New Lives Contest: You could win a donation to your favorite shelter or rescue group!

Tags: , , , , ,


New Lives by Joanne Wannan tells the stories of rescue dogs and how they’ve shaped their adopter’s lives.

On Friday we shared an excerpt from Joanne Wannan’s new book, New Lives: Stories of Rescued Dogs Helping, Healing and Giving Hope. (Read about Leo, a Pit Bull once owned by Michael Vick who became a therapy dog and Canine Good Citizen.)

Joanne’s book is all about the ways rescued pets give us new lives — and she’s pledged to use her book to help shelter pets find new lives, too. Joanne’s donating 50% of the book’s profits for the months of October and November to a member shelter or rescue group. This is where you come in.

The New Lives Contest
From now until Sept. 12, we’re asking you to tell us how your life is
new and improved thanks to a rescue pet. Simply leave your story as a
comment on this blog post with either a valid Facebook Connect account
or your e-mail address.

The week of Sept. 12, we’ll select a winner to name the
member shelter or rescue group that will receive the donation. (Read the
official terms and conditions.)

So tell us: How is your life a “new life” now that you’ve adopted a pet?
