Homeward Trails Wins Ten Thousand Dollars!

givingIn a wonderful, collective effort by our many, many friends and supporters, Homeward Trails has been awarded a ten thousand dollar cash grant through the America’s Giving Challenge competition!

Beating out more than 8,500 national and international nonprofit organizations, HT is the only animal-focused group to win this prize.

How did we do this?

You made it possible. HT generated enough individual donations to secure a spot in the top eleven. With 1,674 donations and more than twenty eight thousand dollars raised, HT received an additional $10,000 award. Having entered the contest two weeks late, HT supporters wasted no time helping HT to move quickly up the list and remain in the top twenty almost daily.

“This amazing win will help us help so many homeless animals, ” says Sue Bell, HT Founder and Executive Director. “We are so incredibly grateful to each and every one of you wh donated and got others to. This was truly a collective effort. We thank you. “
