Rachael Ray’s $100K Challenge is three weeks away from the finish line, so it’s crunch time! Since October is also National “Adopt a Shelter Dog” month, we want you to help as many animals in struggling shelters as possible!
In August and September alone, the contestants have saved a whopping 36,017 animals, an 8,000 animal increase from last year over the same two months-how amazing is that?!
Check out a few of these super fun ways to help animals in need & get involved today:
- Vote for your favorite/local shelter - Voting is now officially open! Applicants have been duking it out for the top spot since April and you can help your shelter by voting right here.
- Adopt a pet - Not only will this put your shelter one step closer to the grand prize but you’ll have a furry friend that you and your family can spoil and love during the holidays! Check out the leaderboard here for how many animal lives have been saved at each shelter.
- Spread the word - Rally around your local shelter and get your community hyped up about the $100K prize! Head over to Twitter and check out hashtag #ASPCA100K or Facebook at http://www.aspca.org/Adoption/100k.
