Animal Foundation Wins Grand Prize in Shelter Competition

The Animal Foundation was awarded the $100,000 grand prize and named best in its division in a challenge sponsored by Food Network star Rachel Ray and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The three-month competition invited 49 animal shelters around the country to compete for a piece of $600,000 in prize money and the $100,000 grand prize by increasing the number of adoptions.

During June, July and August, the competing shelters worked to save more than 12,000 more animals than they did over the same three-month period last year. In all, the shelters saved the lives of more than 56,000 animals.
