Best in Shelter Voting Has Begun!

Posted on: Thursday June 14

Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) will showcase four adoptable rescue dogs in the first-ever Best in Shelter online dog show beginning June 14. The four dogs- Cowboy, Daphne, Harley and Pepper- will compete against dogs from other local animal welfare organizations for a $50,000 grand prize. Second prize is $25,000 and third prize is $15,000.

Daily voting takes place between June 14-17 at Anyone can log on and vote for one of the LDCRF dogs to be named “Best in Shelter” with just a few clicks.

The “Best in Shelter” contest is sponsored by award-winning mystery writer Martha Grimes. Grimes, a long time advocate for animals, conceived of the idea while watching the Westminster Dog Show and wondering if there was a way to bring that kind of attention to shelter dogs. The contest aims to shine a spotlight on the amazing animals available for adoption in local shelters.

Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation, the only volunteer-run organization competing, is pleased to present its candidates.
