Save the Strays Sweepstakes Jackpot at $7,500

The Maddie's Pet Rescue Project has announced a jackpot of $7,500 for its first annual Save the Strays Sweepstakes.  Raffle tickets can be purchased for $20.  Ticket holders are then entered into a drawing for the grand prize, as well as a trip for two to Orlando, including airfare and three nights hotel, and a Kindle Fire.  The drawing will take place on February 29, 2012.

Each year, the six partner organizations of the Maddie's Pet Rescue Project care for over 15,000 dogs and cats combined.  The coalition was formed on October 1, 2009 to end the euthanasia of shelter pets in Erie County by the year 2014.  Since the Maddie's Project began, not one healthy animal has been euthanized.  The euthanasia of animals with treatable medical conditions is down by over 80%.  Proceeds from the Save the Strays Sweepstakes will help the Project partners to continue their lifesaving work by providing veterinary care for dogs and cats with a range of serious medical conditions.

To purchase a Save the Strays Sweepstakes ticket, stop by the SPCA's Walden Galleria Adoption Center or the SPCA Petique at 205 Ensminger Rd. in Tonawanda.  Tickets can also be purchased online via Pay Pal at http://www.maddieseriecounty.org/UpcomingEvents.html.  The February 29th drawing will occur at ZGM Gallery's Take a Leap Open House, sometime between 5pm and 9pm.  The ZGM Gallery is located at 1045 Elmwood Avenue. 

A maximum of 1,250 tickets will be sold, giving ticket holders a 1 in 416 chance of winning a prize.  Buffalo, NY is the lottery capital of the United States, and Save the Strays has some of the best odds in town.
