Congratulations to Our Winners!

We’d like to officially congratulate Frank, Lucky, Scarlett and Tiny as our first, second, and tied-for-third winners. Thanks to them and to everyone who entered, shared, or voted, more than $3,500 was raised to help homeless dogs and cats find love of their own. Check out their winning mugs and incredible rescue stories below!

Frank squareFIRST PLACE: Frank

FRANK’S STORY: Frank was adopted in March 2013 after his family said goodbye to their beloved old man kitty. Frank was discovered by a rescue group after being abandoned by his previous owner with a serious eye condition; unfortunately his eyes couldn’t be saved and both were removed, leaving him blind. Don’t let his lack of eyesight fool you though! Frank is incredibly smart and gets around as good as any cat with eyes. “Every day with Frank is a rewarding and inspirational one,” writes guardian Jami Vincench, “and we love and adore him with our whole hearts.”

Winner Second Place Lucky 49407SECOND PLACE: Lucky

LUCKY’S STORY: Lucky was just a puppy when his family returned him to the pound upon discovering their puppy was deaf. Along came the Adornatos, who adopted this adorable deaf puppy and took him in as part of their family. They give him a lot of love, the family’s children have worked hard teaching him hand signals.

 

Scarlett squareTHIRD PLACE (tie): Scarlett

SCARLETT’S STORY: Scarlett was found wandering the streets of Hayward five years ago. From a very frightened and nervous little dog, she has grown into a loveable, feisty terrier and is the boss of the Moss household! Some recent joint surgery meant she was out of action for a while, and had to wear the dreaded ‘cone of shame,’ but she was soon back on her feet, up and running and pursuing her favorite hobby…chasing squirrels.

Tiny squareTHIRD PLACE (tie): Tiny

TINY’S STORY Tiny is also a member of the Moss family…in fact, their lives have revolved around him since he joined their household 4 years ago. Although small in stature, Tiny has a huge heart and a loveable personality. One of his favorite hobbies is walking in the park at the Pleasanton Senior Center. It’s too far to walk all the way there, so each dog walk is accompanied by his second favorite hobby – a ride in the “dogmobile!”
