The Next Shelter Challenge Starts January 6, 2014!

Welcome to 2014! Voting Starts January 6th!

 

GreaterGood, The Animal Rescue Site, and GreaterGood.org are excited to ring in 2014 with the new 2014 Celebrations Shelter Challenge.  We’ll be giving away 244 prizes, worth a total of more than $100,000, including monetary grants, vaccinations, and pet beds, to eligible shelters in the U.S. and around the world. 

 

In addition to voting every day, you can support your shelter in a number of ways.  Recruiting more people to vote can really make a huge difference in how far your shelter can go up in the ranks, and there are some great recruiting prizes available for shelters.  Simply sharing the contest through Facebook and email also makes a pretty big difference.  Shelters may have a tough time getting the word out on their own — this is an area where your help not only benefits your shelter in the Shelter Challenge, but also increases awareness in the community.

 

We will also feature four special rescue story contests during this Shelter Challenge.  Share your favorite rescue story, and if it is selected as a finalist, your shelter could win a $1,000 grant!   Each story contest will have a theme.  Remember to keep your entry positive, and take the time to let your photo load all the way before saving.

 

The 2014 Celebrations Shelter Challenge begins on January 6th, 2014.  We hope you’ll join us to support your shelter, and we wish everyone — humans and animals alike — a very happy New Year!

Friends For Life Animal Shelter and Sanctuary out of Houston, TX (NoKill1.org) is a nonprofit ALL animal shelter. While I favor cats and dogs -except when it's raining - ;-) - this shelter has housed even birds, squirrels, and who knows what else!! They have personally helped me with three stray kittens in the past! Please vote for Friends For Life!!

I vote for ARME every day, they do such a wonderful thing, I'm impressed with them, wish more people would vote for them and get them to the top prize. ARME - keep up the great work and save those Beagles! I've had three at one time, two were rescues though not from labs, but they are the sweetest dogs I've ever met. Of course all three have been spayed/neutered.

I have been trying for 10 minutes to spread the word so that my FB friends vote for my favorite shelter. But to no avail. Clicking the links to ask for votes from FB Friends only puts me onto a go -nowhere, circular path with same results: you have already voted today. Yes, I realize that and had been attempting to enlist others to vote for a local shelter.
