Humane Society of Boulder Valley saved 2,640 dogs and cats and won a $100,000 grant in the ASPCA $100K Challenge.

Today is the day, people! The grand prize winner of the ASPCA $100K Challenge is…Humane Society of Boulder Valley in Boulder, CO! Boulder Valley saved a total of 2,640 animals—an increase of 968 lives saved over the same time period in 2009—and will receive a $100,000 grant to continue its life-saving work.

The $100K Challenge is a national contest designed to inspire animal shelters across the country to save more lives. Since the Challenge first launched in April, we’ve been inspired every day by the amazing feats of our contestants, who worked to save at least 300 more animals during the months of August, September and October 2010 than they did during the same months in 2009. Total lives saved: 48,779 in three months—7,362 MORE animals than last year!

Many thanks to all staff, volunteers and YOU, the public, for making the Challenge happen and for working every day to save more lives! Please see our leaderboard for the final, awe-inspiring numbers, and stay tuned next week for reports from our grand prize party in Boulder!
