shelters every day, simply because they don't have safe places to call home. That number should be zero. And if we work together, it can be.
That's why I created this fundraiser.
When you donate to my fundraiser, you'll be helping around 1,600 dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, horses, and other barnyard animals who on any given day reside at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Plus, you'll be helping to save the lives of homeless pets all across the country through lifesaving adoption and spay/neuter programs, no-kill initiatives, and more.
Thank you for donating to help save animals' lives. Together, we will Save Them All.
