Pounds for Hounds
Prince George Humane Society
What got you through the coronavirus shutdown? Was it the sourdough bread craze or did you read books to get through the extra time at home? The “new normal” now for many people includes carrying around a few extra pounds.The Prince George Humane Society together with Alisha Adams Lifestyle have created a fun and interactive way to help people lose those quarantine pounds while supporting their efforts to ensure that every pet finds a safe furrever home.
The Prince George Humane Society has faced some tough economic challenges, but Covid-19 made it particularly hard to fund our much needed community services. We get 100% of our operating funds from donations and fundraising programs and have had to look at alterative ways to raise money for the animals.
The Prince George Humane Society invites everyone to join the Pounds for Hounds 8 week weight-loss challenge. This challenge provides the incentives people need to set — and keep — a weight-loss goal while raising money for the animals. This fundraiser also encourages individuals to create teams and work collectively to motivate and encourage their personal goals.
