Thursday, January 17, 2013 - 1:00pm

We could not be more excited to announce and congratulate the contestants of the 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge! From coast to coast, all 50 animal shelters are sure to engage in a friendly, fierce and exciting competition to save the most animals’ lives over the course of the Challenge. The shelters will compete to win prizes in the form of ASPCA grant funding, ranging from $5,000 to a grand prize of $100,000 for the Challenge’s top performing shelter.

The bar for these contestants has been set high: The 2012 Challenge contestants saved a collective total of 56,232 animals during the three-month competition.

Stay tuned for continuing coverage of this year’s Challenge. The participating shelters will host Challenge Kickoff Weekend events June 1-2. We know they’ll be hard at work preparing between now and then!

Has this dog been adopted and if not where is he or she and is he or she adoptable??
Please let me know!!!


Why is there not 1 Shelter in this challenge from New York? Makes absolutely no sense. These People work hard and take in hundreds of thousands of animals - it is disgraceful that not one rescue organization has been included from NYC or even NY State

I think this is a BAD IDEA! People have only just gotten used to screening potential adopters to make sure animals are going to safe homes. With this contest, someone will cut corners to make the necessary adoptions, and some pet will end up in a worse situation, instead of a better one.


Wow that is one talented pup and an abused animal can win!


I think that it is a good thing that they are doing because people will feel absolutely tempted to buy.

WHO picks these contestants??? They certainly didn't do their homework--at least the one from my state! OMG!!!

Unfortunately I can't donate at this time. I always cry when I see your commercials. I adopted a terrier mix from Laredo, TX and loving him more every day. His name is Scruffy.
