Every animal organization -- shelter, sanctuary, or other place of safety--- has always had to help animals in the day-to-day disasters they face. But lately such disasters have taken on catastrophic proportions in the form of hurricanes, floods, and wildfires. Although we humans might have a fighting chance in such circumstances, animals cannot outmaneuver devastating wind, water and fire. They need saving. This new Best in Shelter contest is therefore dedicated to rescue. its eight participants make up a tiny proportion of rescue groups and organizations all across the country, many of whom have performed as animal first responders with astonishing speed and devotion. Best in Shelter celebrates all of those who rescue animals from disaster, adversity and abuse
Each sanctuary will choose one animal (or group of animals) to participate
in the contest. One animal will be featured on each day. Vote here!
