Voting is now OPEN for the 2013 Hero Dog Awards. We are honored to be one of the 23 nationwide charity partners of the American Humane Association. We've earned that distinction thanks to our quality, innovative programs — like our Abilities Through Agility program at ChildServe. We've been chosen by two nominees as their charity partner in the Therapy Dog category. If Dutchess or Patch win their category, Paws & Effect receives a donation of $1,500. If either wins the entire competition, we receive a $5,000 donation — funds that would help us to accomplish and expand our programming. You can vote once per day, per email address, per category. Pick one and VOTE!
