Energy supplier NRG announced on Wednesday that Red Paw Emergency Relief Team was the winner of $100,000 thanks to its annual voting competition, NRG Gives.

The nonprofit, which rescues pets trapped in their homes after fires and others disasters, beat out co-competitors College Possible Philadelphia and Canine Partners for Life during an eight-day public voting period. Those orgs received $20,000 and $10,000, respectively.

NRG delivered the news via a ceremonial check to Jen Leary at the Philadelphia Fire Academy where the Red Paw president and cofounder works.

“We can’t fully put into words the impact this $100,000 grant from NRG will have on Red Paw,” said Leary in a press release. “This is a watershed moment in our history and for the families with pets we serve. We have big, yet achievable goals for this money so that we can be there for people for many years to come. Thank you NRG for this wonderful opportunity and for our supporters for voting for us.”

Check out Leary’s guest posts about the need for local nonprofit donations in times of national need and for donors to remember that nonprofit staffers are human, too.
