Movement heads to Wyoming to raise awareness for animal shelters nationwide

Giving a voice to the voiceless, Jordan’s Path, a national nonprofit, will mark the next stop on its 50-state Wyoming tour as it helps raise money for local animal shelters and rescues across the country. Featured on outlets like the Hallmark Channel and the Dodo, Jordan’s Way will partner with organizations across the state to work to provide the building blocks of a compassionate community of pet parents eager to provide a permanent home to animals in need.

Each month, the Jordan’s Way team, made up of a massive team of volunteers and led by founder Kris Rotonda, visits two rescues a day in a new state. The organization is hosting a four-hour Facebook Live fundraiser that features games, challenges, rescue animals, volunteers and other festivities.

Then his challenges became more telling, like spending 72 hours in a dog crate at a Florida animal shelter to better convey his message. His efforts, including training to pull a 3,400-pound car for 24 hours on National Adopt-a-Pet Day from a shelter next April 30, have since helped hundreds of rescue groups and raised millions of dollars. dollars to educate these kind-hearted organizations.
