On June 21, 2013, Cope Animal Rescue will be holding a fundraiser at Grundy County Speedway.  COPE Animal Rescue is a no-kill, all volunteer, not-for-profit animal shelter. COPE is 100% volunteer managed and operated.   All funds provided go towards the medical care, spay and neutering and daily care until the pet is adopted into a forever home.

We are asking our Racing family to please help out by donating a dog/cat canned food item on June 21, 2013. COPE will have baskets behind the grandstands (and at John McMahon’s Midam No. 01 trailer or stop Kerrie Nelms if you see her) to drop off your canned item.  Also, behind the grandstands COPE will be selling magnets and many other items.  A 50/50 drawing will be taking place also.  There will be 2 people walking around in the stands and pit areas selling tickets.  Donations are always welcome as well and very much appreciated.
Please help out animals in need.
Fundraising meetings: 
COPE has a fundraising meetings approximately once a month.  At present we are meeting at the Pizza Hut on Route 30.  We are always looking for new ideas and at the same time working on  fundraisers that we are already planning.   Everyone is invited.  If you have new ideas or would like to work on a project that we already are implementing, please join us.   Please come if you are interested.   Call or email and let us know you would like to be notified  of the future meetings.   Lois (815)474-5204
