|Lost Dog to Participate in First Ever “Best in Shelter”|
|April 28, 2012
Arlington, VA: Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation will participate in the inaugural “Best in Shelter” (www.bestinshelter.org) virtual dog show competition sponsored by award-winning mystery author, Martha Grimes. “Best in Shelter” features dogs awaiting homes at Washington-DC area rescue organizations. Dogs compete for prize money for their respective organization.
Participating rescue organizations will enter up to four dogs eligible for adoption into the competition at www.bestinshelter.org. The public can view short video clips showing off the dog’s personality and/or unique character traits, and vote for their favorite pup between June 14 thru June 17th, 2012.
“Best in Shelter” gives dogs who have a harder time getting adopted a chance to strut their stuff and show off what they have to offer a new family,” says Colleen Learch, volunteer and Board member with Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation. “We’re thrilled that Best in Shelter is giving our pups this opportunity, and proud to be chosen as one of the four competing area rescue organizations. By sponsoring this, Ms. Grimes really is making a difference for rescue dogs.”
The first place winner will receive $50,000 for their rescue from Best in Shelter. Second and third place winners will receive $15,000 and $25,000, respectively. Participating rescues are limited to one cash prize.
Participating dogs from Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation will be announced by June 11, 2012.
