As you might already know, Miss Do-Gooder is an ardent supporter of any and all animal-related charities, be they big, small, local, national, rescues, shelters, foster and/or adoption activists. If it saves or helps prevent cruelty toward animals, she digs it. So when she heard that the ASPCA just launched its “$100K Challenge” (which awards more than the name suggests; it’s actually worth $125,000 in prizes, go figure), it was important to our diminutive superhero to spread the good word.
If you know of a shelter in your area that's doing extraordinary things to promote the saving of animals' lives, please click here. In order to qualify for this particular award, a shelter must save a minimum of 300 more cats, dogs, kittens and puppies from August through October, 2010, compared with the same three-month period last year. The ASPCA will also grant $25,000 to the shelter that most inspires and engages members of its community to get involved with the promotion of adoptions and reuniting lost pets with their parents (e.g. micro-chipping).
You’ve got until June 30 to nominate your favorite shelter, but please act quickly because the Challenge is limited to 50 shelters - and as you probably know, there are thousands of worthy shelters across the US.
