After much anticipation, we’re thrilled to announce the contestants of the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge! This year’s Challenge will be the fifth and final competition of its kind. From June through the end of August, 50 animal shelters in 24 states will engage in a spirited competition to save more animals’ lives than they did during the same three months in 2013. The shelters will compete to win a total of $600,000 in ASPCA grant funding, with prizes ranging from $1,000 to a grand prize of $100,000 for the Challenge’s top performing shelter.

The bar for these contestants has been set high: 2013 Challenge contestants saved a collective total of 56,379 animals during the exciting three-month competition.

Stay tuned for continuing coverage of this year’s Challenge. The competing shelters will host Challenge Kickoff Week events June 1-7, and we know they’ll be working hard to prepare between now and then.
