2018 Pet Contest Winners

2018 Pet Contest Winners

We want to thank everyone who came out this weekend for our Pet Contest and Adoption event. It was so much fun and you all helped support a great cause. We also want to give a big thank you to Vicki Gagne of ECCR, and Michael Jimenez of Dream Coiffure Lounge for setting it up with Charleen. We also want to thank Matt Logee and his daughter Olivia, Andrew Hird, and Lori Dodd for all their help throughout the day.

In case you couldn’t make it to the event, we wanted to share the winner of our contests. Our Pet Photo contest is actually two contests in one. First, there’s the Calendar contest. This winner will grace the cover of our yearly pet calendar. The other contest is the People’s Choice. This winner will get a full page in our yearly pet calendar.

This year, the winner of the Calendar Contest is the adorable Apple! She’s less then a year old. She was rescued by East Coast Canine Rescue and placed into a very loving forever home. She was actually under the Christmas tree with a red bow this past Christmas. She has the cutest ears and loves to play!

The winner of our People’s Choice Contest is Sully! This cute Shih tzu is 2 years old. He love his squeaky toys. He also loves cuddling and playing with his brother Gus, who was a past winner of the People’s Choice.

Congratulations to both of our winners! And a big thank you to everyone who participated this year!
