The blog has moved (again)!

I know, I know, I moved from blogger to wordpress not long ago, but I’ve moved to a new (permanent) home, and I think when you see it you’ll know why. It’s better, I promise. It’s still under construction, but I love it already.

So change your bookmarks:

FBRN Photo Contest Part 1!!

Filed under: animal rescue,charity,photography — melissapalomo @ 5:32 pm

I am hosting a contest for FBRN dogs! I’ve included a photo of each foster pup that has come across my screen in the month of May- these may be current fosters, recently adopted, on the available page, or in one case, recently deceased. These photos were not taken by me, they were taken by their foster parents.

Please take the opportunity to look through the photos, you can click on each one and it will take you to a larger version that includes the name of the dog in the title.

After you have looked through the photos, please take a moment to leave a comment to vote for which dog you think has the best photo. This photo can be the best, in your opinion, for any reason- technical aspects, composition, whatever reason you feel EXCEPT it cannot be based on the cuteness of the dog! (Sweet Roma would take the prize if that were the case!)

You must post a name and email address in the comments- don’t worry, I won’t send you anything! No anonymous comments will be counted.

There will be three winners:

1st prize- $25 sponsorship and a toy for the winning pup!
2nd prize- $20 sponsorship for the pup
3rd prize- $15 sponsorship for the pup

If that pup has already been adopted, the donation will be made in honor of the pup to sponsor another dog.

In the next few days, I will also post several entries of personal pups, but I want to make sure that the FBRN pups get their chance to shine!

Voting will be open until Sunday night at midnight.
