7TH ANNUAL ADOPT/RESCUE STROLL CONTEST

June 16th 2012 2:19 pm
[ View A Comments (1) ]

It’s our honor to announce the SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY of the Annual Adopt Stroll and Contest! Originally created in 2006 by Lucia, we are committed to bringing it back each year!! A Special Bark Out to Gibbon, who headed the contest and took on the major share of the workload previously and is helping us get started this year. Arrroooooo!!


So what is this contest about and what do you do? Details are below!

What is the mission of the contest? :?
This is a contest created by Dogster members. It provides an opportunity allowing Dogster members to share their life experience as to how an adopted pup has brought joy, love and fulfillment to one’s life. The mission is simple -- to inspire, motivate and encourage others to consider adoption when adding a member to their family. So many beautiful pups wait in cages and foster homes throughout the world. If this contest can change just one person’s mind to adopt, we have accomplished our goal! Each year we receive many beautiful stories of love and devotion, stories from those who have brought a dog in need into their family and have found much love, some challenges and so many rewards.

Who is eligible to enter, what do you need to do? :?
All Dogsters are welcome!! Pups who have been adopted, awaiting adoption, transport pets or volunteer or who just support adoption! That’s pretty much every pup! BOL! You do not have to be adopted to be eligible.

Your entry MUST include a tagged picture and a diary entry or bio on your page. The entry/bio can be a story, a poem, an essay so long as it's on your page! Feel free to be creative BUT it must reflect adoption – and what it means to you.

How many winners and what are the categories?

There will be a total of ELEVEN WINNERS this year!!!


There are four categories with several places in the main category (Grand Prize, 2nd, 3rd and Five Honorable Mentions) for the MAIN ADOPTION CATEGORY, ONE WINNER for the RAINBOW ANGEL CATEGORY (added in 2008), and ONE WINNER for the SASSY’S SENIOR CATEGORY created especially for Sassy, a beloved Dogster member who went to the Rainbow Bridge this year, a contest judge and strong supporter of the Dogster community and the contest (added in 2010). Pups who are 8 years or older are eligible to enter into this category and we suggest your diary entry be more specific to adoption and senior living, and a category added just last year, SPECIAL NEEDS!!!! To be eligible to enter for Special Needs, you must have a physical disability and/or have a chronic or terminal illness. If you are unsure if you qualify, please contact one of the judges to assist you. We suggest your diary entry be more specific to adoption and special needs!


What's the Deadline? :?
Pictures must be entered before Sunday, July 8th @ 9 pm Dogster time (PST) ~~ that gives you plenty of time to decide on your entry and ask us any questions!


Can you enter more than one picture? :?
Only ONE picture per pup. If you have siblings or fosters, each dog can have one individual photo entered with their own entry/bio. Entering more than one photo for one pup may result in disqualification!


What type of picture? :?
Photos should capture 'the good life'. Whether it's lounging on a comfy couch, playing fetch with your human or wrestling with your siblings - any picture that shows the positive impact of being in a great home! Natural pictures are preferred but you can enter a picture that is animated, edited or anything else to celebrate adoption and rescue. No special consideration is given for edited pictures.

What's the tag for the stroll? :?
For the Main Adoption category, tag your pic ~~ mainadopt12stroll
For the Rainbow Angel Category, tag your pic ~~ Angeladopt12stroll
For the Sassy Senior Category, tag your pic ~~ SSadopt12stroll
For the Special Needs Category, tag your pic ~~ SpNadopt12stroll

Not sure how to tag a pic? Then pmail Georgie for instructions.

Make sure you check out the STROLLS during the contest!
Main Adopt ‘12, Rainbow Angel Adopt ‘12, Sassy Senior Adopt ‘12, Special Needs Adopt ‘12


What about the diary entry/bio? :?
For your diary entry, you must title the entry ADOPT 2012 CONTEST so we know which diary to review. We strongly recommend that if you want to use a previous diary entry, please copy it as one of your more recent entries so it will be easier to locate. If it is in your bio, please be sure you also place the same title at the place of the bio you want us to consider. It can never be too short or too long so long as it is about adoption and what it has meant to you.

We cannot consider an entry that is not appropriately titled. If you have FALLING OBJECTS on your page, please note that some of us judges might have trouble opening your page to read your entry, we will try to notify you but understand that there will be several entries to review. To make it easier, please consider removing the falling objects during the two week judging period.

Not sure how to make a diary entry? Then click HERE to find out how!

IT'S COMING! THE ANNUAL ADOPT/RESCUE STROLL IS RETURNING!!

May 6th 2012 11:59 am
[ View A Comments (1) ]

Guess What?! The Annual Adopt Stroll and Contest is returning! We are coming back for a 7th year! For the last few years, our dear friend Gibbon has done a tremendous job in helping coordinate this huge effort. Unfortunately, Gibbon is not able to assist us on the front lines this year, but he will be lending a paw from behind the scenes.

No worries though! We have a great team of administrators and judges who are energized and ready to go! (More details to follow!)

So, for those of you new to the contest, our mission is easy :D

The contest was created by Dogster members, it provides an opportunity that allows Dogster members to share their life experience as to how an adopted pup has brought joy, love and fulfillment to one’s life. The mission is simple -- to inspire, motivate and encourage others to consider adoption when adding a member to their family. So many beautiful pups wait in cages and foster homes throughout the world. If this contest can change just one person’s mind to adopt, we have accomplished our goal!

At this time, we are coordinating donations and we could really use your help!

Well, River, how can we help?

There are generally no rules as to what people can donate. But here are a few guidelines:

*Monetary donations to charities are encouraged! It really is the intent of the contest to support those who make adoption possible!
*We encourage donations that can be sent electronically such as gift cards, zealies, purchase of item through site to the winner, etc.
*For tangible donations (gift baskets, toys, dog stuff), please know that the winner could be an international dogster member so please be aware before you commit.

I’m in River, I’m in! But who do I tell?!

You can contact myself, River or one of our other administrators, Trudy.

Details about the contest will be coming very soon. Once we coordinate this last piece with the donations, we will be making the contest announcement very soon!

My Mum just couldn't bring herself to tell me about my best friend Buddy....you see, he left for the Bridge....and she just couldn't speak about it out loud....that would make it real.

So, she finally whispered to me yesterday that my friend had made his journey. I am sooo sad....you see, he taught me how not to be an "only child"... :) and even though I am a girl...he taught me to lift me leg!

I spent a lot of time with Buddy and his brother Peanut....my pawrents and I were just in Nashville and I was with them for a few weeks....

My Aunty Pam is very sad, and I wish I was there so I could hug her close and take away her sorrow....

Buddy's smile will be furever etched in my heart.....

xoxo River....

Buddy's ID 368960...

Well...there she goes....just tail wagging and barking about our Dogster... OH!! She paws a pen and paper....writes down all the stuff....gives her my ID#....BOL!!! I sure hope she joins! My Mum is cwazy! BOL!!

We have been on the road now for two months, and the other day my pawrents took me to the beach in St. Augustine....well....I nearly turned myself inside out with excitement! BOL!!!

I love swimming in the lake, and haven't been near the water for months now, so when I saw the water I ran like a crazy pup! WoooHooo!!!

I ran up to the water, and then the tide came in! BOL!! I literally ran backwards!!! Not just a step or two....bunches! I was confused!! My pawrents, and those around all laughed at me!! Then I ran back after the wave BOL!!! Oh My Dawgness! Did I have fun! I chased those waves...then ran backwards....chased them again!

Then....I rolled in seaweed! Pawsome!!! and then the sand!! Pawsome!!!

The only downer fur the day was I had to have a shower when I got home....but not after leaving half the beach worth of sand in the car! BOL!!

Gosh....what a day!
