Rescue me: the Winners

by Jen on June 17, 2011

Sharing our homes with these fine creatures makes us winners, one & all, sure,

but in this contest somebody’s walkin away with the Grand Prize.


Keep on smilin’, Lola, you did it!  138 Likes earns you a Fetching Tag & 15 custom tags for the non-profit rescue of your choice.


And Stud Muffin, 121 Likes earns second place for you:  your own Fetching Tag and 10 tags for the non-profit rescue of your choice!

The Tagmaker’s choice award was a tough decision.  Your stories of rescuing a mutt that ended up saving you, & bringing home a dog that led you into a whole new passion brought us tears & laughter.  Thank you for sharing your tales.

For many of us,  deciding to rescue a pet & then choosing exactly which pet to rescue can be arduous.  For our winner, simple resonance made her decision a snap:


This is Stella. I adopted her from the Eastbay SPCA in Jan 2010. She was found with a broken leg that had to be amputated. I was born with a congenital amputation and walked on prosthetic legs since age 1. So when I was looking for a dog and saw her it just made sense! Then in April 2010 I fell and had to have part or my femur amputated. I am learning to walk again, now as what I call a “street cred” amputee. It has been more difficult then I predicted and can’t imagine going through it without my nurse Stella. Between the two of us we have four legs, she completes me!

Congratulations, Stella!  You win a Double Agent from Paco Collars!

My dog Baxter is one of the winners, how do we contact you to let you know the rescue we’d like the tags sent to?

Hi Jen,
I wonder if I missed out with my timing here. I had just ordered a tag while this was all going on. I requested a donation to Second Chance Animal Rescue as part of the standard Stray Gold Program when I ordered my tag…can get a 25% donation ( instead of the normal 20%) because we entered the Rescue Me contest? If I did miss out, then I am very happy with the normal donation….but the more money that Second Chance Animal Rescue receives the better!Every percent count.
We LOVE our Fetching Tags!!
