Through online voting, 9th Life Hawai'i won a $1,000 prize in The Animal Rescue Site's 2013 $100,000 Shelter+ Challenge, in conjunction with Petfinder.
The 9th Life Hawai'i's supporters garnered the most votes in the state for the shelter during the first contest period of the year.
"These challenges have been a wonderful opportunity for Petfinder.com members," said Lisa Robinson, executive director of the Petfinder.com Foundation. "The winners not only have a chance to win prizes, but the challenges really bring the shelter's supporters together with a common mission for adoptable pets."
9th Life Hawai'i posts its adoptable pets online at www.petfinder.com/shelters/HI01.html.
GreaterGood's The Animal Rescue Site has funded more than $1.3 million in grants to shelters and rescue groups since the challenges began in 2008. The funds for the grants come from The Animal Rescue Site's innovative Click to Give program and site sponsors.
