2016 National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week Contest
   The National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week was founded by the Humane Society of the United States in an effort to encourage people to get to know their local shelters. That will hopefully encourage them to become involved in their lifesaving work.


  1. Those are some cute looking pets searching for new homes. Love the one with the blue and brown eyes. I can only say be careful. The Humane Society is where we got our cats and as you know...Bert is a real paw full!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing! Hopefully this helps more rescues hear about the opportunity. :)

    And these photos are great. That dog with the sock monkey would be one I'd have to greet if I saw him/her at an adoption event!

  3. Hope every buddy finds their forever home
    Lily & Edward

  4. We are hopeful all the pets find wonderful fur-ever homes and thank you for your advocacy on behalf of rescues. ღ

  5. Wow, that's quite a prize. What a fantastic contest! ~Rascal and Rocco

  6. This does sound like a great contest!

  8. What a great contest! We'll get our mom to enter our local shelter.

  9. What a fabulous contest! I just started using them for pet medications a couple of months ago - their service is great.
