Contests for Dog Lovers

Contest Recap: In Celebration of Second Chances…

Thank you to all who entered the 2023 “Celebration of Second Chances” photo contest. It was a joy to see the pics come in. As with the previous contests, it was difficult to choose only three winners. Eventually, though, the panel of judges decided on a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner.

In every instance, the winning photos captured the pure delight of why the adoption was one of the best decisions you ever made, or why you love your shelter dog.

First place:

Coffee and sunshine with my rescue is the best simple pleasure a human could ask for.

Second place:

This is TBONe and I didn’t adopt him…he adopted me! He talked to my heart ❤️

Third place:

“So very sleepy… Life is good” Cypress, our foster-fail found us, kept us, and loves us endlessly. Her soul is magic and she reminds us that every second can be beautiful.
