Welcome to 2014!
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!
