For the next three months, fifty U.S. animal shelters will compete for a $100,000 grant in The ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. (Twitter hashtag #100KChallenge) The object is to save more animals' lives by increasing their adoption numbers over the same period last year. Other contestants will vie for a chance to win some of almost $500,000 in additional grant prizes.

Many shelter contestants are hosting large kick-off adoption events this weekend. Good luck, shelters – and pets!
