Description:

You may have seen him on the Dodo or the Hallmark Channel sharing his passion for unwanted animals in hopes of pet adoption. Kris Rotonda’s own favorite pal, Jordan, was adopted from an animal shelter after having been there for three years. When she passed away in 2018 after a battle with cancer, Kris vowed to raise as much awareness and funds for animal shelters across the country, creating the Jordan’s Way organization. Now, Kris is going on a 50-state tour visiting a few animal shelters in each state and going live on Facebook performing crazy challenges to draw attention to the amazing pets up for adoption at each shelter.

The Humane Society of Southeast Missouri is one of the three selected for the state of Missouri! Tuesday, January 19th starting at 5 PM, Kris will be live on Facebook at the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri getting inside the dog kennels where he will perform some interesting challenges to help the shelter raise funds and awareness.

In addition to the outrageous challenges performed by Kris, there will be a few more opportunities to laugh and engage all via Facebook live.

  • Mayor Bob Fox and City Councilman Robbie Guard will take a pie in the face throughout the evening,
  • Humane Society of Southeast Missouri Board Chair, Charlotte Craig, promised to dye her hair purple and blue as fundraising goals are met,
  • A local Naval officer, a local fiddle player, and an instrumental group comprised of area kids will all perform,
  • Author Randy Barnhouse – who wrote Dear Samuel Clemens: Message in a Bottle – will be live throughout the evening,
  • Mississippi Mutts owners will also sport the “pie in the face” fun,
  • And more!

All funds raised go to support the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri.
