Messages From PetSafe

Welcome to your community page!

The contest is off to an amazing start with over 300 communities nominated in the first 24 hours! This community page will serve as your contest hub for voting, photos, events and even important notifications from the PetSafe team. We'll constantly be working on the site throughout the contest to make sure it's a smooth nominating and voting process for you. Also, please note that the vote counter can take anywhere from 5-15 min to update depending on site traffic, which is why you may not always see the vote counter increase each time you vote. Don’t worry, it will but may just take a few minutes. Thanks for participating and best of luck to your community!

Other cities were slowly catching up to us before the votes went dark. Keep voting so they don't beat us now!

Dave Walton

Only six days remaining. Don't let the lack of a revised vote count keep you from voting. I am afraid that technique may have discouraged some and made others think it was over. The voting needs to continue!

Chris Miller Williams

Can't see the vote total...haven't been able to for several days but am voting anyway..

Karen Moss

I have tried and tried to vote. I get to the I'm not a robot part and answer correctly and then it kicks me right back t the Sam thing without voting.

Dave Walton

Now we don't know the actual count since we are voting "in the dark". Even more reason to keep pushing for everyone to make that effort to vote twice every day until July 22nd.
