Today is a big day for All Things Dog Blog, the debut of #PetCharityDonations and our first winner. When I first began this site, I never envisioned being able to help charities. My dream was to help pet parents find better solutions to their many challenges. We've tried to accomplish this in many ways--general lifestyle tips for pet households, greener living information, veterinary advice, dog training help, product reviews, giveaways, pet solutions articles, and most recently, Doga instruction to help pet parents bond with Fido while working out at home.
After founding Super Dog Sunday™, this event became our annual charity effort, helping to highlight Petfinder pets while garnering donations from sponsors to support Petfinder Foundation. Now, we're finding other opportunities. By cleaning out our excess samples and allowing our philanthropically-motivated readers to strut their stuff, we're able to donate in their names when they win.
I worried that no one would enter. What was I thinking?!!! You came through for our shelters, foster families and rescues. You never let me down! I want to thank each and every one of you who joined in this effort. I wish I could put all your names on the large dog crate we'll be delivering to A New Beginning Pet Rescue. You all deserve it!
Congratulations to our winner, D. Ellis. A longtime reader, Ms. Ellis has participated in many of our events, giveaways, and photo contests. Thank you again for joining us for this charity event.
Watch for the photo of our delivery on our Facebook page. I'll post it with pride, knowing that my readers are the best. You care about pets everywhere. Pat yourselves on the back. Another rescued pet will have his very own crate this coming weekend.
