Salt Lake County is in search of a new K9 Mayor to represent dogs in need and American Dog Rescue has nominated the perfect candidate for the job. After all, who could be better to give a voice to animals in need than former death-row rescue (and longtime Sandy, Utah resident) Tex?
Though he may look tough on the surface as a 100-pound Boxer, Tex has actually overcome long odds just to survive, let alone run for office. Eight years ago, this amazing dog was nearly put down for his severe separation anxiety issues, and now he’s overcoming those nerves to step out for this important mayoral campaign.
Tex is supported by a staff of many, including his owner and ADR founder Arthur E. Benjamin, Humane Society of the United States Utah State Director Sundays Hunt and former Clinton White House staffer Donald Dunn, as well as everyone in the American Dog Rescue organization.
Voting takes place October 1-21, so please be sure to visit http://tex4mayor.com/vote and let your voice be heard!
This fun election, featuring Tex and 13 other dogs running for K9 Mayor, benefits Salt Lake County Animal Services, more specifically its Injured Animal Fund.
The Injured Animal Fund is specifically restricted for use in helping to provide Emergency Medical Care and Attention to seriously ill or injured animals who could not otherwise become adoptable. This can range from broken bones to amputations and everything in between. It is our hope that this fun will expand so that many other animals with expensive and painful injuries may be helped in the future. Every animal that comes in to their care at the shelter is treated as an individual. Every animal is special.
American Dog Rescue Foundation, Tex’s main election supporter, is making a $1 donation on behalf of each voter who is unable to donate to the Fund either due to financial or geographic reasons while designated funds last.
