The second round of The Animal Rescue Site $300K Shelter+ Challenge of 2011 is officially over, with two more rounds to go this year.
Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc., which recently won a $5,000 grant.
In the most recent round, Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. of St. Pauls, NC, won the $5,000 Grand Prize. Sixty-six other shelters and rescue groups received grants ranging from $1,000-2,000.
Many winners had never won a Shelter+ Challenge grant before. Among the first-time winners was Jackson County Humane Society in Newport, AR, which won the Spring Romp Photo Contest category. Supporter Stacy Chambliss submitted the adorable photo of her bulldog Mack kissing a kitten, which won over voters nationwide and earned the shelter a $2,000 grant.
Your favorite adoption group can still win a grant! The next round of voting begins July 4 at The Animal Rescue Site. Until then, you can still help homeless pets by visiting the site every day and clicking the purple button to donate money to animal shelters.
