SAVED: 8,390 More Lives After Month 2 of the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge!
How do you like them digits? After just 60 days of competition, a total of 36,017 dogs and cats have been adopted or reunited with their owners by the 50 competing agencies—a combined increase of 8,390 over August and September 2011.
Q. Why is this clinic assistant at Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode so happy? A. Because she just finished deleting all the animals who'd been adopted that day from their Petfinder page! She's got plenty of reasons to smile, as the California agency is currently ranked #2 overall—and #1 in the West division.

It takes the support of the entire community to rock the Challenge. The employees and customers of NorthStar Bank recently donated 3 carloads of supplies to Denton Animal Shelter Foundation, currently ranked #5 on the leaderboard after Month 2.
And yes, we mean the support of the entire community... even the four-legged members. Doggy mom Delilah gives a snuggle to one of 4 orphaned puppies she is helping foster for SICSA, currently #10 on the leaderboard. Awwww...
Young Zeke, who organized a donation drive for City of San Antonio Animal Care Services, gives his favorite shelter a thumbs up—and so do we! The Texas agency snagged the #1 spot on the leaderboard with a 2-month increase of 783 lives saved over last year.
Recently Humane Society of Charlotte, currently leading the Southeast division and ranking #6 overall, had a great reason to celebrate—they reached their Challenge adoption goal! And of course, there's still another month to go...
A special shout-out to our division leaders after Month 2—City of San Antonio Animal Care Services (South Central); Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode (West); Humane Society of Charlotte (Southeast); Toledo Area Humane Society (North Central), and Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center (Northeast)—and big kudos to all the competitors… you’re kicking major butt. Best of luck to all in the final weeks of the $100K Challenge.
