Thanks to 7,801 local animal lovers who took time to vote, Beaumont Animal Services won a spot in the 2012 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge and will now compete for a chance at more than $500,000 in grant funding, including a grand prize of $100,000.
The 2012 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. From August 1st, to October 31st, 2012, Beaumont Animal Services will compete to find homes for more cats and dogs than during the same period in 2011. Competing against 49 other shelters, the goal is to save at least 300 more animals.
“The staff of Beaumont Animal Services is so excited to take this next step in the competition and to see that so many people in the community are supporting us on this mission,” Matthew Fortenberry, Supervisor of Beaumont Animal Services, said. “This competition will not only save lives, but it will give all of our community a chance to get involved and have their voice heard for the animals.”
In the coming months, Beaumont Animal Services will be:
• Hosting special events and promotions during the Challenge
• Inviting the public to get involved and help come up with innovative ways to save lives!
