The 6th annual 2021 Walkin’ Pets global calendar contest results are in and 13 winners from around the world have been selected by popular vote on the Walkin’ Pets website and Facebook page.
According to a press release, the calendar will feature pets using their Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair to raise pet mobility awareness and celebrate the incredible strength and spirit of handicapable animals.
This year’s contest featured the largest number of submissions in the competition’s history with entries from 27 different countries around the world. Contestants included dogs, goats, sheep, ducks and even a chicken.
Selected as the Cover Dog is Rocky, who was rescued by the Madison Oglethrope Animal Shelter after being hit by a car and surrendered by his owners. Rocky got his new wheels and a second chance. One week later, Rocky was a foster fail and found his forever home. Three-year-old Rocky is getting stronger and his mobility is improving every day.
2021 marks the second year that Walkin’ Pets has selected a Walkin’ Pets Hero of the Year and Rescue of the Year.
Jamie Wallace Griner of the Safe in Austin Rescue has been named the Walkin’ Pets hero for her dedication and compassion for animals and children.
Rescue of the Year, Miracle’s Mission focuses on saving the hardest to adopt, believing that “adopting a special need pet will change your life, your world, your outlook, your priorities and all for the better.”
