Win $15,000 for your favorite shelter!

Care2.com, the ASPCA and AdoptAPet.com have teamed up to sponsor America’s Favorite Animal Shelter contest. Until July 10th, you can vote for the shelter of your choice. The shelter with the top votes will earn much-needed funds in the amount of $15,000! But, this isn’t your average contest. Even shelters that don’t rack up the votes have a chance to win. Every week, a random organization will be awarded $500. Not too shabby!

So what are you waiting for? Send your friends and family an email, post your shelter’s contest page to Facebook, tweet the contest out, or go old school and print out a flyer.

My vote’s going out to the Butte Humane Society in Chico, CA. Who are you casting your vote for?

    I gotta support the Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation, a fabulous nonprofit that provides specially-trained volunteers to local LA animal shelters to help care for one of the most misunderstood and neglected companion animals: rabbits. With rabbits being the third most common animal in shelters (behind dogs and cats) I think this organization’s mission to educate the public about the unique needs of bunnies is absolutely vital.

      They seem like a fabulous organization! And you’re right that rabbits are misunderstood as companion animals. Curious, cute and with the ability to be litter-trained, rabbits can make great members of the family in the right home and given the right set up.
