I just got home from a three hour board meeting for the no-kill shelter. We currently have 230 dogs, a lot of expenses, and not enough income. It's up to us on the board to find ways (other than grants) to bring in funds. We have a nice grant for our spay/neuter program, but need money for daily operating costs. We've had fish fries, etc. but we need to raise big money. One of our board members is owner of a number of car dealerships, and he is going to check on my suggestion to see if we can get the other dealerships to have a competition to see who can raise the most money within a certain time frame. I also thought I would check to see if we could get this going among some of the local fast food places--maybe pizza places one month, burger places another. We have batted ideas around until we are just frustrated. How about some creative ideas from some of you on the list?
