Winner of 2012’s Most Heartwarming Story Contest!

Blanco, from Home “Fur” Good Animal Rescue, in Phoenix, Arizona, won the Most Heartwarming Story Contest! Thanks for all your votes!

Blanco - Heartwarming Dog Story

Congratulations to Home “Fur” Good Animal Rescue on winning Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Most Heartwarming Story Contest! Their story recounted the experiences of Blanco, a dog who had been in the care of an animal facility since he was only eight-weeks-old and only knew of what life was like from the inside of a kennel. After a surprise diagnosis and specialized obedience training, Blanco found a forever home in November, 2012, during the Iams Home 4 the Holidays adoption campaign.

We also want to extend our congratulations to Blanco’s family because they chose pet adoption over supporting a puppy mill or backyard breeder!

This year’s contest was a tight race. Blanco’s story received a total of 1,212 votes, barely beating out our second place story by 62 votes. We are pleased to award Home “Fur” Good Animal Rescue with the first-place prize of $500 and are honored to have them, and all our Most Heartwarming Story finalists, as Iams Home 4 the Holidays partner organizations! Thank you for all your hard work for rescuing orphan pets!
