Petplan Pet Insurance, Americas No. 1-rated pet insurance provider, today announced that Louie, a German Shepherd owned by Molly Rapini of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, is Americas most presidential pet and the winner of its Wag the Vote video contest.
Louie ran away with the paw-pular vote for his nomination video, Louie The Best Running Mate Ever. In the video, Louie captured the hearts and minds of the voting public with his story. Diagnosed with a disease of the esophagus when he was just a pup, Louie was unwanted by his breeder and faced an uncertain future. When the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County placed him in a foster home, it saved his life. Louies foster parents adopted him and helped him work through his special needs eventually training him to become an agility phenomenon!
In addition to his paw-litical platform, Louie lobbied for the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County (GSROC) to receive the $5,000 donation from Petplan. GSROC is Louies pet cause because of their work rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing German Shepherd Dogs that have nowhere else to turn a mission that once saved Louies life. As an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff, GSROC relies entirely on donations to continue their life-saving efforts.
