Christina Rabadan of Scottsdale, GA (a.k.a. @Confessionsofacrazycatlady) and Angels Among Us Pet Rescue are the winners of the second Charmed by the Love Goodnewsforpets 20th Anniversary Contest. She won the luxurious Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed a Goodnewsforpets.com Heart-Paw Charm and a Decoding Your Cat book. Sleepypod also donated a second Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed to Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, the rescue selected by Rabadan to receive a duplicate prize. Goodnewsforpets also donated $100 on behalf of Rabadan to the rescue. In learning about being named the winner, Rabadon said,
“Thank you again for choosing me to win your amazing prize package! Smeagol is an adventure cat (he loves hiking and going to the beach!) but he never does well on car rides, so I’m very excited to try out the SleepyPod. The heartpaw charm is super cute and I can always use an instruction manual on decoding Smeagol’s crazy shenanigans! I know Angels Among Us Pet Rescue will very much appreciate the monetary donation and also the donated SleepyPod. They are a foster-based rescue organization in Atlanta and are frequently pulling adoptable cats from rural shelters around the state and transporting them to foster homes, where they get loved on until they are adopted. During these crazy times, many of our rural shelters had to close to public adoptions so AAU is one of the few organizations giving hope to animals at these shelters. Thank you!!!”
