We’re excited to share the results of the first month of the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge: In June alone, the Challengers saved a total of 21,175 animals’ lives! Competing shelters achieved this by adopting out or reuniting pets with their guardians. June’s impressive total was a combined increase of 4,311 over lives saved by the shelters during June 2013.
The Challengers started off on the right foot after a successful Challenge Kick-off Week June 1-8, and kept the momentum going throughout the month.
We’d like to congratulate the following shelters for saving most additional cats and dogs by the end of the first month of the Challenge in their respective divisions:
Division 1: Coastal Humane Society of Brunswick Maine
Division 4: Foothills Animal shelter of Golden, Colorado
Division 5: Central California SPCA of Fresno, California

The excitement has just begun! The Challengers have plenty of time to get creative and save even more animals’ lives during July and August. Stay tuned as the action unfolds during the remaining two months of the Challenge.
