We’ve Been Nominated!
Hey everyone! Wonderful news! O’Malley’s courageous story has inspired so many people that it made it as a finalist for Best Blog Post in the 2011 Petties! Thank you so much to everyone who nominated us! I know how inspirational O’Malley has been to me and Nikki so I am so excited that this will bring even more awareness to him and he can inspire that many more people! O’Malley is a cat that never let anything keep him down. He’s overcome great obstacles with such grace and determination that he makes a great role model for everyone! The animal world, it seems, came together when we first told his story and I’m hoping they’ll come around us once again so we can spread his message even further! Please vote for us so that we can share O’Malley’s story far and wide! Also, if we win, we’ll get to donate $1000 to a shelter of our choice!
Please Vote For Us!
Voting is done here: The Petties 2011
There are 8 categories this year and we’re up for a Pettie in Best Blog Post which is in the top right corner. Our name is, of course, I Love Rescue Animals.
This year people may vote more than once so we’re hoping that you will come back and support us every day until the close of the voting period, which is July 29th! I know it’s hard to keep up a campaign that long so any help you can give us in spreading the word would be very much appreciated! You can help us by telling your friends, family, dog park buddies, email lists, or any animal lover you happen to bump into on the street!
