Stray Rescue of St. Louis was invited to participate in a nationwide competitive giving challenge! We're going head to head with 32 other shelters from New York to California. If we raise more funds than "YOUR Humane Society SPCA in Lake Panasoffkee, FL, in THIS ROUND, which ends Wednesday March 10th, we'll advance to the Exceptional 8!
Help us get to the end and win the CHAMPIONSHIP! Stray Rescue will get every dollar that is donated during each round, BUT If we win the entire challenge, we'll get an additional $5,000 from Pacifico Cerveza!
