Janice Molgaard (far left) of Alta came into Lake Animal Hospital
Wednesday morning with her Australian Shepherd George to put
more money on this lovable, furry entrant in the contest. George
has had $40 submitted in his name, but there are other dogs and
at least one cat with $80 so far. The 120 entrants’ pictures are
posted above. With Janice in the picture is Lori Nehring of LAH.
Lori says some owners are campaigning for their pets via Facebook.
Another woman took to “panhandling” for her cat while she was in
Florida. She sought contributions from strangers, said Lori. “She
got asked to stop.” Beyond the dogs and cats, there are a rabbit,
a chicken and a bird to vote for.
