YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Humane Society of Central Washington came up short in their quest to win a major grant contest.
The shelter entered into the Rachael Ray 100K Challenge earlier this year.
They were competing for both a $100,000 grand prize for numbers of animals adopted, and a $25,000 community engagement award. They did not win either award.
The Humane Society says they're now planning other ways to raise the money for the clinic.
"Getting out there in front of the community, asking for community support.. And not only from the residents around the Yakima Valley, but also from businesses in the area," says Humane Society Executive Director Wendy St. George.
They estimate the clinic will cost about $250,000 to build.
The shelter didn't walk away empty handed from the contest. They did get $6,000 for meeting their adoption goals and for winning a smaller side-contest.
