Local Baseball Pro Issues Challenge to the Animal Rescue League of Berks County

LA Dodgers pitcher and Berks County native Chad Billingsley, along with his wife Tiffany, have once again partnered with the Animal Rescue League of Berks County by issuing a challenge to reach a goal of 2000 adoptions by November 1st. The Billingsleys will donate $20 for EVERY adoption from March 1st November 1st and the ARL hopes not only to meet the goal, but to exceed it.

The ARLs Director of Marketing, Beth Ireland says, The Billingsleys generous offer to donate $20 per adoption in the coming months challenges the ARL to offer imaginative adoption promotions to the community. These promotions will increase the spotlight on our adoptables as well as increase awareness of our shelter which will result in increased traffic and more adoptions.

Over the next nine months, the ARL will offer monthly adoption promotions, creative flash adoption drives, and the public can expect to see the ARLs adoptables promoted more frequently on social media.

The ARL is offering the public a chance to Join Team Billingsley by matching one of Chad & Tiffanys $20 donations.


In the years since Chad & Tiffany have partnered with us, weve found that the public is inspired by their generosity and looks for ways to get involved. Offering this matching option at such a low price point will allow more of our community to participate in reaching this lofty goal. If we are able to complete 2000 adoptions and find a match for each of the Billingsleys $20 donations, this campaign will raise a total of $80,000 for the homeless pets of Berks County, not to mention, ensure loving homes for 2000 animals in the process. Thats a campaign that Berks County can be proud of comments Director of Development, Ashley Mikulsky

Every person who matches a donation will be entered to win a pair of tickets to the ARLs annual Gala on November 1st. Multiple donations equal multiple chances to win. More information can be found at www.BerksARL.org/Join-Team-Billingsley.

Chad and Tiffany Billingsley were first introduced to the ARL by friend and ARL board member Kathy Hiester in 2011. Since then they have donated more than $65,000 to the organization.
