Successful Homes for Dogs Event at Lompoc shelter
Coldwell Banker Select Realty was proud to sponsor our 1st Annual Homes for Dogs event on September 28-289th, National Pet Adoption Weekend. The 5 year campaign was launched by Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC and Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website.
During the month of September, we had donation boxes displayed at various business around Lompoc gathering new and slightly used pet supplies to benefit the shelter animals as well as the Veterans Stand Down event that will take place on October 19th. Low income and homeless veterans will be given needed supplies to help care for their pet and whatever is not used will go back to our local shelter animals.
We paid 100% of adoption fees for 13 dogs and cats at the weekend event and saw an additional 7 adopted through the month of September as we featured a "Dog of the Day" on our social media platforms. We also raised $308 in cash donations and gathered 400 lbs of pet supplies.
In addition to our agents efforts, we had many affiliates and local businesses offer raffle prizes for us to give away to drive traffic to the event. We had 24 raffle prizes and a drawing every 1/2 hour. We are so grateful for the support we were given by the real estate and business community of our small town. It was a win for everyone involved, especially our furry friends!
Even though this is our first annual local event, the Coldwell Banker network has already helped over 10's of thousands dogs get adopted across the country. We are lucky enough to help people in the Lompoc community find new homes every day, now we get to extend that service to pets in need. It's a win-win. We can't wait until next year!
