Disclosure- I was given a prize pack mentioned below in exchange for hosting this giveaway. All opinions are 100% my own and I received no other compensation.
The ASPCA Rachael Ray 100K Challenge is an annual challenge in which animal shelters around the country compete to see who can save the most lives. This marks the fifth and final year of the competition. Since 2010, hundreds of contestants have dedicated themselves to this three month contest to increase their adoption numbers over the previous year. In this final year of the challenge, the competing shelters saved more than 68,000 lives in just three months! What an incredible achievement. This is more than twice the increases when they started in 2010.
In five years total, challengers saved more than a QUARTER OF A MILLION lives – an increase of nearly 60,000 cats and dogs – with dozens of animal shelters increasing their adoptions by 100% or more compared to previous years. How amazing is that?!?!
Adopting animals from local shelters is so important to my family. We adopted all of our pets from local shelters or as strays that were going to be brought to a shelter. I love hearing about all of these shelters working so hard to get so many animals loving adoptive forever homes. Congratulations to the 2014 Challenge winners and to all those who competed over the past five years. They all deserve a round of applause!
