Win Cash for Your Favorite Animal Shelter

All too often people are rewarded for behavior that’s less than exemplary–while people who are making a positive difference in the world work for little tangible compensation. And although emotional and intellectual satisfaction go a long way, how about a little cash to take care of logistics? That’s what we’re thinking, and that is what’s at stake with Care2′s Favorite Animal Shelter Contest.

More than 7 million adoptable dogs and cats are put to sleep each year due to overpopulation. Through this contest Care2 will reward shelters and rescue groups who work tirelessly to care for homeless animals, and raise awareness about the importance of supporting pet adoptions and taking action to save animals’ lives. Check for your favorite animal shelter and vote now!

Care2 will donate a total of $15,000 to the local animal shelters or rescue groups with the most votes.

1st Prize: $10,000
2nd Prize: $3,000
3rd Prize: $1,000
4th and 5th Prizes: $500 each

And our friends from are sponsoring the following prizes:
A $1,000 donation to a randomly selected participating shelter each week for five weeks.
Recruiters Rewards: The 20 contest participants who recruit the most friends to vote for their favorite shelter will receive a $50 gift certificate for pet products sponsored by as special thank-you gifts for them and their beloved companions.

Vote now!

Fellow Care2 members - if you're an animal lover, read this article too .....

Teresa W started a petition on April 25 2013, to ask Care2 to make this a Butterfly Credits item. The link is below, please check it out, SIGN and tell your friends !!!!!!!

This is a great idea - a cause where we could actually SEE our credits working - ask Care2 to give us the POSSIBILITY to support this cause with our Butterfly Credits !!!!

Come on all you members who have been stockpiling your credits - SIGN Teresa's petition and get this project moving - then you'll have something really special to support !!!

The petition reached the first 1,000 signatures in this first week but we need MANY MANY more signatures if this is going to be taken seriously ....... so please spread the word !!!!!

Apologies for posting "off subject" but I really feel this merits it - Thank you !!!

All shelters, especially no kill shelters, deserve to win....but hopefully some day in the "golden age" there will be no need for shelters or sanctuaries.
