PRIOR LAKE, Minn. (July 3, 2024) Spot’s Last Stop is the winning organization of up to $1 Million. Prior Lake Rotary Club, producers of Lakefront Music Fest, announced Wednesday morning at their weekly club meeting. Signature Project is funded by proceeds raised at Lakefront Music Fest and the money is being awarded to Spot’s Last Stop on the basis of making sustainable, lasting improvements to the Prior Lake community.
The Prior Lake area does not currently have a local animal control shelter. Having a permanent facility would greatly improve handling of animal welfare cases, those involving neglect, strays and lost pets. Building a permanent facility would benefit local residents by allowing them to meet and receive resources in training and socialization of surrendered animals, along with being assured that lost pets would receive humane care. Started in 2015, Spot's Last Stop has a proven track record having coordinated the adoption of approximately 8,000 animals locally and in surrounding communities.
“It’s an absolute honor to award the Signature Project funding to Spot’s Last Stop.” said Laurie Hartmann, Signature Project Chairperson. “They represent the key aspects of our objectives with this project and we are confident their efforts will be a significant positive impact to our community.”
The Signature Project identified specific areas of focus which set the standard for potential organizations selected as finalists. Organizations went through a detailed application process that started nearly 2 years ago.
