2012 Petties: Vote for bloggers, nominate a volunteer

Attention, pet enthusiasts!

Nominees for the 2012 Petties — the annual awards recognizing the best pet bloggers — have been announced! Voting is now open in each of the ten categories, so cast your ballot once a day, every day, now through July 31.

And this year we’re introducing our $10,000 Unsung Hero Award as part of the Petties extravaganza. That’s right, we’re donating ten grand to a worthy animal shelter or rescue in honor of one dedicated individual.

Know a volunteer who deserves to be recognized for his or her commitment to animal welfare? Starting July 23 through August 17th, you can nominate that person for the Unsung Hero Award (you need only nominate once). An elite DogTime panel will select the winner who will in turn choose a shelter or rescue to receive a $10,000 donation.

Vote now for your favorite bloggers — and nominate a deserving volunteer…

And check out the 2012 nominees!
