Finalists for the 2013 Petties Awards!

Holy Cat!  We just learned that Animal Shelter Volunteer Life is one of the four finalists for the "Best Cause Related Blog" category of the 2013 Petties Awards!  This is the second year in a row we have been a finalist for the Petties, which are DogTime Media's annual awards show recognizing "the best of the pet blogging community."


Huge thanks to everyone who nominated us (including our awesome pals at Rumpydog, who actively encouraged their readers to nominate us).  What an incredible honor to be included among so many amazing bloggers we respect and admire.  Good luck to all of the finalists (many of whom are our friends)!

No matter who wins, we're glad that the animals will benefit!  How, you ask?  Well, the winning blog in each category will receive a $1,000 donation to the shelter of their choice.  We, of course, would choose PAWS of Norwalk, Connecticut, where we volunteer, and where Moosey, and Angels Sammy, Graphite, and Lady Madonna were adopted from.  And in case you're wondering ... all of the beautiful kitties in the collage above are just a few of those now at PAWS, waiting to find their very own forever homes. 

We'd love it if you would VOTE FOR US DAILY, now through July 31, 2013.  And please share and invite others to do the same -- via Facebook, Twitter, email, blogs, word of mouth, and anything else you can think of.  Thank you, everybody! :)
