LEWISTON — The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society has been selected to take part in a Jordan’s Way fundraiser.

As part of his 50-state tour, Kris Rotonda, founder of Jordan’s Way, plans to be at the 55 Strawberry Ave. society from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, May 20, in his mission to bring attention to unnoticed pets in shelters.

During his four-hour non-stop live Facebook fundraiser, he plans to focus on the animals in the shelter, to help bring community awareness and life-saving funds in for the shelter. The events help clear the shelters by promoting adoptions and donations, providing assistance to shelters by placing animals in loving homes.

“We are thrilled to be chosen as one of the few shelters Kris will visit on his tour through Maine,” said Katie Lisnik, society executive director, according to a society news release. “This is a fun opportunity to showcase needy animals and we are thankful to be able to participate.”

Planned activities include ice buckets being dumped, as well as pies in the faces of several staff members, local animal control officers and community members. Businesses donating more than $500 will get a Snuggle Express visit from shelter puppies or kittens to their workplace for staff to enjoy on a day of their choosing.

For more information about the event, follow Rotonda, Jordan’s Way and the GAHS Team on Facebook. The society’s fundraising goal for this virtual event is $15,000.
