CAP recently won Division Four of the 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge! CAP facilitated 1,807 adoptions over the summer, the 625 adoption increase from last year securing the win. A big thank you to our staff, volunteers, donors, and of course, adoptive families who made this possible!
Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) wins Division Four of the 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. CAP found homes for 1,807 pets during the three-month competition, an increase of 625 lives saved over the same three months last year.
CAP won four categories throughout the three-month competition this summer, winning a total of $40,000: $25,000 in their Division, $5,000 Fast Track Winner - first month for most animals adopted in their division, $5,000 - Seventh Inning Stretch Winner for winning the second month and $5,000 - Completing the Challenge by adopting the minimum required, 300 lives saved.
"There were 49 other organizations across the country participating in this Challenge. The winner shelters 1200+ animals a day so for CAP to win our division and be 4th in the country against some really big organizations, really is a huge achievement. The topping on the cake is that we SAVED 625 MORE LIVES than the same period last year!," said JoAnne Jackson, Director of Operations, for CAP.
During the next six months, CAP will be using the funds from the ASPCA grant to hold more adoption events and place even more homeless pets with new, forever families.
