Vote in the Dogington Post Awards: Best Dog Rescue in 2012

As part of a larger initiative to educate dog owners on proper nutrition, effective training, and other ways to raise a happy and healthy dog, the Dogington Post is reviewing products, toys, foods, treats, and rescue organizations in our first annual Dogington Post Awards Program!

Each week, we’ll present the nominees in a particular category. And, YOU, our readers, will have an opportunity to weigh-in on your favorites, to help us choose a winner!

Nominees from each category for the Dogington Post Award have been selected based on strict criteria including dedication to animal welfare, educating the public on responsible pet ownership, and nationwide initiatives to end the homelessness of animals.

This week, we’re presenting the nominees for Best Dog Rescue in 2012!

It was virtually impossible to narrow this list down to a precious few nominees. Each and every single rescue organization from every corner of the world deserves recognition for the desperately needed work that they do, for every life that they have saved, for every dog that, because of them, has a loving family to snuggle up to, and for every minute of time spent tirelessly devoted to animal welfare. If it was possible to give an award to every rescue organization on the planet, we would. You are all SO deserving.

Our nominees have shown widespread reach, developed national education programs, and have saved the lives of thousands of dogs around the globe.

Dogington Post’s Best Dog Rescue nominees are:

1. Best Friends Animal Society

Founded in 1984, Best Friends Animal Society works nationwide with shelters, rescue organizations, and their members to promote pet adoption, spay and neuter programs, and to educate pet owners on humane treatment, in addition to operating a sanctuary and adoption center.

The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in southwest Utah is the largest no-kill shelter in the United States, recently recognized for taking in many of the dogs that were saved from Michael Vick’s infamous pitbull fighting ring. Many of the former Vick dogs are legally unable to be adopted out, and will spend the remainder of their lives living at the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is home to nearly 1,700 animals receiving special care, medical procedures, or simply taking time to heal emotionally before finding their forever homes.

Best Friends’ mission is to end the senseless euthanization of nearly 4 million healthy (or treatable) and adoptable homeless pets across the country each year. When they began their no-kill initiative, the number of homeless pets killed in shelters around the country was peaking at 17 million per year. Their hope is to get to get that figure down to zero.
