Coming to a computer near you today: The 2011 Pettie Awards

The 2011 Petties

The date has finally arrived! The winners of the 2011 Pettie Awards will be announced during a virtual awards ceremony at 5pm Eastern today! You’ve voted and voted and voted some more, and now we’ll find out who the winners are.

I will be watching the ceremony at BlogPaws, so I will find out right along with you who won. Every Pettie winner, and there will be eight, will receive $1000 to be donated to a shelter or rescue group of their choice. I will split my prize money between two groups, Casey’s House, the group who rescued Buckley, and Kitten Associates, the Connecticut based rescue group founded by fellow Pettie nominee Robin Olson of Covered in Cat Hair.

Dogtime Media just announced that they will be giving away additional donations, and you, the viewer, can decide where they should go. All you have to do is tweet. Simply use the hashtag “petties” (#petties) to congratulate your favorite bloggers via Twitter between 5pm and 8pm ET on August 26. The two best tweets, as selected by the official DogTime Petties Awards Committee, will each receive a $1000 donation to a non-profit shelter of their choice. Additionally, one lucky DogTime reader will win $10,000 for his or her favorite shelter. To be eligible, install DogTime’s adoptable iframe between August 26th and October 31st on your website or blog. Winners will be selected November 1.

      Unfortunately, the hurricane interfered with a lot of BlogPaws attendees’ travel plans and a lot of my friends left early to get out of town before Irene hits, but the ceremony went on as planned.
