The Waterford-East Lyme Animal Shelter, , needs your help. Several concerned residents have formed a committee on the issue, but the town has made it clear: .

Well, the animal shelter has that opportunity, but it needs your help. Readers Digest is running a contest called “We Hear You America” where $5 million is handed out to 20 different towns, each receiving anywhere from $35,000 to $500.

To play, click here and cheer for Waterford. Each person can cheer up to 10 times each day.

As of 2:00 p.m. today, Waterford has received 40,782 cheers, good for 47th place. Currently, the leader has just over 1 million cheers. However, with everybody voting 10 times a day, that gap could be overcome.

The voting ends Feb. 7, so cheer and cheer often. It’s a totally free way to help your town (and all your pets) get something it really needs.

Waterford Patch. Com Thank you so much for putting this on your front page., Just remember this when voting, we in Waterford, need to know that in a lot of places in front of us, are counties. In that venue then have many towns that vote for what they want. We stand alone in this endeavor. We win or loose, it does not matter, what matter is the fight for first place. And I know we can win this. Jeff Watterson
