We are thrilled to announce that Harmony House is part of the CrowdRise Holiday Challenge. The team that raises the most throughout the Challenge (November 18th – January 9th) will receive $100,000 for their cause. Second place gets $40,000 and third gets $20,000. There will also be lots of amazing prizes we can win every week like being on the front page of The Huffington Post, getting an addition $5000 or $10,000, etc.
Please click here and give whatever you can for the cats. Help us spread the word as well. If you email your co-workers, family and friends and ask them to help, we can get that much closer to winning the Challenge and rescuing more cats. The CrowdRise Holiday Challenge runs through January 9, 2014.
Harmony House spends an average of $250 for veterinary care, food and supplies for each new cat or kitten. We require an Intake Fee of $150 for each new cat or kitten that requires full medical care, and $75 per cat or kitten if they are already spayed / neutered, and up to date on vaccinations, worming and tests. Cats are admitted as space allows on a case by case basis. Harmony House does not keep a Waiting List for admissions since we receive so many admission requests each day.
On September 28th, State Senator Iris Martinez came to Harmony House for a tour, and to present us with a Certificate of Recognition from the State Senate of Illinois. It celebrates our 1st anniversary in the new shelter, and our eco-friendly building being awarded Platinum LEED status in November 2012. Pictured is Izze, a member of our staff, posing with the award.
