The Glenn Armentor Law Corporation held an online, Facebook-based contest to celebrate Pet Week. Attorneys and staff submitted pictures of their beloved pets to the GALC Facebook page and allowed the public to vote for their favorite pet. For each vote, the Glenn Armentor Law Corporation promised to donate a pound of food to various local shelters and agencies.
Because there was such an overwhelming amount of participation in the contest – almost 4,000 votes – we wanted to make sure our donations were of the best use possible. These amazing foundations are in need of much more than just food, so while we donated 200 pounds of food to each organization, we also gifted them with a $200 monetary donation to spend on other items for their animals!
The donations were given to The Pet Food Pantry (A Division of FoodNet Food Bank of Lafayette), Iberia Humane Society DBA Angel Paws Adoption Center, Animal Rescue Foundation of Louisiana, Inc., Safe Haven Animal Rescue, Wild Cat Foundation, Acadiana Animal Aid, Animal Aid for Vermillion Area, Louisiana Imagine No Kill, Second Chance Paws, Friends of Lafayette Animal Shelter, St. Landry Parish Animal Control and St. Martin Humane Society.
The winning dog was Bindi, who belongs to Attorney Britney Hebert. Runner-ups were Inga (who also belongs to Britney Hebert) and Cesar, who belongs to Attorney Jeremy Bazile.
