I am so happy to report that all of you have helped to make Black and Orange’s Blog a finalist in The Petties 2013 as “Best Cause Blog.” From July 5 to July 31, you can vote every day, once a day for our blog, which is listed under “Best Cause Blog” and “B and O Cats.”
To Vote for Black and Orange’s Blog as the “Best Cause Blog,” go HERE. Click on “Vote Now.” Remember, we are listed as “B and O Cats” on the ballot.
The winner in each blog category will win a $1,000 donation to the rescue or shelter of choice. The winners will be announced in an online ceremony in September.
The Petties are sponsored by Dogtime Media and are a prestigious award for companion animal bloggers.
After you have voted for B and O’s blog, you can also nominate an “Unsung Hero” by going HERE. You can nominate an “Unsung Hero” between July 5 and July 31. In 2012, Dogtime Media and The Petties introduced the Unsung Hero Award to recognize the thousands of volunteers doing incredible work on behalf of homeless animals. This year, Dogtime Media and The Petties are asking the public to nominate those who have gone above and beyond for shelters and rescue organizations in their area. Dogtime Media will share a few of the most inspiring stories on their site and announce the winner during the 2013 Petties broadcast. The recipient receives a personalized Petties trophy and a $10,000 donation to the shelter or rescue organization of his or her choice.
The HomeAgain® Hero of the Year award will recognize some inspiring people who are making significant contributions to the health and well-being of pets. Worthy individuals could be volunteers at animal rescues or shelters, responders to natural disasters, philanthropists, fund-raisers, animal advocates, or anyone else who might be considered a hero to pets.
On behalf of the winner, HomeAgain will donate $10,000 to a participating charity of his or her choice, as well as $1,000 to participating charities chosen by 4 finalists, including the Petfinder.com Foundation.
If you think you know someone who is worthy of the award, you can find more details and complete a nomination form at www.HomeAgainHeroes.com. Nominations must be received by July 31, 2013.
