GreaterGood.org has teamed up with Halo pet food to help celebrate the launch of FidoFoster.org, a new resource that aims to "improve the care of homeless dogs by supporting a national network of foster caregivers and helping organizations become foster-centric."
As part of the launch, the team is hosting a "Walk and Wag" photo contest, where dog fosters and adopters are invited to share photos that showcase the personality of their dog. The photo should answer the question, "What makes your dog wag?" Pictures can be uploaded at FidoFoster.org from now until Aug. 31.
"To date, GreaterGood.org has provided over $15 million in support for COVID-19 disaster-relief to animal shelters and communities, including cash grants, in-kind supplies and programmatic support like FidoFoster.org," said Liz Baker, CEO of GreaterGood.org. "FidoFoster.org will help save homeless dogs and ease the burden of animal shelters, while the ‘Walk and Wag’ photo contest will help us recognize the heroes that provide foster and permanent homes for these pups in need."
The two grand prize winners (adoption and foster category) of the "Walk and Wag" photo contest will receive the following:
- One-year supply of Halo pet food
- One 5,000 meal donation of Halo pet food to the shelter nominated by the entrant
- One private virtual training session with Andrea Arden
- One private photo session with Seth Casteel
- One "shout-out" video from Olivia Munn posted on her social media
- One $5,000 animal welfare cash grant to the shelter nominated by the entrant, courtesy of MyPetCandle
- One Wag! premium annual membership
- $100 in free Wag! walks
Two runner ups in each category will receive 3,000 Halo meals to donate to an animal shelter of their choice and $100 in free dog walks from Wag!
The "Walk and Wag" panel of judges, including Olivia Munn, Andrea Arden and Seth Casteel, will select the top 25 foster dog walking photos, and the top 25 adopted dog walking photos for the public to vote on from Sept. 7-20.
One grand prize winner and two runner ups in both categories, with the most votes, will be announced on Sept. 22.
