CLEVELAND - The 2012 Pledge For Pets Radiothon kicked off Friday morning at 6 a.m. Over 200 volunteers are ready to accept your donations through Saturday afternoon.
Q104 morning hosts Allan Fee and Katherine Boyd will be broadcasting until 6 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
Over the past seven years, the Radiothon has raised $816,000. The goal for this year is to reach $1 million. No donation is too big or too small.
Your donation of $20 will feed hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and ferrets for one month. $40 will provide food for puppies and dogs in the shelter for one day. $50 will provide cat litter and litter pans for one day.
If you'd like to help the APL a different way, why not adopt a pet? Adoption fees are reduced this weekend to $71.04 for dogs, $104.10 for puppies, $10.41 for cats and $41.00 for kittens.
The Cleveland APL also offers volunteer programs and foster care programs. There are so many ways to get involved!
It costs $11,000 a day to operate the Cleveland APL; that's 4 million dollars a year. The APL is funded only by private donations. They receive no federal or state assistance. So please call today and help save the lives of local animals.
You can donate online or by calling 216-566-PETS.
