Cat's Lifesaving Efforts Win Nationwide Pet Rescue Contest

To honor this amazing tale of greatness, Carrie Counihan from the Door County Humane Society and Jung will be honored live in the main ring prior to the start of the National Dog Show presented by Purina, which airs on NBC on Thanksgiving Day. In addition, Counihan and Jung will receive VIP treatment at the National Dog Show including a backstage tour, exclusive tickets and seating, and the opportunity to have a meet-and-greet with David Frei, expert analyst for the show. As part of the grand prize, Door County Humane Society will be awarded with $5,000 in Purina Pro Plan brand pet food coupons to help support the organization's continued care for animals in need.

"It is small rescue shelters like the Door County Humane Society and Carrie Counihan that see the wonderful potential in rescue pets," said Mike Chirco of the Purina Pro Plan marketing team. "Pudding's story serves as a reminder that all animals, rescue or purebred, have something innately great inside them and with the help of small pet rescue organizations can truly make a positive difference."

This summer, Purina Pro Plan launched the sixth annual Rally to Rescue "Tales of Greatness" Story Contest that celebrates rescue dogs and cats, and the organizations that helped put them on the path to achieve greatness. More than 40 stories were submitted and a judging panel selected the four stories that best captured how these pets have achieved greatness. From September to October, more than 2,000 votes were cast by pet lovers across the country to select the story that inspired them most as the grand prize winner. 

While Pudding's tale is truly inspiring, it is just one of the countless stories that occur every day as a result of the efforts of pet rescue organizations.  To read more of these incredible stories, visit www.facebook/rallytorescue.
