Residence halls raise more than $200 for ARF

Three animals found new homes after Ball State's residence halls raised more than $200 for the Animal Rescue Fund.

Alice, Steve and Humphrey were able to be placed in homes in Muncie, according to a press release.

The winning hall was DeHority Complex, which raised $69.18. The third floor of DeHority raised the most money with a total of $25.82. LaFollette Complex's Shively Hall came in second place with $22.24, raised in pennies and other change according to the press release.

Phil Peckinpaugh, ARF director, said in the press release that ARF finds homes for about 100 animals each month, but the number may soon increase because of the holiday season. He didn't know if the recent adoptions were a result of the penny wars, but it is a possiblity.

The original goal was to raise $2,000 for the fund, but Peckinpaugh said it was all about finding homes for animals.


The press release said the shelter is planning a similar contest for next semester called "Pennies for Pups" to continue raising awareness of ARF.
