Never Shock a Puppy Final Report

We’re happy to make a final report on the successes of the 8-week Never Shock a Puppy pet blogger campaign of 2010. Our biggest thanks to everyone who helped us.

Fund-Raising: We surpassed our goal!

Perhaps the most visible result from the campaign is the $2,640 we raised through both online and offline donations to support the Humane Society of Boulder Valley’s upcoming No-Choke Challenge.

Nearly 50 individual donors contributed money. Serious points for creativity go to a friend in Colorado raised $340 for us by asking guests at her birthday party to make donations instead of giving gifts. Thank you, Angela Cicero, for including Never Shock a Puppy in your birthday celebrations.

We’d be remiss if we did NOT recognize the contributions (both campaign-long sponsorships and cash donations) of our top TWO financial supporters:

Anthony Holloway from

Candy Blakeslee from Best Friends General Store

And, many thanks to DogTime Media for letting us donate the $500 prize from the Best Dog Blog Award to Humane Society of Boulder Valley.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for EVERYTHING!

Helping Real Dogs

Thanks to our many sponsors and prize donors, we gave away FIVE terrific prize packages to these amazing dogs:

Kaiju, from Cambridge, Massachusetts

Maggie and Tai, from Cranbrook, British Columbia

Shadow, from New Port Richey, Florida

Manchego and Brie, from Delta, British Columbia

Fly and Banner, from Dayton, Indiana

Stay Tuned

We haven’t yet decided what (if anything) we’ll continue to do on this topic. We’ll post again, as news warrants.
