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 Adopt-a-Pet.com 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 Adopt-a-Pet.com as special thank-you gifts for them and their beloved companions.
