CLEVELAND — It’s that time of year again! 3News has partnered with the Cleveland Animal Protective League for the 10th annual Fur-Get-Me-Not Telethon. It’s a day-long effort to help raise money for the Cleveland APL.
“We’re doing it for all the animals we care for,” said Judy Hunter of the Cleveland APL.
Here are the three different ways you can donate to the telethon:
- Online: Click HERE to donate online.
- Sending a text: Simply text APL to 243725.
- By phone: You can call 216-566-PETS (7387) or 866-392-PETS.
“That phone bank you’re so used to, we can’t do, obviously, with social distancing,” Hunter said. “So we have 10 people in that room and then people in offices.”
Again, all proceeds will be used to benefit the Cleveland APL. The money helps assist the APL with medical care, animal rescue and daily care of animals at the shelter.
The Fur-Get-Me-Not telethon raised more than $57,000 last year.
