Dogs in Brazil Wins $5,000 Prize Thanks to Care2 Audience | Care2 Causes

Against all odds, the small but powerful rescue group Dogs in Brazil has won the $5,000 first place prize in a contest run by the Australian investment firm Sunsuper. A week ago, I reached out to the Care2 audience to cast their votes and help put Dogs in Brazil in the lead and I couldn’t be more delighted to tell you that your involvement secured the win. “We won,” exclaimed Dogs in Brazil Founder Janice Cabral. “It was tough going for a couple of days because the second place group (a much bigger organization) was gaining big votes at around 600 in one day. Then they slowed down and we streaked ahead. We could not have done it without the Care2 audience.” Funds will be used to enable the organization to expand their kennel area to take in additional homeless street dogs who are injured or in grave danger.
