Wanted to ask if shelters are seeing an uptake or downward trend in their annual holiday appeal this year?

We support our shelter mostly by bingo and it is really down so we have had to ask the community for more donations and become creative about fundraising. Get a group together and talk about creative ways to fund raise, you may have to work harder but it can be done.

Each of the HSCC events this past year seemed to generate more funds than they had in the past. HSCC has one very creative individual that has organized a couple new events that did very well. They also had an art show and sale, where people donated animal-related pieces of art and the sale raised over $3,000.

we have had a mixed reaction in fund raising this year. One event we held did not make as much as last year, yet our holiday bazaar made a thousand more than last year. We serve 5 towns and find that one town in particular spends more of thier money with another rescue. But otherwise I think we will be on an even road.
