AnimalPalooza organizers have two goals for the event: 1) To raise funds that will assist in the care of homeless animals and 2) To raise awareness of the homeless animal situation – especially among young people. The group hopes to start a scholarship fund for area youth who volunteer at local shelters and animal rescue facilities.
All proceeds raised at the AnimalPalooza music festival will help the Warrick Humane Society and other shelters and animal control centers find homes for surrendered and homeless animals; reunite lost pets with their families; and reduce animal euthanasia rates.
AnimalPalooza sponsorship opportunities for businesses and individuals range from monetary contributions to raffle item donations. More information at animalpalooza.net.
