CLEARWATER – The Humane Society of Pinellas recently was named one of only 50 shelters in the country to compete in the 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge.
HSP is competing for a grand prize of $100,000, as well as various smaller prizes. In total, more than $600,000 in prizes will be awarded.
The 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge is a nationwide competition for animal shelters (and their communities) aimed at getting more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before.
“The ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge is a great opportunity for us,” said Sarah Brown, HSP executive director, in a press release. “It’s is going to be a lot of work and we’re going to need a lot of help from our community but we know we can do it. It will be worthwhile to get more animals into loving homes, and the money we hope to win will help us continue to save lives long after the challenge has ended.”
The challenge runs June through August. HSP’s goal is to adopt out 1,000 more pets than they did in the same period in 2012.
