We received amazing stories from across the country for our Hero Pets GOOD Maker challenge, and narrowed them down to 15 that all share a unique perspective about how pets can make a real difference in our communities.

Check out our 15 finalists and help us choose the winner before voting closes on Monday, December 9 at noon PST. The winner will be the entrant with the highest number of votes and he or she will win:
