Time flies when you’re having fun: Competing shelters in the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge are nearing the finish line, and we couldn’t be more excited to share that in June and July, the Challengers saved a total of 43,959 animals’ lives! The Challenge shelters achieved this by adopting out or reuniting pets with their guardians—and they saved over 9,000 more lives than during the same two months last year.

We’d like to congratulate the shelters in each division that saved the most additional cats and dogs by the end of the first two months of the Challenge:

Coastal Humane Society (Brunswick, ME) in Division 1

Clay County Animal Care and Control (Green Cove Springs, FL) in Division 2

Southern Pines Animal Shelter (Hattiesburg, MS) in Division 3

Foothills Animal Shelter (Golden, CO) in Division 4

Central California SPCA (Fresno, CA) in Division 5

The Challengers still have two weeks to pull out all the stops and take home the grand prize! Stay tuned as the action unfolds, and we’ll reveal the big winner on October 7.
