How to Enter

Vote for me in the Petfinder World's Best Pet Parent contest. The winners, determined by who gets the most public votes, will get to choose which rescues/shelters will receive a Petfinder grant. You can use this link to go directly to my page (I'm on the 4th page):

You will need to sign up for a Petfinder account if you don't already have one. Once you've signed up, you can vote as many times as you want--just click on the "Refresh" button of your browser after each vote. Remember, the more times you vote, the better chance I have of winning, which means the more prize that will be awarded!

After you've voted, come back to this page and leave a comment to this post with the following:

1- the first 5 characters of your Petfinder login.

2- the number of votes I've received after your vote (see image below).

3- your email address (so you can be contacted if you win). To avoid spam, it's best to leave your email in a form similar to: store at walkinthebark dot com.

4- if somebody told you about this giveaway, note them as your referrer and include that person's first name, last initial, and email address (example: Referred by Sean M friendATyahooDOTcom).

** See Comment #1 for an example**

Additional entries:

- Vote for us 5 more times in the Petfinder contest. Remember to hit the "refresh" button after each vote. Leave a comment with the number of votes I've received after your last vote and your email address. There is no limit on how many times you can enter this way. Leave 1 comment per 5 votes. ** See Comment #15 for an example**

**If you vote at least 15 times, to speed things up, you can just write "5 votes" in the first 2 comments. Then in the 3rd comment, write the last vote count and and your email address. See Comments #13-15 for an example.**
