GAIN Needs Guam’s Votes to Win $100,000


Guam – Guam Animals In Need has entered a competition held by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. 


GAIN needs to get as many online votes as possible in order to be given the opportunity to compete for the $100,000. 

They are asking each Guamanian with access to a computer to go to or and vote for GAIN once a day until April 16.

The ASPCA has teamed up with television celebrity Rachael Ray for the 2012 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge.  They’ll be giving away more than $500,000 in prize grants to help shelters save more homeless cats and dogs.  This is the third year the ASPCA has invited shelters across the country to join in the competition.

GAIN is currently competing in the ‘qualifying heat’ during which shelters will have to be voted in by their fans and supporters.  This is where GAIN needs your help.  They need enough votes to rank in the top 50 shelters.  Each supporter is allowed one vote a day.  GAIN supporters are asking you to show your community support by voting for Guam.

After the qualifying voting, fifty shelters will work to save at least 300 more cats and dogs during the months of August, September and October 2012 than they did the same period last year.

GAIN President Cindy Bartels said, “This is not only a great opportunity for our shelter, this is also a great opportunity to bring Guam to the forefront of peoples’ minds on the mainland.  We need every person on the island to vote once a day for Guam.  The prize grants will be used to improve our community’s shelter and the lives of many cats and dogs.”
