HALO Animal Rescue won Division Three of the 2013 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. HALO found homes for 2,039 pets during the three-month competition, an increase of 824 lives saved over the same three months last year, and was awarded a total of $45,000 in grant funding from the ASPCA and Rachael Ray.
“The pace at which HALO Animal Rescue met so many huge milestone numbers during the contest floored us,” said Bert Troughton, vice president of community outreach for the ASPCA. “In just the first month, they found homes for close to 600 cats and dogs and they more than tripled that by the end of this grueling three-month competition, saving more than 2,000 lives this summer.”
Forty-nine shelter contestants worked to save more animals during the months of June, July and August 2013. This year’s competing shelters saved 56,379 cats and dogs during the contest.
