The Numbers Are In!

This past weekend, thousands of you joined us on Twitter to watch as shelters from across the nation held special adoption events to kick-off the 2011 ASPCA $100K Challenge. Well, folks, the numbers are in…and we can’t wait to share them. In total, more than 3,000 shelter pets went home!

“It was such an incredible start,” says Bert Troughton, ASPCA Vice President of Community Outreach. “Many of these shelters shattered their own adoption records, and in so doing they shattered the perception of what’s possible.”

Shelters rallied, communities rallied, volunteers rallied…and thousands of animals’ lives were saved. A special thanks to all who joined us on Twitter—they couldn’t have done it without you!
