Welcome to the Shelter Challenge, where you help decide which shelters win more than 240 prizes. Your involvement is everything for your shelters. You have the power to spread the word to friends and family that have never heard of your shelter, to share your rescue story and enter your shelter for one of nine story prizes, and most importantly, to vote every day. It adds up. $100,000 in monetary grants will be distributed to eligible winners, plus additional prizes of vaccinations and pet beds.
Note: The results charts update on a regular basis. Final results are audited and verified at the end of voting for each contest.
