I don't really think I'm the World's Best Pet Parent. That's a pretty lofty statement, and I have spoken to too many other freaking awesome pet parents to not be humbled by their dedication to their furkids. But maybe I could call myself one of the World's Best Pet Parents?
Amazingly, Popeye & I have been chosen as one of the 50 finalists in Petfinder's current photo contest. The finalist with the most public votes wins $10,000 donated to their rescue of choice. The 2nd place winner gets $5,000, and 10 honorable mentions get $1,000. Our rescue gets very few donations, and if you've been following this blog, you know that in virtually every case, our pet expenses far outweigh our adoption fees--sometimes even by the thousands. So the extra money comes out of pocket, from extra work I take on. Winning even $1,000 would be a huge help.
So vote for us and vote often! You'll need to sign up for a Petfinder account, but once you do, you'll be able to vote as many times as you want through Sept 28, 2010 (just hit the "Refresh" button of your browser to vote again).
