And the winner is... ๐—ง๐—˜๐—”๐—  #๐—”๐—ช๐—ฆ๐—–๐—”๐—ง! Our feline friends are celebrating with catnip as we speak and of course, they've received bragging rights over the dogs. Maybe next year Team #awsdog can win back the crown but for now, all hail the cats! 

We want to thank our community for their incredible support this Giving Tuesday. Yesterday's friendly competition between dog lovers and cat lovers has brought in an incredible $๐Ÿ๐Ÿ,๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– in funds to support the health and wellbeing of the pets in our care. We have been blown away by the kindness and generosity of our community of supporters this year and every year. ๐“๐ก๐š๐ง๐ค ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ!!!
Sheena was expecting another victory for the dogs today, but so far Team #awscat has remained ahead of the game this Giving Tuesday! However, the nightโ€™s not over yet! If you think canines are more cuddly than cats (just look at how cozy Sheena is!), donate to Team #awsdog now and help your favorite species win the crown! ๐Ÿ‘‘ #givingtuesday #dogsrule
