Animal welfare adoption challenge

The 2013 American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) challenge has invited shelters from across the USA to innovate and accelerate their adoptions programmes...

Animal welfare charities are competing for a slice of up to 600,000 USD in prize money...

The charity says more than 36,000 pets have already been saved in the first two months of the annual challenge...



Last year's challenge saw shelters save over 56,000 cats and dogs, an increase of 14,376 on the 2011 effort.

This year organisers hope shelters and the public will respond to the adoptions call and improve on the success of 2012...

"If you're thinking about making a pet a part of your family there's no better time than right now..." says Bert Troughton, Community Outreach at the ASPCA...

The 2013 competition in conjunction with Rachael Ray, that runs until the end of August... calls on animal shelters to work to increase adoptions in order to win a share of 600,000 USD in prize grants, including a major prize of $100,000...

ASPCA says by launching promotions and discounts, holding adoption events, etc... 49 shelters that are participating have already helped to boost their adoptions of dogs and cats...

Prizes include the shelter that does the best job of engaging community members in helping to save more animals ($25,000)...

Animal welfare shelters taking part include Western Arizona Humane Society, Lake Havasu City; Canyon County Animal Shelter in Caldwell, Idaho and Citizens for Animal Protection in Houston, Texas...
