Charlotte-Area Rescue Competing in “2018 Saving Pets Challenge” For $25,000 Prize


Saving Southern Kitties, a volunteer foster-based animal rescue serving the Charlotte area, is competing in the Michelson Found Animals 2018 Saving Pets Challenge, a fundraiser dedicated to raising money and awareness for organizations that work to keep pets out of shelters and into loving homes.

The challenge encourages participating organizations to raise money for their causes and in turn, groups that raise the most money during the challenge will be rewarded with grants of up to $25,000 from Michelson Found Animals.

They are also competing for a 1-week bonus prize of $5,000;

Saving Southern Kitties is raising money to save the lives of cats and kittens from high kill facilities in the Charlotte area.

“Our organization works hard to save cats and kittens, many who are sick, injured and are on their last chance at life,” said Susan Schreck,  President of Saving Southern Kitties. “We are constantly working throughout the Charlotte-area to get these cats the medical attention they need and then, find them the most qualified forever homes.”

As a foster based rescue, the foster parents welcome the kitties into their homes, arrange their vet care, spend lots of hours loving and caring for them often teaching them that it’s okay to trust again until they are able to start seeking their forever homes.

“Our goal is to raise enough funds to support our own rescue facility. This would give Saving Southern Kitties a central location for all our cats and a place for future cat parents to find us, ultimately, allowing us to save the lives of more cats and kittens,” said Schreck.

The 2018 Saving Pets Challenge is currently running on CrowdRise through Thursday, May 31st.
