With nearly 300 photos submitted to the Alternative Staffing Dog Days of Summer Contest, we are happy to announce that Ashley McDonald’s picture of her dog, Willard was the grand prize winner and took home a $150.00 gift basket from Dolittles.
We received so many photos, that we couldn’t just choose 1 to be our favorite. So we selected our top ten favorite photos and asked our Facebook followers to vote on their favorite photo by “liking” it over the course of 5 days. Ashley McDonald’s photo received 172 likes!
Before that voting process, throughout the month of August and the beginning of September, people submitted photos of their dogs to Alternative Staffing via Facebook, Twitter and email for a chance to win a gift basket from Dolittles (complete with food, treats, toys, shampoo and a collar and leash, valued at $150.00). Alternative Staffing vowed to donate $1 to the Charleston Animal Society for every photo submitted. With 252 photos submitted, Alternative Staffing will make a donation of $252.00 in honor of everyone who participated in the contest.
Alternative Staffing owner, Jan Cappellini said, “I looked forward to seeing the pictures of dogs that people were submitting every day! It really warmed my heart to see the amount of photos of dogs that were actually Charleston Animal Society rescues. We hope that this contest helped raise awareness for the organization and encouraged pet adoptions and donations.”
Thank you for EVERYONE who participated. Be sure to follow us, because you never know when another contest will pop up!
