  4. What a terrific and truly generous way to celebrate your 10th Anniversary, and reward pets and their people, needy animals and their care-givers and rescue organizations! Goodnewsforpets has reached out and touched people, deserving animals and pet dedicated organizations large and small across the country and brought them together. Growing up the ASPCA was the very first organization our family ever turned to when our pets were in need of critical care, and they were always extremely responsive and compassionate. They saved our dogs life when he chased a ball and ran off a cliff back in the 70’s, consoled us when our
    hamster suffered respiratory failure. We never knew of anywhere else to turn back then and when we found abandoned, injured animals or strays they were always there to turn to for help.

    Ms. Germinder you and your staff have contributed greatly to the cause for all companion animals, pet awareness, health and education etc, on all levels during the past decade. Please accept our families gift of genuine gratitude!

    The contest judges obviously had a really tough job with so many deserving contestants, and no doubt sacrificed a good portion of their holiday season for the cause. They did a great job!

    Everyone who cares for and loves their pets and animals in need is a winner.

    • On behalf our team, we thank you. We hope everyone gets a chance to read the stories. We’ll be doing a Top 10 countdown shortly to highlight the different donations that are being made.
