We won the Pepsi Refresh Project!
Do you believe in miracles? One occurred on January 31st at midnight when No Kill Lehigh Valley Won $50,000 in the Pepsi Refresh Project! If this were an acceptance speech at the Academy Awards, the music would drown us out long before we could thank everyone that helped us win. Our small group became the sentimental favorite in the contest as we entered the final voting day in 11th place (top ten get the grant). We marshaled every member of the media, every Facebook friend, every animal group and animal lover we knew to vote us to an eleventh hour win that we didn't even know about until the next morning!
Boy are we going to make good use of the money trapping neutering and returning feral cats, providing funds for catastrophic veterinary surgeries, and holding spay/neuter clinics. Stay tuned for stories of animals we have helped already!
