Thanks to more than 5,300 local animal lovers who voted for the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society, the Lewiston organization won a spot in this year’s ASPCA $100K Challenge, competing for grants from ASPCA totaling $300,000, including a top prize of $100,000. The challenge is a nationwide competition for animal shelters (and their communities) aiming to get more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before. Taking place from Aug. 1 to Oct. 31, the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society will compete to find homes for more cats and dogs than they did during the same period in 2010. They will be holding special events and promotions. For more information, contact the shelter at 783-2311 or [email protected] or follow them on Facebook at www.facebook/gahumane. A complete schedule of events is available at Saving
