Moreno Valley Animal Shelter to Compete in
2013 $100K Rachael Ray Challenge

The Moreno Valley Animal Shelter has been selected to join 49 other Animal Shelters nationwide to participate in the 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge competing to save more lives from June 1st through August 31st.

The $100K Challenge is a contest in which 50 shelters across the country will compete to break their own records at saving animals' lives. Throughout the months of June, July and August 2013, each competing shelter must save more dogs, cats, puppies and kittens than they did during the same three months in 2012.

In 2013, 50 shelters will save even more lives, with winners earning $600,000 in prize grants, including a $100,000 grand prize for the shelter that increases lives saved the most.

The ASPCA wants Animal Shelters across the country to save more lives! An estimated 3 to 4 million animals die in shelters every year. The ASPCA is tapping the shoulders of Animal Shelter professionals across the country to challenge them to become more innovative in saving more lives. The 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge is a spirited competition that energizes staff and volunteers and helps to engage communities in life saving work.

The Moreno Valley Animal Shelter is excited to be a 2013 participant and we are asking the community for its support during this important 3 month long event. The Moreno Valley Animal Shelter is already putting together plans on ways to increase pet adoptions, not only during the 2013 $100K Challenge but throughout 2013.

This pet adoption campaign provides an excellent opportunity for community members to volunteer their talents and services in helping the lives of many unwanted and abandoned pets find a second chance of finding a life-long loving home. Volunteer applications are available on-line at under the Animal Shelter webpage. Applications will be accepted in person at the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter and during the next volunteer orientation scheduled on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
