Oh Dog! I am so excited!
Between now and August 17th, you can nominate YOUR favorite shelter volunteer for the DogTime Unsung Hero Petties Award!
This award is for a human that goes the extra mile to help us animals find our forever homes.
I know I had a hard time choosing who to nominate, but you can only nominate one person, so think about who you feel best personifies the unsung hero.
The winner will be the volunteer with the most nominations. And the prize is $10.000 dollars for a shelter of the winner’s choice (must be a 501c3 non-profit). So work it people!
And if you want to nominate someone, but aren’t sure who, may I recommend Kevin Hattori of PAWS in Norwalk, CT? Kevin is a volunteer and he blogs at Animal Shelter Volunteer. I interviewed Kevin last January about being a shelter volunteer. You can read the post here.
If you’ve been voting in the Petties awards contest, you’ll also recognize Kevin’s blog as running against this one for Best Cause-Related Blog. I just want you to know that one of the FIRST people to congratulate me on being a finalist? Yep, it was Kevin. He’s hard-working AND all class.
So whoever you choose to nominate, you need to do it soon. August 17th will be here before you know it! Use this link to nominate your unsung hero.
