Pet lovers are always posting their photos and heartwarming rescue stories—now, you can raise money for the shelter of your choice by doing it.
MyRescue.dog is a new website (hosted at .dog, rather than .com) and was created in hopes of raising up to $100,000 to dog shelters and rescues nationwide.
Voting is open until September 26, and each vote will generate a $1 donation to Petfinder Foundation.
In the end, the top dog will receive $25,000 to donate to its shelter or rescue of choice, while the next 15 runners-up will get $5,000 to donate.
Here are some of our favorite stories—be sure to vote!
“Charlie was brought in as a stray to McKamey Animal Center.
It was fate that we met. I was volunteering at the shelter and fell in love with him the second I saw him.
He has completed our family and we love him dearly.”
“Comet was used as a breeding dog for much of his life. Because one of the other males didn’t like him, he was forced to live in one room all alone. He was a very shy, timid, unsocialized dog.
I met him about a month after the rescue took him in at an adoption event where I was to pick out a new foster to take home. Instantly I fell in love with Comet and he has really come out of his shell since being rescued.
He loves everyone he meets, whether they have four legs or two, and isn’t afraid of anything anymore. He enjoys going everywhere with me and loves wrestling with all his foster brothers.”
“Zoe was found as a stray in Brooklyn and brought to Brooklyn Animal Care and Control.
Who knows her back story but whatever it was, she was a very timid pup…who couldn’t trust anyone.
Thanks to Pibbles & More Animal Rescue they stepped up to rescue Zoe before euthanize and give her a second chance.
It took time and devotion and she’s finally able to let her guard down, and be the dog she always had in her.”
“Bailey was found in the rain, at night in a parking lot in Miami, Florida by a good Samaritan who took her in, checked for a chip, fostered her and posted her on petfinder.com.
We were looking for a dog just like her, so we adopted her and have spent the last 8 years promoting rescue and pit bull breeds!”
“Cubby lived at a breeders for 8 years until they were done with him. He had never touched grass, his legs were deformed from living in a cage and he was blind in one eye.
This photo is the day I was taking him home and he was scared but sat quietly looking at me.
Now he is like a puppy and loves going outside, playing with his toys and loves his new brother. He has been a real blessing.”
