It’s finally here! After months of preparation and anticipation, it’s time for the 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. During this exciting three-month competition, from June 1 to August 31, 49 shelters nationwide will compete to break their own adoption records and save the most animals over the same period in 2012. Winners and finalists will earn prize grants, ranging from $5,000 to $100,000, so they can save even more animals in the future.

We’re getting the party started with $100K Challenge kick-off weekend this Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2. Participating shelters will host exciting adoption events all weekend long, featuring food, games and plenty of adorable, adoptable animals. Support your local competing shelter by attending a kick-off weekend event. Who knows? You might even bring home a furry new addition to your family. Please visit our events page to find out what’s happening in your area!
