The search is on! Nominate your
dog as the 2021 Bark Brew Spokesdog. The winning dog's image, name and bio will be featured on a can of amazing Bark Brew beer. Bark Brew is a limited small batch release by Columbia Craft Brewing Company in Columbia, South Carolina. The dog who receives the most votes - the winning Spokesdog - will also win other fabulous prizes. And it's all for a great cause - to help Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services (PAALS) provide service dogs for people with disabilities.
Nominate Your Dog!September 1st - October 16th
Submit a favorite photo of your dog and a minimum $10 donation and, in your dog's words
, tell us why he or she would make the perfect Spokesdog for Columbia Craft Brewing Company - and dogs everywhere. Your $10 donation gives your dog 10 votes right off the bat. If you'd like to donate more, that's fine too; each dollar you donate equals another vote. Note: Your dog does not have to be a service dog, therapy dog, police dog or show dog - all
dogs are eligible, all ages, colors, makes and models. Rescues are the best,
and it would be awesome if in your dog's bio you also mentioned the rescue organization that made such a difference in your dog's life - and yours!
Vote For Your Dog!September 1st - October 16th
Vote for your dog - and for your friends' dogs, or any dogs that seem cool - during that same period. Each vote cast is just a $1 donation to PAALS. Share your dog's entry with everyone on your social media pages to boost your dog's chances of winning. Have fun browsing the contestants each week with your friends, co-workers, kids and grandkids.
At the end of the six-week contest, the top vote-getting dog wins a fabulous prize package including: their image, name and bio on Columbia Craft Brewing Company's 2021 Bark Brew beer can; a professional photo shoot and an 11x14 canvas print of their soon-to-be-famous Bark Brew image from professional photographer Rob Wilson; a $100 gift certificate for canine products from Little Barks Boutique; a case of Bark Brew beer from Columbia Craft Brewing Company; and two adult tickets to the exciting PAALOWEEN costume party for PAALS, Oct. 29th at The River Center in Columbia. The second and third place finalists will also each win prizes including a $50 gift certificate for canine products from Little Barks Boutique and two adult tickets to PAALOWEEN, Friday, October 29th
. The winning Spokesdog and the two finalists will also be recognized at a special late fall event at Columbia Craft Brewing Company on the day the brewery cans the beer. This event may be covered by WIS-TV (the contest media sponsor) and other members of the pup-parazzi.
This celebration of dogs everywhere is sponsored by PAALS along with four dog-loving Columbia, South Carolina-based businesses - Columbia Craft Brewing Company, WIS-TV, Little Barks Boutique, and Rob Wilson Photography.
Thank you for participating, and good luck
