After our recent Every Dog Deserves Contest,with the winning shelter receiving a $1000 donation from Pedigree, we heard the most wonderful news.
The winning non-profit rescue group was St. Louis Senior Dog Project, and after they won the Pedigree donation, they moved forward on looking for a photographer to take photos of their senior dogs. We all know that a good (flattering) photo goes far when it comes to pet adoption.
Grouchy Puppy's motto is Give Fearlessly and Influence Positively. Everyday we try to live that sentiment, have the blog posts across Grouchy Puppy reflect it, and have all the stories and posts on our Facebook wall and Twitter promote it.
We work with groups of all kinds that support this message in their own way. We don't judge. We focus on sharing how people and companies are trying to do the right thing for animal welfare. We use our platform here to encourage civility so that together, we can improve the lives of animals and ourselves. There are more than 77 million dogs in the US. At the end of the day, we believe in the power of the human-animal bond.
When you invest in Grouchy Puppy, we promise that our words and actions will work to demonstrate how together, we can make a difference in the lives of animals. The effect of the St. Louis Senior Dog Project winning the contest we held ultimately caused them to receive not only a significant donation of money, but also of valuable time and photos from a pet photographer.
This is a wonderful example of how a simple action on our part, had a unintended but positively significant impact. We hope you'll join us as we try to positively influence people and communities everywhere.
