We asked and you answered! Thanks to everyone who entered our #ShowUsYourFoster contest. Hundreds of entries poured in, making it that much more difficult for our celebrity judges to choose a winner. So much so that we had to extend the deadline for them, and chose 9 runners-up of both dogs and cats!

Drumroll… it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for:

Put your paws together and join us in congratulating the top dog winner, chosen by Dr. Marty Becker, Princess from Ventura Animal Services in Southern California! And the top cat winner, chosen by the famous Jackson Galaxy is Chewy from Colony Cats and Dogs of Dublin, Ohio!

Each will receive $50 towards a Facebook ad to help find them a forever home in their location and will be featured as the stars of our Facebook cover photo for the week.

But wait, there’s more! Each runner-up will also receive their own Facebook ad worth $50 that is targeted in their geographic area.
