Alt 101.9 FM radio personality lives in animal shelter to raise donations
Radio personality Lindsey Armstrong with Alt 101.9 FM is voluntarily living at the Humane Society of Utah (HSU) located at 4242 S. 300 W. in Murray, Utah, until she raises a set goal of $3,000 in physical and monetary donations for shelter animals. This donation-based “adoption fee” to adopt a DJ benefits the Humane Society of Utah homeless animals 100 percent. Lindsey is sleeping inside a Kitty City cat villa among the shelter cats and broadcasting live from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day to encourage donations.
“We’re grateful to Lindsey for sacrificing her time to help our animals,” said Deann Shepherd, HSU representative. “She approached us and offered to do this event because she cares so much about the animals here. She’s donating her time to promote our services and adoptable pets, and we thank her for that.”
Lindsey plans to stay at the shelter until enough donations are received. Online donations may be made through the Alt 101.9 and HSU websites, or visitors are welcome to bring items in and meet Lindsey in person.
Items currently needed by HSU include kitten and puppy milk replacement formula, wet and dry kitten and puppy food, cat litter, stainless steel food and water bowls, blankets and pet toys.
The public can view Lindsey’s living arrangements in Kitty City through the shelter’s iPet Companion system, a live Internet-based camera and interactive cat toy system found at utahhumane.org/adoptadj.
