There were over 25,000 votes, so a lot of you are probably very interested in finding out who won! (I know I am, since I am one of the finalists!) The Pettie Awards are this Friday, August 26 at 5 PM US Eastern Time — and you can watch online! Go to www.dogtime.com/petties at the appointed time. And you really should watch them live if you can, especially if you are on Twitter because you will have a chance to win $1000 for the shelter of your choice! All you need to do is congratulate your favorite winners using the hashtag #petties. The two best Tweets (I am not sure how that is going to be determined) will win a grand each for their favorite shelter. One even luckier shelter will have the chance to win $10,000 — that will be announced during the program. You can follow the Petties on Twitter, and on Facebook.
In the meantime, I also want to remind you that I already have a winning shelter, whether I get the Pettie Award or not: your votes on my blog earned a ChipIn widget for A Call 4 Paws! Thank you to those who have already donated — and there is still time to give! Any amount helps — if enough of you forego just one Frappuccino or brown bag it for lunch instead of eating out one day this week, it will add up big time to help homeless Jersey City pets! So look at my right hand sidebar, scroll just a little bit down to the widget and click ChipIn!
