  • The First State Animal Center-SPCA has been accepted into the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $600K Challenge.
    FSAC-SPCA has a goal to save more than 600 cats and dogs in three months during June, July and August 2014. The center is one of 50 animal shelters across the United States in the competition.
    The ASPCA and Rachael Ray will award a $100,000 grand prize to the shelter contestant that achieves the greatest increase in lives saved during this three-month period. The contestant that does the best job of engaging its community members in helping to save more animals will win $25,000. Those organizations that do the best in their divisions will be eligible for between $10,000 and $25,000 in additional grants. In total, $600,000 in grant funding will be awarded for increases in animal lives saved, as well as a photo contest and general participation.
    Last year’s competing shelters saved more than 56,000 cats and dogs during the contest, an increase of more than 12,000 over the same period in 2012.
