MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Some say, "A picture is worth a thousand words," but the Mobile County Animal Shelter is hoping that those words can be translated into LIKEs and PINs from the public.
The Mobile County Animal Shelter is vying for a chance to win a Photo Contest sponsored by the ASPCA and Rachel Ray Challenge.
Two of the county shelter photos are among the 40 finalists competing for a chance to win prizes ranging from $1,000 - $5,000.
The public is invited to vote for the winners from July 23, 2013 to August 5, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. ET by liking and re-pinning their favorite photos. Winners will be determined by the number of likes (re-pins count as two likes).

The shelter is also competing in the $100,000 challenge sponsored by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Rachel Ray. MCAS has a goal of 1,000 lives saved before August 31 and is asking the public to Opt-to-Adopt!
Contest winners can earn anywhere from $5000 to $100,000 in grant money from the ASPCA. The county will use winnings to buy a transportation adoption trailer that will allow the county to travel and hold adoption events throughout Mobile County.
Other projects would include upgrading the kennels and developing and implementing a microchip program for the shelter.
