Enter our America’s Best Tails Contest and win up to $5,000 for your favorite rescue!

American Dog Rescue Foundation and “For the Love of Dogs” TV show present: America’s Best Tails – a contest about rescue animals and more importantly FOR rescue animals.

There are no parameters for the stories we want to read, only that their animal has had a profound effect on them, or they on the animal, in one way or another. It could be a rescue story, it could be a service dog story, it could be a story about their pet they have had from childhood or it could be about a person who has done incredible things because of their love of animals. From all of the submissions, we will choose three stories per week to air on the weekly shows from October 6 – December 15, 2012. At the end of each show, ADR founder Arthur E. Benjamin and his co-host Farah White will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes to the selected stories.

How does this benefit your favorite organization? All the prize money will directly benefit the nominating charity. Each week, we will give out $1,000 for 1st Prize, $500 for 2nd Prize and $250 for 3rd Prize. The season will culminate on December 22, 2012 with our “Holiday Show” and one Grand Prize winner will be selected from the season with an award of $5,000. Again, this prize money will directly benefit the nominating charity!

As you can see, this is a wonderful way to not only raise awareness for your favorite organization but also have the potential to raise much needed funds.
