A Competition with a Cause!

For a $99 donation to Big Love Rescue, your pup will be entered into a bracket-style competition with a chance to earn exciting prizes from our sponsors!

Each week, two dogs will face off in an online vote with each week's winner advancing with the goal to be voted the Ulti-Mutt Cutie!
