In 2016, we challenged you to “Be The One to Be The Love.” At noon on September 20, 2016, and for the next 23 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds, you showed your love for HSSC. You liked our posts and photos on social media. You came out to see us on our “Be The Love” tour around Sarasota. You donated to the Giving Challenge. Ultimately, you raised $96,000 for HSSC. That’s a lot of love!
And you haven’t stopped showing the love since. Every time HSSC completes an adoption, hands out a bag of food, teaches a dog to sit, or lends a paw in the community—it’s love in action. It would not be possible for HSSC to do what we do without your support. You Are The One. You Are The Love.
Love is what powers our mission to engage the hearts, hands, and minds of the community to help animals.
We LOVE our supporters, and we appreciate every one of you.
To celebrate the 2016 Giving Challenge, HSSC took to the streets in our Mobile Adoption Center (“Big Mac”). Beginning at noon on September 20, 2016, Big MAC cruised around Sarasota. We spread the word about the Giving Challenge, and we had some furry friends with us. We posted real-time updates of Big MAC’s location on HSSC’s Facebook page all day, and we had a lot of fun. Here are a few of the stops HSSC visited for the #BeTheLove Tour:
