#RescuesRock Forever

Each year 6 million or more dogs go into rescue and many never come out so four years ago, we started the #RescuesRock program showing that Rescues can make wonderful pets. This year’s video “Forever” pays tribute to the love of a dog and raises money and awareness for rescue dogs, inspired by Susan’s Kilo the Pug.

See more about the song and inspiration here.

We won Best Pet Video of the Year last year with the Talent Hounds anti-discrimination video “Love like a Dog” which I really love.

We were also a finalist in 2016 with the pilot of the Millennial comedy “The Backseat Barkers”.

Winners will be revealed in an exclusive red-carpet ceremony at the ninth annual pet-friendly BlogPaws Conference (http://www.blogpaws.com) which will be taking place April 18 through April 20 in Kansas City, Missouri at the Sheraton Kansas City.  Winners will receive a trophy, recognition by peers, social coverage, press coverage and more.
