Grand Dogs appreciate the support

To the Editor:

The excitement of the Grand Dog fundraiser benefitting Advocates and Pet Pals culminated on Nov. 6 at the Grand Dog Election. Candidates, campaign managers, and avid supporters were there stuffing the ballot boxes up to the very last moment.

Eventually Freeta Goodhome pulled ahead with the most votes (and money raised) to be elected the first Grand Dog of Grand County. She will use her newly acquired title to ensure that everyone – both two-footed and four pawed – may live a safe and happy life, free of fear and violence.

Many Thanks to all of the candidates, campaign managers, local businesses, and community members for participating in this event and helping make Grand County a safer place for all living beings. For more information about the election and Advocates’ mission please visit
