SAVE THE DATE: Registration for No Place Like Home Challenge Opens Monday, January 11

Helloooooo, 2021! How does keeping more pets in their homes AND $150,000 in grant prizes sound for the New Year? The Association has joined with 10 other national animal welfare organizations for the No Place Like Home Challenge, and we’re asking qualifying municipal shelters, 501(c)(3) shelters, and rescues to rise to the occasion and return as many pets to their homes as possible from March 1 – March 31. 

Applications for the Challenge open this Monday, January 11, and will close on Friday, January 15, at 5 pm PST.

Don’t miss out on this chance to participate! Visit the No Place Like Home Challenge for complete details, important dates, resources and requirements, and in the meantime, here are 3 ways to get a head start for Monday:
