Exciting News for Shelter Pets! Announcing the Winner of our "Feed a Shelter" Contest

Throughout the month of November, we asked you to share why you love your local shelter and the impact it has made on your community in our ASPCA “Feed a Shelter” contest with Freekibble.com.

We received hundreds of heartwarming submissions from readers across the country. While it was extremely difficult to select just one shelter, we are pleased to announce Pima Animal Care Center as our 2014 contest winner! Freekibble.com will deliver 10,000 free meals of Halo Spot’s Stew to Pima Animal Care Center in Tucson, Arizona.

This special shelter received multiple nominations which highlighted the organization’s compassionate care for animals, support of public safety and work to educate the community about responsible pet ownership that has allowed them to save more animals’ lives.

“It is an amazing honor,” says Karen Hollish, Development Director at Pima Animal Care Center. “As a shelter that never turns away a pet in need, our resources often fall short of the demand. This generous food donation will help us put our limited dollars toward other key areas like medical care for sick and injured pets. Thank you so much!”

Congratulations to Pima Animal Care Center! We’d also like to extend a huge thank you to all of you that recognized the hard work of your local shelters by participating in our contest.
