Saving Pet's Challenge

We're really excited to let you know that we're a part of the Saving Pets Challenge 2017.

Michelson Found Animals is launching the 4th annual Saving Pets Challenge, an online fundraising competition which benefits animal welfare organizations dedicated to keeping companion pets out of shelters and into loving homes. Each year, organizations from across the nation compete for a chance to win cash prizes to help fund life-saving programs for pets in their communities. Since its inception, participating groups in the Saving Pets Challenge have raised more than $4 million dollars combined. 

This year's challenge runs May 2 – June 1, and there are two ways for groups to win. First, the top five groups that raise the most money during the 2017 Saving Pets Challenge will be rewarded with cash grants from Michelson Found Animals. Second, there are weekly Bonus Challenges which are designed to encourage participation throughout the challenge and make it easier for smaller organizations to compete.

$150,000 in Cash Prizes
1st place - $50,000
2nd place - $30,000
3rd place - $20,000
4th place - $10,000
5th place - $5,000
* Bonus Challenge prizes totaling $35,000
