Nora, a 3-year-old white pit bull recently adopted from the Yolo County Animal Services Shelter by Davis resident Lina Layiktez, is among 40 finalists in the Rachael Ray $100K Challenge Photo Contest.

The $100K Challenge is a three-month contest in which 50 shelters across the United States are competing to break their own records at saving animals’ lives. The photo contest showcases some of the adorable animals who were reclaimed by their owners or adopted from shelters during the $100K Challenge.

A panel of ASPCA judges has selected 40 finalists based on the aesthetic quality of the photo submissions and how compellingly the submission demonstrates the $100K Challenge’s mission to save lives.

All finalist photos are posted on an ASPCA $100K Challenge Photo Contest Pinterest Board, where the public is invited to vote for the winners by liking and re-pinning their favorite photos by the Aug. 5 deadline. Winners will be determined by the number of likes (re-pins count as two likes).

The ASPCA will award 10 $1,000 grants, five $2,000 grants and one grand-prize grant of $5,000 to Challenge Shelter winners.

To vote, log on to www.aspca.org/about-us/100k-challenge and support Nora and the Yolo County Animal Services Shelter.

The Yolo County shelter, which is participating in the Rachael Ray $100K challenge, logged its 200th animal adoption as of Tuesday.
