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