The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) $100K challenge has animal adoption agencies showing impressive results as they race for the $125,000 cash prize. The challenge encourages shelters throughout the US to save 300 more cats and dogs than they did during the 2009 contest, offering prize money to successful contestants. The Kent County SPCA of Camden, Del., adopted out 43 dogs and three cats during the first week of the challenge, while after three weeks, the Humane Society of Boulder Valley in Colorado adopted out 118 cats and 65 dogs, among other successes. The challenge runs until October 31.
