The Marin Humane Society is the only Bay Area shelter competing in the 2012 Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. Vote every day from April 5 to 16.

The needs your support in the 2012 $100K Rachael Ray Challenge for a chance to win more than $500,000 in grant funding, including a grand prize of $100,000, and save the lives of hundreds of animals in the Bay Area. Please vote online at VoteToSaveLives.org every day from April 5 to 16.

The 2012 Rachael Ray $100K Challenge is a nationwide competition for animal shelters (and their communities) aimed at getting more animals adopted or returned to their guardians than ever before. MHS is the only animal shelter that has been selected to participate from the Bay Area.

This first phase is the qualifying heat where eligible shelters compete to accumulate the most online votes from their supporters. The only way to support the Marin Humane Society and Bay Area animals is by voting online every day at VoteToSaveLives.org from April 5-16. You can also access the voting site and set up an automated daily reminder email here.

MHS CEO Nancy McKenney says she is thrilled to be part of the $100K Challenge.

“Your votes could help us fund important work for animals," she says. "Working together, we would like to increase the number of spay and neuter surgeries performed, especially in our communities with lower income; and we would like to develop a robust adoption outreach program so animals have increased visibility throughout Marin County. We are committed to saving more lives and by doing so win the $100K Challenge.”

The 50 shelters with the most votes become the official contestants for the 2012 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge and go on to compete for more than $500,000 in grants, including a grand prize of $100,000.
