Welcome to Smarta's Fundraising Page
We all know my love for animals. I have decided to run the Chicago Marathon and fundraise money for animals like my baby Avicii. Chicago can be a tough place for our furry friends as the winters are hard enough wearing our overpriced winter coats and being in our heated homes. I am choosing to run for all these animals who still need a warm home and maybe one of those cute sweaters. Unfortunately, all animals don't have the same luxury as us. Luckily there's organizations like this one who take in all animals and provide them with the best environment they can. I have chosen the Anti-Cruelty Society because this organization is not only the oldest, largest, animal organization in Chicago but they never turn down any animal. Knowing animals like my Avicii would not be turned down by them is what makes this place so great. I hope you can help me reach my goal of $1,750 to help support this organization in continuing to care for all animals until they find their forever home.
Here's a little more aboout the ogranization:
In 1899, Rose Fay Thomas, wife of Chicago Symphony Orchestra founder Theodore Thomas, established The Anti-Cruelty Society and forever changed the landscape of animal welfare throughout the Chicago region. Since that time, the Society has endured as Chicago's oldest and largest open admission animal welfare organization, one that provides a wide breadth of programs that save the lives of thousands of animals each year. A certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the recipient of a four-star Charity Navigator rating, The Anti-Cruelty Society’s mission is to build a community of caring by helping pets and educating people.
Today, The Anti-Cruelty Society remains the oldest and the largest open admission animal welfare organization in Chicago. All animals are welcome at the Society every day of the year. We never turn an animal away from our doors. Ever. And once an animal is admitted, they can stay as long as it takes to find their forever home.
However, the care that we provide to animals in need is only possible through the friendship and support of our community. And by choosing to run with Team Anti-Cruelty, you are making a difference to each and every one of the animals that comes to us in search of hope, comfort, and healing.
