Underdog Group Wins $5,000 Prize Thanks to Care2

Against all odds, the small but powerful rescue group Dogs in Brazil has won the $5,000 first place prize in a contest run by the Australian investment firm Sunsuper.

A week ago, I reached out to the Care2 audience to cast their votes and help put Dogs in Brazil in the lead and I couldn’t be more delighted to tell you that your involvement secured the win.

“We won,” exclaimed Dogs in Brazil Founder Janice Cabral.  “It was tough going for a couple of days because the second place group (a much bigger organization) was gaining big votes at around 600 in one day. Then they slowed down and we streaked ahead. We could not have done it without the Care2 audience.”

Funds will be used to enable the organization to expand their kennel area to take in additional homeless street dogs who are injured or in grave danger.

Great! there were two good animal ones so I alternated so I could get both in. I know the animals' lives will be a bit easier now as every bit counts.

This is great news. And I am so very glad to read the money will go for helping build kennels for more pets to be housed and cared for.
