CANTON, Ga. -- The Cherokee County Animal Shelter is participating in the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge, and Liberty Elementary School is completely on board.
Students at the Canton school have raised $618.45 for the shelter so far.
To win the challenge, the shelter must rescue 300 homeless pets this summer. It costs $23.53 for the shelter to adopt out one cat or dog, so the Liberty students' donations saved the lives of 26 pets.
