America's Favorite Animal Shelter Contest

Kelly and I are participating in “America’s Favorite Animal Shelter” contest sponsored by Care2, ASPCA and Adopt-a-Pet. Whether you are a dog and cat lover, animal right advocate or community member, you can help your favorite animal shelter win $15,000! The more votes your shelter gets, the better your shelter’s chances of winning.

I cast my vote for Homeward Bound Dog Rescue, a busy rescue shelter near me. I know some great bloggers volunteer for this rescue. And, some of their dogs will be featured in my upcoming video book trailer!

To join me in voting for Homeward Bound, simply click here:

3. Recruit friends to vote for your shelter:

  6. I love how your feet don't touch the floor in that photo - I live with the same challenge. =) I voted!

  7. Not only is that a great way to help out your shelter, it's a darn easy way to help out too!

  8. I cast my vote. Thank you for sharing this great contest, I'll be posting it on my blog, too. I wouldn't known about it if it wasn't for your post.

  9. Wish I could help. I was going to vote for Mr Pip's shelter but it won't let me with a UK postcode. It sounds like there are a LOT of blogging folks with lots of good shelters they are supporting.
    I'm sure the winner will be a deserving cause. Good luck everyone.
