he Moose Jaw Humane Society needs more votes if it's going to come close to making it in to the final rounds of the Aviva Community Fund competition that could potentially secure it the $10,000 grant it needs to upgrade their infrastructure.
“We’ve been fluctuating in our spacing. Sometimes we’ve been as high as seventh place in our category and we’ve been down as low as 14th place,” said MJHS fundraising and promotions co-ordinator Karla Pratt.
As of Monday afternoon the MJHS was in fourteenth place with 3,795 votes. “There’s about 400 votes between us and the next place up so we really, really need to keep it in the forefront of people memories,” said Pratt.
Even if the group manages to get the votes needed to get them into 10th place and into the finals, they would secure half of the funds they are asking for.
“If we are able to succeed in getting that $5,000, that would get us half of what we we’re looking to purchase for the new cat cages which would still make a big difference,” she said. “It would make a huge difference for our cats, and right now with having so many in the building, extra cages would be a boon to us.”
Voting ends this Wednesday. Everyone who registers to vote can vote daily at www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf13351.
