New Beginnings Story Contest

If you adopted a cat from the Goathouse Refuge, please consider writing your "happy tails" story and submitting it to the New Beginnings Story Contest. You could help the Goathouse win a grant!

*Beginning January 10th, you can enter your "New Beginnings" rescue story and give your favorite eligible rescue organization the chance to win a grant to help animals. To be eligible, the story you submit must include the exact shelter name as registered with, as well as the state or province and hometown of your shelter or rescue organization. Please include Goathouse Refuge Inc., Pittsboro, NC in your story.

*On February 28th and 29th, judges at The Animal Rescue Site will pick five story finalists, each representing a different organization.

*Then, between March 2nd and 20th, everyone will have the chance to vote for their favorite stories - once every day! The top vote-getter will receive a $3,000 grant to help animals - and four runners-up will each receive a $1,000 grant.

Even if you don't have a story to submit, you can still vote every day in the annual Shelter+ Challenge, giving us a chance to win one of 60 $1,000 grants sponsored by Petfinder and The Animal Rescue Site.
