I know of a very deserving shelter in chicago ridge, illinois. Animal welfare league. I have volunteered there before and seen the miracles this shelter performs. They are a no kill, non for profit organization. Everyone who works there does so on a volunteer basis. They have a 24/7/365 a year intake on strays, injured and relinquished animals. None are turned away. At the moment they are severely overcrowded and in need of funding for expansion. People come from all over the state just to drop their animals there. On an average day they have an intake rate of 71 animals with only approx. 16 adoptions. They do not take only cats and dogs. They have cats, dogs, birds, hampsters, snakes, lizards, etc. No animal is turned away. They go out to local pet stores and have adoption awareness days and send out newsletters on how important it is to adopt a shelter pet. They also investigate cases of abuse and neglect. Please consider helping this shelter out! Thank you. And please visit them at www.animalwelfareleague.com

In St. Louis, Missouri there is a wonderful non-profit animal rescue organization called Stray Haven Rescue that I've adopted a cat from. They take care of all cats all ages -- domestic, stray, abandoned and feral and send them to foster homes until they're given the healthcare that they need until they are ready to be adopted. Their goal is to end the euthanization of the adoptable animals. The girls that work to take care of them are the sweetest and spend a ton of time working to get these cats to their full health to get them adopted. Since it is a non-profit organization sometimes it is hard for them to run on the funds they have to take care of all the cats and kittens because of all the supplies they need, shots, surgeries, etc. so it would be greatly appreciated and amazing if you'd consider them.
Here is a link to their website: http://strayhavenrescue.org/index.html

Dear Ellen, I just watched your show today and saw where you are partnering up with HALO/Petco grant. I would like to nominate C.A.R.E.{ community animal rescue effort}. CARE has been an organization since July 2, 2007. I have been a volunteer for 6 years now. A great group to work with. Our mission is to alleviate the pain and suffering of all abused, abandoned and homeless animals. We have rescued over 2,000.00 animals since our organization started. Peggy McQueary is the founder of CARE. She works full time as a correctional officer in Ft Worth but her passion and "Baby" is C.A.R.E. We works solely off of donations and fundraisers. We are been a 501{c} {3} non-profit organization since 2009. We are located in the rural South west part of Palo Pinto County in the Community's of Gordon, Mingus, Strawn and Palo Pinto Lake Texas, just 70 miles west of Ft. Worth, TX. We helped with the rescues of dogs and cats from the devastating tornado's that hit Grandbury, TX. and Moore, OK. in 2012. We were right in the midst of evacuation of our own animals when the devastating wildfires took over the PK Lake and Strawn areas back in 2011. Any amount of your donations would be greatly appreciated!! Our website is www.care4rescue.com. My # is 940-769-2726 and Peggy's # is 254-631-6937. We are also located on Facebook. Thank you for our consideration!

The grant should go to Great Plains SPCA who has two locations; Merriam, Kansas and Independence, Missouri. They are a not-for-profit, no kill shelter, which serves 35,000 animals annually. Having the privilege to work there as a volunteer has opened my eyes to just how special this shelter is. We are one of the only no kill animal shelters around the Kansas City area. Working there, we were able to adopt our dog, Molly, from there and she has brought so much joy into our family. Being a not-for-profit, they struggle to bring in the money necessary to buy beds, food, toys, etc, for the animals at our shelter. They could really use the money to keep doing the wonderful things they are doing! Thank you! Love your show!

Dear Ellen, a question ...when will the winners be announced?
I have a friend who runs Big Oaks Farm Rescue in Greenwood, SC. As it sounds, they rescue abused & neglected "farm" animals
He entered your contest. In the mean time, his soon to be ex wife,has asked her attorney to demand he sell his rescue, he has over 300 animals with no place to go. The majority would end up being slaughtered. He is being charged with contempt of court
for refusing to sign a sell contract. His hearing is January 28, 2014.We are working with his bank to have donations accepted toward the purchase (from ex)his half and this would be a godsend.
Please announce when the winners will be named.

Thank you for all you do for all these beautiful creatures.
A fan, Dianne Hammond. (My numbers 1-864-616-7829 or 1-864-246-6236)

I would like to nominate the Shelly Olree's Cat Shelter for your grant. This is a no-kill cat shelter in Hillman Michigan. It is run by a couple of cat loving women. They find homes for all cats that are found, rescued, or donated. They nurse many of the cats back into good health. The local humane society even gives them there sick cats to find homes for. Recently, they gave them 2 blind cat's and this shelter took care of them and found them good homes. They have been using Shutterfly for years to advertise and show there cats--please check out the website---https://shellyolreesshelter.shutterfly.com/dynamicduets.

They do all of this from the goodness of there heart, there own pockets and small donations from friends and family members. They are getting more and more cats and could use the financial help. Thank you for this program.

WE have a wonderful shelter in the Denver area called the Longmont Humane Society. Two years ago my husband and I adopted our wonderful pit bull terrier (Lillie) from this shelter where she had been for almost a year. Without LHS she never would have survived until we came along to adopt her. Since pit bulls are banned in several cities in the Denver metro area it falls to places like LHS to take many of these dogs who would automatically be euthanized at other area shelters. LHS provides an invaluable service to the community on a daily basis as was evidenced by the fact that they took in over 250 animals during Colorado's recent floods when their owners had no where else to leave them. Longmont Humane Society would be a great choice for this grant.

I've volunteered for over a year and now have been working for about 6 months at PAWS humane society in Fort Walton Beach, FL. We take in every single animal that comes to our door and unfortunately that makes it impossible for us to be a no-kill shelter. We're working on saving money to build a new facility to we can accomplish the goal of staying a humane society but becoming a no-kill shelter as well. Our free-roaming cat house is rotting apart and causing our cats to all become ill. We have over 60 runs for dogs that are slowly falling apart and rusting as well from all the bleach used over 30+ years. We are a non profit organization and run solely on donations. We are in desperate need of help to make our facility a better home for these poor souls that get dumped here every day. This is a very deserving facility. Thank you Ellen! <3

Dear Ellen, I am a volunteer with Dachshund Paws and Pals in Southern California. Dachshund Paws and Pals is a non-profit 501(C)3, no kill organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned dachshunds and other small breeds from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, and boarding facilities, they are able to rescue hundreds of dogs every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. Since 2005 Dachshund Paws has adopted out 1362 dogs into such homes. All of the dogs in their care will be spayed or neutered as soon as the animal’s health and age permits. No animal will be released from the rescue unaltered. Recognizing that every dog deserves a chance, Dachshund Paws will not discriminate on the basis of age or health. They will dedicate every resource at their disposal to the physical, emotional, and behavioral rehabilitation of each animal that they rescue. All decisions regarding the animals in their care will be based on the quality of life of that individual animal. They also serve as a resource to our community by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership when needed, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition. Dachshund Paws is not a very big organization but does amazing things just as well. Tara Hamilton is the founder and she is an amazing person. Works full time to support her family. She is raising her nephew and does rescue out of her love for animals. The rescue struggles with funds on a constant basis but even if it means maxing out her own credit cards she still keeps going. The rescue submitted an applicatin for the grant and it would be amazing to see her win. Even if it's not the $100,000 grant, even one of the smaller ones would be a significant help to the rescue. Thank you so much for partnering with petco for this!!
