Christina Rabadan of Scottsdale, GA (a.k.a. @Confessionsofacrazycatlady) is the winner of the Charmed by the Love Goodnewsforpets 20th Anniversary Contest Grand Prize Package. Rabadan, a rescue volunteer, won the second Charmed by the Love contest.
As the recipient of the Grand Prize, Rabadan wins $500 in product from Goodnewsforpets 20th Anniversary Contest partners Purina Tidycats, Sleepypod, and Fetch for Pets. She also wins from Goodnewsforpets two items featuring her choice of her beloved Siamese mix or Syphinx cat breed, a pair of Elena Kreigner designed Heart-Paw earrings and the best yet, a $2,000 donation made in her name will be split between two rescues: Angels Among Us Pet Rescue and Bald and Bully. In designating the donations, Rabadan said,
“This is amazing to win. Thank you to Goodnewsforpets and your industry partners Purina Tidycasts, Sleepypod and Fetch for pets. I do love Angels Among Us and I also love Bald and Bully, which is a smaller rescue that focuses on hairless cats and bully breed dogs. I’ve fostered cats for both organizations, and they’re equally fantastic! I know this year both have been hit hard by the pandemic and donations are down, but they’ve continued doing what they can for the fur- (and furless!) babies!”
The contest was featured throughout 2020 in honor of Goodnewsforpets.com’s 20th anniversary. Pet lovers had a chance to win a versatile Goodnewsforpets.com Heart-Paw Charm exclusively designed by Elena Kriegner, a choice of a prestigious American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (ACVB) Decoding Your Dog or Decoding Your Cat book, a special partner prize, and a personal donation to a local shelter or rescue of each individual winner’s choice. The local shelter or rescue was also highlighted on Goodnewsforpets.com. In joining the contest earlier in the year, then ACVB president said,
“ACVB is pleased to join Goodnewsforpets.com in celebrating its 20th anniversary with the Charmed by the Love contest. Unwanted behavior is the number one reason dogs and cats are relinquished to shelters and we welcome the opportunity to have one more way to educate the public about the importance of solving pet behavior issues with science-based training,”said Ellen Lindell, VMD, DACVB, president of ACVB.
