Help your local shelter win $100,000 and help more animals find homes

The ASPCA is sponsoring a three-month competition which challenges 49 shelters from 33 states and territories across the United States to increase lives saved in order to win some of the $300,000 in ASPCA prize grants, including a grand prize of $100,000. Shelters have one more month to save more animals for a chance to win much-needed funds.

During the first weeks of the challeng, many shelters stayed open around the clock for 24-hour adoption events, offered unique promotions and discounts on adoption fees, and more.

The shelter with the largest increase in animals saved will win a $100,000 grant. The agency that gets the most community members involved in saving animals will win a $25,000 grant, and those organizations that do the best in their regions will be eligible for between $5,000 and $25,000 in grants.
