The contestants of the ASPCA $100K Challenge are off and running! We recently caught up with four more agencies that’ll be rocking out over the next three months in order to save more cats and dogs and win $100K.
Richmond Animal Care & Control, Richmond, VA: The folks at Richmond Animal Care & Control really know how to work the grassroots grapevine to get the word out. If they take home the top prize, they’ll use the funds to increase adoptions and improve conditions for Richmond’s four-legged residents.
Wisconsin Humane Society, Milwaukee, WI: With 130 years of experience under its belt, the Wisconsin Humane Society has a passionate and compassionate group of staff members, volunteers, adopters and donors. This shelter is approaching the Challenge with a “buzz blitz” to entice potential pet parents and drive up adoptions.
City of Irvine Animal Care Center, Irvine, CA: A motivated municipal shelter that adopts out more than 4,500 animals every year, Irvine Animal Care Center goes above and beyond with its Third Chance for Pets program. With an innovative and successful approach, this organization is sure to be a frontrunner.
NOAH Animal Adoption & Spay/Neuter Center, Stanwood, WA: “Helping Pets Succeed” is the driving force of NOAH, a transfer-in only facility north of Seattle. This organization finds homes for those animals who are hardest to place, and succeeds with forward-thinking programs to save more animals’ lives.
