About the Amazing Raise 500 for $200 challenge:

The Amazing Raise is a Volunteer Capital Campaign Fundraising Challenge where we are asking 500 Volunteers to raise $200 towards our capital campaign. For each $200 raised you will get your name on a bone on the Amazing Raise sign in the kennel area, allowing everybody to see our progress towards our $100,000 goal.

Many of you already know that we need to raise $3.1M to purchase our current building. At this time, we have formally exercised the opportunity to finance the building purchase, but we need a $600,000 down payment that is due by December 1st, 2012.

The good part is that we have already raised $300,000 towards this financing option in the “quiet phase”. This leaves us with another $300,000 that we need to raise by December 1st. We believe the volunteers can assist us with $100,000 towards this $300,000 by joining our challenge. Are you up for the challenge?

About PAWSibilities®, Humane Society of Greater Akron:

Since 1968 PAWSibilities®, Humane Society of Greater Akron has been Summit County's trusted caretaker for underserved animals. We are the only animal entity in Summit County that enforces the legal mandate, provided in the Ohio Revised Code, to protect abused, abandoned and neglected companion animals and severely sick and injured stray animals. Our staff includes two full-time Humane Officers who respond to calls, investigate animal cruelty and, as warranted, prosecute offenders. Both are graduates of Ohio’s Peace Officer Training for humane agents. Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, abandoned and neglected animals of Summit County, place them in good homes, investigate and prosecute animal cruelty, while striving to set a standard of excellence and leadership in animal care, humane education, and progressive animal welfare programs.

Annually our organization rescues close to 2,000 animals in need. Our shelter provides on-site medical and surgical services, animal temperament assessment, Canine Enrichment Training, and community education programs. These programs offer Summit County residents the opportunity to learn about animal safety, the proper care of companion animals and the relationship between interpersonal violence and animal cruelty.

PAWSibilities®, Humane Society of Greater Akron has a variety of dogs, cats and other animals available for adoption. We are a no-time limit facility; adoptable animals are cared for until they find their forever home. All of our animals are current on age appropriate vaccinations, spayed or neutered, de-wormed, de-flead and micro-chipped before adoptions are finalized. Each adopted animal receives 30 days of complimentary insurance from Shelter Care. All dogs over six months of age receive a Temperament Assessment by our Certified Professional Dog Trainer to enhance appropriate placement. Also, many animals in our care receive basic obedience training to improve manners and increase adoptability.
