The McKamey Animal Care and Adoption Center has the opportunity to win $10,000 with local community support in the America's Favorite Animal Shelter contest sponsored by Care2.com and Adopt-a-Pet.com. Voters' favorite local animal shelter or rescue group will win the grand prize, which will go a long way to help McKamey to provide for the hundreds of animals that reside at the Center.
In addition to the grand prize, Care2 is awarding $13,500 to the nine runners-up in the contest. The winner of the contest is determined by its local citizens and supporters, who can vote for their shelter or group by going to www.care2/animalsheltercontest/76207. At this site, people can also invite their friends (via email) to vote for that same favorite shelter.
The contest aims to raise awareness about the importance of supporting pet adoptions and taking action to save homeless animals' lives. All participating animal shelters and rescue groups, including the McKamey Center, are part of the Adopt-a-Pet.com network.
Randy Paynter, CEO and founder of Care2 said, "As we enter this holiday season and the economic crisis deepens, we commend groups, like McKamey Animal Center, which promote the need for pet adoption to save animals' lives. We are excited to work with Adopt-a-Pet.com's network of shelters and rescue groups to support a cause that really matters to our members and so many others - the welfare and adoption of animals."
This contest runs from Nov. 5-Dec. 15. Officials said, "Remember to vote daily and invite your friends to vote too!"
