    Default Please vote for Danny and Ron's Dog Rescue!

    Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta, in addition to being well-respected horsemen in the world of show hunters, also run a fantastic dog rescue.

    Danny and Ron's Rescue is one of the charities involved in the FTI Charity Challenge at WEF this month. Please take a moment to vote for them to get the top prize. They've placed more than 3,000 dogs in new homes in the last few years. They do a great job.


    It just takes a few seconds to vote. Very simple, no nonsense, no information required. You can vote every day, so please vote daily and share it to spread the word.

    Done! Very easy and really only does take a few seconds. Danny & Ron's Rescue is fantastic, and I will be voting for them every day. Sharing on FB as well.

    Done! Looking at the current results it doesn't look like any of the other charities are doing much campaigning.

    Done! Now I just have to remember to do this every day during the voting period; but since i look at D & R's site daily, that should be a reminder. Now we need to spread the word to non-COTH folks.

    Yay, Danny and Ron's Rescue won the contest by a wide margin!


    Their top prize is a check for $25,000, which I know they will put to great use to help many, many dogs.


    The two runner-up charities behind them in the voting will each get a check for $12,500. I believe one of those charities involved a group that does therapeutic riding.


    Thank you so, so much to everyone who took the time to vote in the contest. I know your help is greatly appreciated!

    That is so fantastic! According to what they posted on their Facebook page, though, they actually won a total of $35K! $25K as fan favorite and $10,000 for competing (whatever "competing" means).

    They sure deserved it!

    Yes, the whole thing was part of a charity event at the horse show in Wellington, Florida. There was a jumper class tonight with 34 teams, each comprised of three riders, representing different charities. So the team riding to benefit Danny and Ron's Rescue won at least $10,000 of the prize money in the jumper class. Plus the $25,000 for the contest that we voted for online.

    Many, many Milkbones!
