What is the Shelter Showdown?

The Shelter Showdown is an opportunity to provide your local shelter with funding to help deserving pets find loving homes. Pets Add Life is giving a grand prize of $25,000 to one shelter to celebrate PAL’s National Get a Pal For Your Pet Day on November 19. Second and third place winners receive $15,000 and $10,000 donations!
WHY?  Because your vote can help the thousands of adoptable pets in this country find their perfect home! Shelters and rescue groups rely on support and donations to place pets in homes and through this contest you can help your favorite shelter or rescue group win money that will further their lifesaving efforts. October 22 through November 19th, vote for your favorite shelter up to once per day and the shelter with the most votes wins! Spread the word and rally your friends and family to join in the competition!
Please help your local animal shelter and have fun daily voting!   ~ UPDATE*UPDATE


To PAL fans and Shelter Showdown participants-

Thank you for your interest in PAL and for participating in the Shelter Showdown Contest. We have been working diligently to resolve the voting issues but unfortunately, our voting system has been hacked. For this reason, we are ending the contest as we cannot verify the validity of votes. We do have a tally of votes cast before we were hacked so we have made the decision to equally distribute prize money to the top 25 shelters with the most votes. We know that some people have called for the contest to start over, but we do not want to risk another hacking event. As a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading the joys of pet ownership and the importance of pet adoption, this contest was meant to benefit pets in need of forever homes. We feel this resolution accomplishes this mission. It warms our hearts to see how passionate you all are and we will work to find another way to support shelters in the future. We understand for some of you, this will be disappointing and frustrating, and for that we are truly sorry. We appreciate your support, understanding, and above all what you do for pets.

The following are the top 25 shelters with the most votes, listed in alphabetical order:

Abandoned Animal Rescue
