Where is the love?

Wayside Waifs is starting a new blog feature called Wordless Wednesdays. Each Wednesday, we will feature photos with a theme. Perhaps it will be volunteers, long-term waifs, or fun animal photos. Today’s blog post features adoption success photos you submitted to Wayside Waifs via social media. We love them so be sure to keep tagging us when you post!

Sharing Adoption Success

After more than 150 days at Wayside Waifs, Dollar finally found his person. Within minutes of meeting each other, Dollar was giving plenty of hugs and kisses. #100KSaved #100KChallenge

In the last six weeks, Wayside Waifs has challenged Kansas City to help us find loving homes for hundreds of homeless dogs and cats in our community. Your adoptions are helping us qualify for grant funding to ensure our emergency shelter and rescue services continue to be available for animals that need them.

This past weekend, you answered the call once again through Adoptathon. Wayside would like to give a big thank you to 106.5 The Wolf and all the incredible Kansas Citians who came to out to adopt.

YOU can help Wayside Waifs in one more way simply by sharing your adoption success. Your entry in the ASPCA/Rachael Ray $100K Challenge Photo Contest could help Wayside Waifs win up to $5,000. If you adopted from us between June 1 and July 15 – you are eligible! It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Take a photo of your newly adopted pet

2. Go to www.aspca.org/100kphoto

3. Submit your photo and fill in the form. YOUR photo could help us save more lives!

Please don’t delay – the deadline to submit your photo is this Monday, July 15th at 10:59PM.

A panel of ASPCA judges will select 40 photo finalists to compete for prizes. Then, the public gets to cast the deciding votes between July 22nd and August 4th by liking and/or repinning their favorite photos on Pinterest. Likes count as one vote and re-pins count as two. Sixteen winners will be selected and grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 will be given to the adoptee’s alma mater. Plus, winning submitters will receive an ASPCA t-shirt and water bottle!

Your adoption help wins life-saving funding

From June 1 through August 31, Wayside Waifs is competing in the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100,000 Challenge. As Kansas City’s largest and most comprehensive no kill pet adoption campus, we set a goal to help find “fur”ever homes for 1,831 animals this summer. But we can’t do it alone!

What is the ASPCA Rachael Ray Challenge?
The goal of the challenge is simple – to increase pet adoptions across the country. Wayside was one of 50 shelters nationally and the only one in the Kansas City metro area chosen for this competition. More than $600,000 in prize grants are available with funds ranging from $5,000 to $100,000. In this contest – every animal wins!

How to HelpHow can Wayside win a grant?
When you adopt a pet from Wayside Waifs, it puts us closer to winning one of several major grants from the ASPCA. These grants will continue to fund life-saving medical care, rescue missions, animal behavior rehabilitation and ultimately help more animals find their forever homes this year.

Throughout the summer, visit our website to learn more about pet adoption specials.

Share the mission
Another way you can help Wayside win grant funding is by getting social with us. Just follow us on your favorite social media site(s) – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, or Pinterest. Please be sure to engage with us by sharing, liking, or retweeting our content. Your participation helps spread our mission to other perspective adopters.

Community Engagement
Tell your friends why you love Wayside by using #WaysideWaifs in your social media posts. When you generate social media posts about the Challenge, please use #100KChallenge.  When you share your adoption success stories, please use #100KSaved in your post.  This will allow these posts to appear on the ASPCA/Rachael Ray $100K Challenge Facebook and Twitter feeds and will also help us in the competition.

Together we can make a difference in the lives of abandoned, abused and homeless pets!
