April 23rd is Pet Challenge Day at HPPR! Who will reign supreme? Cats? Dogs? Iguanas? Vote now and pledge your support for great public radio now! (Pledge Here)
For every $100 pledged to HPPR today, we'll donate one underwriting announcement to benefit humane societies. For example, a goal of $7,500 for that day would net 75 announcements. That would be over 12 announcements per month to be aired during regular programming over the next six months.
Here’s how it works:
For the entire day, household pets and those who love them will be featured during our Spring Membership Drive. We'll have Terry Sutherland, of the Finney County Humane Society in the studio to encourage listeners to call 800-678-7444 and pledge their financial support to HPPR in honor of a beloved pet.
Announcements will feature a variety of scripts, reminding listeners of the importance of being responsible pet owners through spaying and neutering, getting regular pet check ups, and keeping vaccinations up to date. This will help provide awareness of local humane societies and pet shelters, adoption and the need for volunteers to foster pets in their homes.
It’s a win-win for the humane societies, for pets, and for public radio across the High Plains!
