About the 2013 Challenge

Save More Lives by Competing in the Challenge!

The $100K Challenge is a contest in which 50 shelters across the country will compete to break their own records at saving animals' lives. Throughout the months of June, July and August 2013, each competing shelter must save more dogs, cats, puppies and kittens than they did during the same three months in 2012.

For the past three years, shelters across the country have used the $100K Challenge to energize their teams, rally their communities and blast through their previous records for saving lives. In 2010, competing shelters achieved a 7,362 increase in lives saved and in 2011, the numbers climbed higher when contestants increased lives saved by an incredible 8,977.  In 2012, contestants soared way ahead of their fellow competitors from prior years with an increase in lives saved of 14,376.

In 2013, 50 shelters will save even more lives, with winners earning $600,000 in prize grants, including a $100,000 grand prize for the shelter that increases lives saved the most. Qualified applicants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis beginning on January 3rd.
