Thank You!

Dear Placing Paws family and friends,

We asked for your participation in the Aftermath K9 Contest and your engagement resulted in a climb from 7th place to 1st place! Over 36,000 votes were entered nationally into the contest. Unbelievable! We could not have done this without YOU! The $5,000 will be going directly to our K9 team's need for additional equipment and training.

Thank you Placing Paws!
