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!
