By now, most of you have probably voted for your favorite shelter in my sidebar. The shelter with the most votes at the end of the month will be the one I support as a Petties Best Blog Post finalist and they will also get a ChipIn Widget on my blog’s sidebar for the month of August. If you want to know who is winning now, you can go to the poll and click “View Results.” If your shelter is not winning, then get your friends to come over and vote! And if your favorite shelter is winning, don’t be a slacker — keep those votes coming! And remember, if you want the shelter I support to win the $1000 dollar prize, you have to keep voting for me every day in the Petties until July 31!
I just found out another way your favorite shelter can win some money: Purina One beyOnd and GOOD have partnered for the “Shine a Light on a Shelter” challenge, in which one shelter will get a $10,000 grant! They want to help shelter pets overcome the stigma of being “damaged goods” (you know and I know that’s a bogus myth, but amazingly — and sadly — there humans out there who believe it). So they want you to come to the Shine A Light On a Shelter website and nominate your favorite shelter by explaining how it makes the world a better place. Nominations will be accepted until noon Pacific Time on July 30. A panel of judges will pick the top 40 submissions and from August 6 to August 20, the public gets to vote! If your shelter is the winner, you win too — you get a year’s supply of Purina One beyOnd and a year’s subscription to GOOD magazine.
Make your shelter stand out! You can include a photo or a video to represent your shelter (adopted shelter kitties, this is your chance to be a star!). Make note of awesome things your shelter does that make it different from the rest. Take some time to think about what you want to say, and then submit your shelter here at the Shine A Light On a Shelter website.
Good luck to your shelter — both here and in the Shine A Light on a Shelter challenge!
