We’re so excited: It’s almost time for the 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge! If you haven’t heard about the Challenge yet, here’s the deal: 50 animal shelters nationwide will soon be participating in this exciting three-month competition to save more animals’ lives. During last year's Challenge, competing shelters saved a cool 56,232 dogs and cats.

Challenge kick-off weekend is just a week away, and we hope you’re gearing up to help your favorite participating shelter take home the grand prize. Here are a few ways you can help the $100K Challenge get started with a bang:

1. Attend a kick-off event near you. Starting June 1, there will be $100K Challenge kick-off events at participating shelters nationwide, featuring animal adoptions, food, games and other festivities. To find out if there’s a kick-off event happening in your area, please check our Challenge events page.
2. Spread the word on Facebook! Click over to the ASPCA Facebook page to share our $100K Challenge shareable card with your friends, and encourage them to participate in kick-off weekend!
3. Don’t forget to Tweet.  You can follow #100KChallenge on Twitter to be part of all the minute-by-minute kick-off action. Join the conversation and help your favorite shelter find homes for even more animals!

We couldn’t be more excited to get the 2013 Challenge started. Thanks for supporting local shelters in this exciting competition, and for helping to save animals’ lives nationwide!
