we did it! in just one day DCHS moved up 18 spots from 51 to 33! this means we move on to the qualifying round....and the life saving.
the ASPCA may be embracing some no kill strategies - shocking, right? they are holding a contest to award $100,000 to the shelter that has the largest increase in lives saved and our own DCHS is in the running.
only the top 50 shelters with the most votes will get to go on to compete for the $ (and save lives!). DCHS is currently sitting at 51. so vote! (hint: you can use multiple email addresses if you've got 'em.)
maybe this is the kick in the pants our shelter needs to finally go no kill once and for all.
