How to Help a Shelter Dog of Your Choice

How to Help a Shelter Dog of Your ChoiceIf finding a way of how to help a shelter dog is something that interests you, I have some good news to share.

As you would no doubt be aware, great numbers of dogs are without a loving home. Dogs such as those suffer so much, some to the extent it doesn’t bear thinking about.

Fortunately, many homeless dogs are rescued by various charities and societies set up just for the purpose of saving the lives of abandoned pets.

So, I am very happy to introduce you to Mutt Madness a fantastic campaign to be found on Barkvet.com

What Mutt Madness is About

The Mutt Madness programme was set up for the purpose of helping shelter dogs become adopted dogs. As all dog lovers agree, each and every dog deserves a loving home life. With the help of Mutt Madness, each of the sixteen dogs seen on the Embarkvet website will have the opportunity of being adopted.

The programme commenced on Monday, 9th March and I understand that one little puppy has already been adopted. How wonderful is that!

You, too, could be fortunate to find the right puppy to adopt. If you are interested in helping a rescue dog, it would be great if you would visit EmbarkVet and vote on one of sixteen dogs displayed on that page.

As you will see, each dog is matched with another dog. When clicking on any one image, the details of that particular dog appear below.

The plan is to vote for just 1 dog out of the sixteen dog images. Your vote does not mean you are interested in adopting that particular puppy, or any dog at all.

The idea of casting your vote is, the dog that gets the most votes by the end of the 4 weeks, will receive a $1,000 donation from Embark for their shelter.

Before Voting Make Sure to Study the Match-Ups

A bio is included for each of the sixteen dogs.
When clicking on an image, the bio of that dog appears below.

How to Make Your Vote

Look for Current Match: 1/8.

Click on an image. This will bring the next matched pair into that position. The current match will change to 2/8, and so on.

To register your vote:

  • Make sure the dog you wish to vote for appears with its matched partner.
  • Beneath each of those two dogs is where you can vote for the dog of your choice.
  • Enter your name and email address. (These are necessary to register your vote).
  • Click on Submit Your Vote
  • Only 1 vote can be made each week.

Mutt Madness Runs for 4 Weeks

As previously mentioned, this programme commenced on Monday, 9th March 2020.

If you place your vote by 15th March, your next votes can be made on the weeks commencing:

March 16th, 23rd and 30th.

Again, to vote for the dog of your choice, please CLICK on THIS LINK

Dogs of Many Breeds are Involved

I have not overlooked the fact this website is about the Miniature Schnauzer Breed. As a lover of dogs of all breeds, I could not ignore the possibility of any dog finding a new home for the rest of his of her life. All dogs, irrespective of breed, thrive on the love, care and companionship within a family.

As requested by Embarkvet, please ask your friends to vote so as to help spread awareness for each dog.

Thank you for visiting this website and for your interest in these wonderful dogs finding a new home.

  1. Hi Valerie,

    Thank You for this great post and all the help you give our internet community.

    I really want to thank you for raising your concerns about us living in New York. At the moment, I cannot write on WA. Fortunately we are well so far, and staying indoors in isolation.

    Please watch m new You Tube video “Coronavirus in Chelsea”. https://youtu.be/4rnTT-L4rTk

    PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO WITH AS MANY. MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE URGING THEM TO WATCH IT FROM BEGINNING TO END – OUR SITUATION IN NYC APPLIES TO CITIES ALL OVER THE WORLD, WE’RE ALL THE SAME. LET ME TELL YOU WHY. WE ARE NOW LIVING IN A REAL LIFE HORROR MOVIE, LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

    The US has now passed China as the most infected country in the world, and my hometown of NYC is the “hub” of infection with a 5x higher “attack rate” (those who get the virus out of the population) than any other city in the world. With over 85,000 coronavirus cases in NYC, we have 8x more Covid-19 cases than any other state, and close to half of all cases in the entire country.

    There are simply TOO MANY people who are still taking this pandemic too casually and are not practicing social distancing, and equipment will soon be unable to meet demand of the increasing number getting sick. Governor Cuomo has been begging to the federal government for desperately needed ventilators, gloves, and gowns, etc. but our pubescent president so far will not comply.

    Stay safe, stay home, and continue to practice social distancing. It’s the only way until they get a vaccine. And then Pray.

    • Hi Kaju,

      Thank you for visiting my website. These are certainly horrific times we are living in and your video reveals that with absolute certainty. To see New York in such a lowly condition and compared with your video just 4 months ago celebrating the Christmas season. Who could have imagined decline such as the present.

      Not only does Coronavirus affect the humans, I imagine it will rob those beautiful little shelter dogs from finding a new home soon.

      New Zealand has been in complete lock-down since 25th March. I noticed in your video a couple walking freely in New York, with absolutely no protection. There are a few like that in this country too. It is absolutely vital that people comply with protection as you are doing, Kaju. That is the only way the world has a chance of overcoming this virus. May our prayers be answered.
