RIVALRY BETWEEN WISCONSIN AND ILLINOIS HAS GONE TO THE DOGS…AND CATS!
Brookfield, WI – The epic battle between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears has polarized our residents, and now our best friends are getting into the rivalry! This Sunday, the Elmbrook Humane Society in Brookfield, WI. and The Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago, IL. are betting high humiliation stakes on their respective home teams!
Aside from the inherent rivalry between our fair states and citizenry, this weekend the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears, will be fighting it out, not only for the title of 2011 NFC Champion and the opportunity to perform at Superbowl XLV, but to settle the age-old question – Wisconsin vs. Illinois.
In the spirit of the occasion, Elmbrook Humane Society and Executive Director, Karen Sparapani, has challenged The Anti-Cruelty Society and their President, Robyn Barbiers, to a fierce “Shelter Showdown”.
If the Green Bay Packers win on Sunday, Anti-Cruelty Society President, Robyn Barbiers, will be forced to dress herself in a Packers jersey! On the flip side, if the Packers fall prey to the Chicago Bears, Elmbrook Humane Society Executive Director, Karen Sparapani, will throw on an orange and navy blue Bears jersey.
There’s more than a football game to lose this weekend, each organization will be watching the NFC Championship game and hoping their team walks away with the “W”! Good luck and game on!
Elmbrook Humane Society is also collecting dog-safe teddy bear toys to represent their division rivals. The teddy bears will be used as dog toys for the homeless animals in need at the Elmbrook Humane Society.
Elmbrook Humane Society (EBHS) is a non-profit animal shelter that provides temporary refuge for stray, homeless and deserted animals from all over Wisconsin, until we find them new, permanent homes. EBHS is Waukesha County’s only adoption guarantee facility.
The Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago is the oldest and largest animal welfare organization. The Anti-Cruelty Society is building a community of caring by helping pets and educating people through our comprehensive programs and services.
