UPDATE: GAIN WON!!!
I hope you don’t mind the group email. I’m just elated. Cartier and all his beauty worked another miracle. As you can see below we won the Grand Prize of the World’s Best Pet Parent Contest. Thank you all for your continued support during these months of voting voting and more voting. It warms my heart that Cartier and all his glory is still helping his fellow greyhounds in spirit.
My warmest regards,
Dana and My Angel Boy Cartier – Mommy still misses you sweet thing
Greyhound adopter Dana Provost adopted a Guam greyhound named Cartier (see photo). In a very short time after coming to the U.S., he became a pet therapy dog and took Las Vegas by storm.
Sadly, Cartier after surviving the cruelties of racing in Guam, succumbed to fatal kidney disease. We’re thankful he was fortunate to come to the U.S. and live his life as a beloved pet before he died.
Dana Provost entered the PETFINDER.COM WORLD’S BEST PARENT CONTEST and has designated the prize money to go to Guam Animals in Need (GAIN). Although a U.S. territory, Guam is like a third-world country when it comes to the way it treats its animals. If it wasn’t for the wonderful volunteers at GAIN and the Greyhound Protection League and numerous U.S. adoption groups and friends, hounds like Cartier would be left for dead.
Please help Dana help GAIN by voting in the Petfinder contest.
The prize money is:
Grand Prize: $10,000
Runner Up: $5,000
Honorable Mention (10 winners): $1,000
