Thank you to candidates and their managers,

The excitement of the 2016 Grand Dog fundraiser benefitting Advocates and Pet Pals culminated on September 25th at the Grand Dog Election. Candidates, campaign managers, and avid supporters were there stuffing the ballot boxes up to the very last moment. Pepper O’Donnell Super Dog kept a strong hold on first place with the most votes (and money raised) to be elected Grand Dog of Grand County. He will use his newly acquired title to ensure that everyone—two-footed, four pawed, scaly, slimy, clawed, or hoofed — may live a safe and happy life, free of fear and violence.

Advocates and Pet Pals express their sincerest gratitude to candidates and their campaign managers who worked so hard for the votes garnered along the campaign trail.
