How it works:

The Dog Days of Summer Challenge (DDoS) is open to all animal related nonprofit organizations and ends at midnight on August 11th.

Your supporters simply pick a square with a paw print, make a donation and upload their absolute most awesome photo of their dog or cat. It could funny, cute, sweet or flat out beautiful.

We apologize to all the other animals out there. They’re wonderful and can be funny, cute, etc. too, but in this case it’s only raining cats and dogs…

Anyone can donate, even if they don’t have a dog or cat or if they don’t want to enter. They can upload any photo they like or we can upload one for them.

Simply reach out to all your supporters and get them to come to your special DDoS GivingGrid, which we’ve already designed for you! All you have to do is click the “Create DDoS GivingGrid” button and then choose your payment processor and you’re ready to go! So easy!

You’ll pick your favorite of all the photos on your GivingGrid and send it to us. We’ll pick our 10 favorites and send them off to 1-800-Pet-Meds, who will pick the grand prize winner, runner-up and third place. All 10 finalists will win stuff! We’ll let you know if your pick won! Complete Rules

What do you and your donors get out of all this?
