2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge

Anyone who has been following this blog knows that we are strong supporters of dog and animal rescue!  The ASPCA recently contacted me to share the results of its recent challenge entitled, the “ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge.”  The $100K Challenge is a contest in which 50 shelters across the country competed their own records at saving animals’ lives.  Throughout the months of June, July, and August 2014, each competing shelter was required to save more dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens than each shelter previously did during the same three months during the preceding year in 2013.  A total of 68,000 animal (dog and cat) lives’ were saved during this challenge — an increase of 17,000 animals’ lives saved in 2013!

After three months, the ASPCA has concluded the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge and the winners were recently announced!  The ASPCA and Rachael Ray awarded grant prizes to 12 shelters who went above and beyond their duties, including:

$100K Grand Prize and Best in Division 5 Winner: Central California SPCA, Fresno, California

$25K Community Engagement Prize Winner: Kansas City Pet Project located in Kansas City, Missouri

Second Place Overall: City of Stockton Animal Services located in Stockton, California

Division 2 Winner: Clay County Animal Care and Control located in Green Cove Springs, Florida

Division 3 Winner: South Pines Animal Shelter located in Hattiesburg, Mississippi

A BIG THANK YOU to all the shelters who participated in this challenge and for each shelter’s continued commitment to help animals!
