Games mean money for shelters

Friday, April 4, 2003

Furry, Fuzzy, Fun'raisers Fundraising is a new game for Indiana animal shelters.

Late for the Sky Production Company's DOG-OPOLY and CAT-OPOLY games made a dramatic change in the fundraising ability of animal protection and preservation organizations last year. Just since August of 2002, nine societies alone have raised approximately $55,200 for the benefit of animals by selling Dog-opoly and Cat-opoly board games as fundraisers.

One group, Animal Rescue Fund in Muncie, IN says, "[We are] grateful beyond words.. .truly fantastic.. .thank you, thank you thank you.. .we were having a terrible time raising money for our non-profit organization.. .several of our past fundraisers were failures. But the games came along at the perfect time. They are wonderful. Thanks for saving the Rescue and the lives of many animals!"

All over the state shelters, including Clay County Humane Society in Brazil, are saying the same thing!

Late for the Sky President, Robyn Wilson says about the impetus for this game, "We love animals and thought it only natural to create these games out of that love. We knew they would make pet-lovers everywhere happy, but we had no idea they would bring so much good to the world - to animals and people alike!"

DOG-OPOLY is a game based on our fabulous four-legged friends. It has all the fun of a traditional property trading game with some dog-eat-dog twists. Dogs are arranged on the board in size from Chihuahua to Great Dane. Each Dog Deed is filled with fun facts about the dog. When playing the game you can choose to be the mailman, cat, flea, T-bone, fire hydrant, or the dish with a bone in it! Trade your dog houses in for a big bone and you'll be the big winner in Dog-opoly! CAT-OPOLY features fun stuff including fish bones, sardines, fish, cat food, ball of yarn, bottle of milk, and a mouse! Trade in your litter box for your Big Fish and learn a little about cats as you go along! This game is a feline frenzy of fun!

Late for the Sky was launched in 1984 with five employees and one game, MIAMIOPOLY. Today, nearly 18 years, one hundred and eight games, and more than 30 employees later, we are booming in Oakley of Cincinnati, Ohio.
