Vote for OTAT’s Petco Love Stories winners and help save more pets like Poochie and Charlotte – voting ends December 15th!

We had not one but TWO amazing OTAT alums and their adopters submit winning stories in this year’s Petco Love Stories competition. These winning stories are both in the running for the People’s Choice Competition, which could result in a $25,000 award for OTAT to save even more pets like Poochie and Charlotte. Vote before December 15th and spread the word!

You may only vote once per story, but you can (and should!) vote for both stories in the People’s Choice competition. Once you confirm your email address, you can cast multiple votes without re-confirming!
