We are very pleased to announce the six winners of the ASPCA $100K Challenge Photo & Story Contest! With nearly 9,000 votes cast, it was a tough race, but whether they represent fosters, adoptions, volunteers or RTOs (return-to-owners), the winning entries all embody the very essence of this Challenge. For never losing faith in the end goal to save more lives and inspire others to do the same, these six submissions secured $1,000 grants—and our deep appreciation—for their local Challengers.
