$600,000 in prize grants
and more than 20 ways to win between $5,000 and $100,000!
Since 2010, hundreds of shelters across the country have used the $100K Challenge to inspire great teamwork, innovate new approaches, rally community support, and save thousands more lives.
2014 will be the final run of this national contest to save more lives. Fifty shelters with a minimum cat and dog annual intake of 1,500 will compete for some of the $600,000 in prize grants by increasing lives saved in June, July and August 2014 over their own numbers for June, July and August 2013. The shelter with the biggest increase in lives saved will win the grand prize: $100,000.
Fifty shelters total, competing in one of five divisions against agencies of similar size. Qualified applications accepted on a first come, first served basis beginning at 3pm ET January 6, 2014.
