GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Volunteers and team members are locked-in and in tents outside the Adoption Center at 910 S Washington St in an attempt to raise $1 million.

Their webpage reads: This unique event is not just about locking ourselves in; it’s about unlocking the potential to make a lasting impact on the lives of homeless pets and people in need. With the shared goal of raising $1 million, our dedicated animal shelter employees and passionate volunteers are ready to embark on an unforgettable adventure to ensure the continuity of vital programs. These programs include adoption initiatives, veterinary care for rescued animals, educational outreach, and support for individuals facing financial challenge. By rallying together in this lock-in, we are standing as a united force, offering a lifeline to those who cannot speak for themselves.
