Vote for us, the Texarkana Humane Society every day! The Texarkana Humane Society is asking for help from the Texarkana community. The Shelter Showdown Contest will award $25,000 to the grand prize winner with the most votes, followed by the second place winner receiving $15,000 and third place winner receiving $10,000.
President Sherrie Thompson stated the reasons why she would like for Texarkana residents to rally behind the organization. “We are a non-profit and we are all volunteers. The Texarkana Humane Society is supported through fundraisers, donations and our membership drive. With the money we raise it helps us to care for the animals we have in foster care, we also have our MAD program that helps our community in getting their pets altered and vaccinated at a greatly reduced cost. We also help individuals in our community with pet food and veterinarian care. We are only able to do this because of the money we raise,” stated Sherrie Thompson.
Please note that the Pets Add Life contest is not accepting votes on certain mobile devices such as smart phones, tablets, iPads, etc. Updates will be made on our Facebook page concerning this.
