Win $15,000 for Your Shelter in "America's Favorite Animal Shelter" Contest


Vote for your favorite shelter in "America's Favorite Animal Shelter" contest--sponsored by Care2, ASPCA and Adopt-a-Pet--and you can help it win $15,000!

Imagine what your shelter could do with $15,000--everything from a much-needed renovation, to purchasing essential cat and dog supplies, to assisting more rescues, the list goes on.

My favorite shelter is the Jersey Animal Coalition in South Orange, NJ, where I volunteer as a cat-socializer. I know $15,000 will be invaluable to the Coalition's no-kill mission. The donation will go far in helping rescue cats like my pal, Harley, who loves to chase a ball and greets me with a purr and a smile.

Winners of the Contest
The winner of the contest will be determined by the shelter with the most votes. In addition to the grand prize, Care2 is awarding $7,000 and $3,000 to the runner-ups.

All Shelters Have the Opportunity to Win
To ensure all shelters have a chance to win, Care2 will also award $500 to a randomly picked shelter for each of the 8 weeks of the contest.

How to Enter
It's easy and free to enter the contest. You can go to Care2 and find your favorite shelter. In order to be eligible to participate, all shelters and groups need to be registered with Adopt-a-Pet.com, a non-profit pet adoption site. The contest ends July 10, 2011.

  3. Thanks for the tip, Ann!! I am going to vote for my local shelter. They're trying to raise $$ to build a new facility, and could really use the money!
