“It’s all about acceptance, having fun, celebrating our uniqueness – and SAVING LIVES!” –Road Dogs & Rescue
Ain’t No Stopping Me!
This contest is for animals that can be considered unstoppable. Whether they survived against all odds, defied their limitations, or bring joy to everyone regardless of their past, these dogs are truly inspirational. Despite everything these animals have been through, they’ve refused to give up.
Just Because I’m Beautiful
All animals are beautiful, so just because some might not look or act as expected doesn’t mean they should be treated any differently. If you think your dog is beautiful in their own unique way, then you should enter them in this category.
Just Because I’m Awesome
Not only are all animals beautiful, but some might even have a special talent. Can your dog dance, sing, or do special tricks? Or are they just awesome with each and every thing they do? If so, this is the chance to give your dog some time to shine.
Fanciest Fancy Pants and Bad Ass Bling
This contest is specifically for dogs with diapers, wheelchairs, and casts. Just because they need these items on a day to day basis doesn’t mean they can’t dress to impress! This category is looking for animals that have adorably accessorized in their own special way.
Greatest Action Adventure Star
Some animals love to run around and explore regardless of the circumstances. Even if your dog is blind or only has three legs, there is no reason why they can’t hike or swim. If your dog loves to exercise or go on exciting adventures, then this is the perfect category for them.
What are the Prizes?
Of course, the best prize of all is knowing that you have helped animals in need, but there are still other exciting rewards that contestants can win.
The grand prize is for the most votes overall regardless of the category. This winner receives $1,000, a year’s supply of Boss CBD, and a $150 iHeartDogs.com gift card!
Best in Category
The most votes overall in each category will also win exciting prizes. Each category winner will receive $100 and a $75 iHeartDogs.com gift card!
Every week that the contest goes on, there will be weekly winners as well. These winners will receive special, sponsored prizes and giveaways each week.
