Wow! We're Nose-to-Nose Award Finalists!


Here's our adoptable pal, Tilly, doing her best interpretation of "Shock and Honor." Which is exactly what we felt Wednesday night, when the finalists for the 2016 BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards were announced, and we learned that Animal Shelter Volunteer Life has been named a finalist in the "Best Cause Blog" category for the second year in a row!

In a nutshell, the Nose-to-Nose Awards are the only pet industry awards in which pet bloggers and micro-bloggers are judged on the expertise, performance, and creativity of the entry. Each of the 12 categories is judged by a distinguished panel of professionals and not by popular vote. Winners will be announced at the BlogPaws 2016 Conference June 23-25 in Phoenix, Arizona.

We're humbled to be included in any discussion of leading blogs, and with incredible bloggers (many of whom are good friends) we love and admire. Thank you to those who nominated us, to the judging panel, and to BlogPaws. We also thank all of you, dear friends, for sharing in our lives, and for your continued love and support.

Congratulations to all of the finalists, including our fellow finalists for Best Clause Blog:
