Kelly and I are participating in “America’s Favorite Animal Shelter” contest sponsored by Care2, ASPCA and Adopt-a-Pet. Whether you are a dog and cat lover, animal right advocate or community member, you can help your favorite animal shelter win $15,000! The more votes your shelter gets, the better your shelter’s chances of winning.

I cast my vote for Homeward Bound Dog Rescue, a busy rescue shelter near me. I know some great bloggers volunteer for this rescue. And, some of their dogs will be featured in my upcoming video book trailer!

To join me in voting for Homeward Bound, simply click here:
