As you can probably guess, we’re pretty big on shelter dogs. That’s why we’re thrilled that October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month (ASDM)!
Join us, along with co-hosts The Dodo (@dodo) and Domo (@domo), on Wednesday, October 15 from 7:00-8:00 P.M. EST to celebrate all things shelter dog during our ASDM Twitter Party and Giveaway!
This fun trivia contest will focus on famous dogs from pop culture (think Lassie and Rin Tin Tin) and we’ll be giving away prize packs every six minutes with a grand prize from Swiffer (@swiffer) and Alex and Ani (@alexandani)!
Don’t forget to RSVP here so you’ll be eligible to win prizes, and follow the hashtag #ASDMparty on Twitter to join the fun. See you there!
We’re excited to share the results of the first month of the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge: In June alone, the Challengers saved a total of 21,175 animals’ lives! Competing shelters achieved this by adopting out or reuniting pets with their guardians. June’s impressive total was a combined increase of 4,311 over lives saved by the shelters during June 2013.
The excitement has just begun! The Challengers have plenty of time to get creative and save even more animals’ lives during July and August. Stay tuned as the action unfolds during the remaining two months of the Challenge.
It’s no secret that ASPCA employees are crazy about animals, so why should our own pets be any exception? Every year, we create a beautiful wall calendar for our friends and supporters using our very own furry friends as models, and as you can imagine, the competition is pretty fierce!
Our 2015 calendar is almost complete, but there’s still one very important decision to make: Whose adorable adopted companion should grace this year’s cover?
We’ve narrowed it down to four contenders, and we need YOU to help us choose a winner. Check out the photos that are in the running, read a little about these sweet, adopted animals, and then cast your vote for our 2015 Cover Dog or Cat. The pet whose photo gets the most votes will have his or her face in homes all across America!
As the Challenge began on Sunday, June 1, all 50 shelters worked to host special adoption events throughout the week. From California to Maine, adopters visited local shelters to show their support for the Challenge and went home with furry best friends of all shapes and sizes.
But the excitement is just beginning! Now through the end of August, support your local Challenge shelter as the contestants compete to break their own adoption records and save the most animals over the same period in 2013.
What could be better than finding your life-long match? On the heels of Valentine’s Day, the ASPCA has teamed up with OkCupid and Draftfcb New York to help single pets find their perfect companions! Several of our adorable adoptable cats and dogs now have their very own profiles on the well-known dating site.
Each OkCupid pet profile incorporates our Meet Your Match® program which evaluates the animal’s personality and matches it to an adopter’s preferences.
If you're a member of OkCupid, keep your eyes out for our furry singles looking for love. If not, you can still check out the dating profiles of Karma, Bella, Mona and Florsheim. You’re not going to believe how cute they are!
Enter to Win a Pet Lovers Gift Pack! Already taken? Well, you can still help our adoptables find true love by entering our True Love contest. Visit our contest page to vote for your favorite pet, share their profile on your social networks and you’ll be automatically entered to win a special Pet Lovers Gift Pack!
Thanks for helping us make a love connection for these homeless pets.
