2017 Saving Pets Challenge



Are you up for the Challenge? The Door County Humane Society is counting on you to support the Shelter! Starting May 2nd through June 1st DCHS is, for the third year, enrolled in the Michelson Found Saving Pets Challenge. This challenge has over 500 animal welfare organizations competing to see which group can raise the most money for their organization in 30 days!  All competing organizations receive the money they raise online, in addition to the chance to win $150,000 in bonus prizes!

Last year DCHS raised over $100,000 and placed fourth in the nation. This year the organization aspires to again raise over $100,000 and place in the top 5.

To donate, go to www.crowdrise.com/door-county-humane-society-savingpetschallenge.  All donations must be given online in order for them to count to DCHS’s grand total. We rely on donors for over 95% of our funding.  This is the time for you to donate Door County.  Our dogs and cats need your support.

Bonus Challenge #4: May 23 – May 30
​Every organization with 5 active fundraisers* is entered for a chance to win $1,000 and the organization with the most active fundraisers wins $3,000.
Note: Fundraisers have to be “active”, meaning they need to have raised at least $10 online on their individual fundraising page to be counted when determining the winner of the Bonus Challenge; so it’s not enough to recruit fundraisers; your fundraisers need to be raising money to count.​

Bonus Challenge #5: May 30 – June 1
