GDF Costume Contest 2014

**The contest has now ended. Thank you all who entered and donated!**

It is time for the annual Athens GDF Costume Contest!!!!

Last year we made almost $900 during our first costume contest, and we are hoping to raise even more this year!! All proceeds will go towards our new puppy sponsorship! It costs $6,000 to sponsor a future service puppy due to selective breeding, transporation, training, and medical costs. Our last puppy that we sponsored is Dooley, who is currently being raised in Athens, GA.

To help us sponsor a puppy, please select a dog in costume below to vote for. Then, click on the donation link to the right, and after entering your donation amount leave a comment with the name of the dog and raiser that you are supporting. Whoever raises the most money in their dog's name will win a gift basket valued at at least $50!!

Our costume contest will end on October 31st at 11:59 PM.

Thank you so much for supporting Athens GDF in their puppy sponsorship!
