A local animal shelter is in the running for a chance at $100,000 And they need your help.
SpokAnimal is taking part in the ASPCA Rachael Ray challenge. It's a three month long competition that encourages shelters to break their own records saving the lives of animals by finding permanent homes for them
"Our focus is saving lives and that's what this Rachael Ray theme is for us," SpokAnimal Executive Director Gail Mackie said. "Everyone is a life saver."
Mackie said that SpokAnimal was one of 50 shelters across the nation picked to take part. She said if they win, they'll use to the money to save more high-risk animals in the surrounding areas and adopt them out locally.
"We have been pulling animals since starting about last fall from other shelters," Mackie said. "We were in Colville, Idaho, Yakima, Quincy, Omak, we've been all over this week trying to save lives of animals that were at risk elsewhere."
