Nominate Fido for Canine King & Queen
By: Sarah Javier | September 7, 2017
It is a prestigious and rare honor to be nominated for the APA’s Canine King and Queen at our annual Canine Carnival. And it’s a tough job to do the nominating with 2,500+ adoptions happening at our Adoption Center each year. Not to mention we’ve been around for almost 100 years. Do the math…that’s a lot of dogs to pick from!
So, we had a brilliant idea! Why not let someone else do the nominating, that way we ensure not one dog is left behind! (That’s what we are all about here, isn’t it?!) This year’s King and Queen nominations for Canine Court are up to YOU! Anyone can nominate any dog! It can be your dog, a friend’s dog, a neighbor’s dog. Any breed. Any age. From anywhere. We don’t want to leave anyone out.
You can nominate your favorite canine companion HERE. Once a dog is nominated, people will vote for who they think should be this year’s King & Queen on our website. Each dog will receive its own webpage with an individual link to share with their pack for easily accessible voting.
Voting is simple and it will also help homeless pets at the Adoption Center. One vote = $1. Voting will begin on September 9th, so stay tuned!
Voting is open from September 9th until September 22nd when the finalists are paired down to the 4 males and 4 females with the most votes. Finalist voting will then continue through 12:00pm on September 29th, though votes will no longer be publicly posted. The Grand Prize winners, Canine King and Queen, will be revealed on Sunday, October 1st at Canine Carnival. (P.S. Get your Carnival tickets HERE so you don’t miss the fun!)
Spread the word and best of luck to all of the nominees!
