Melvin’s Project Joy – giveaway five!


Time for more giving!  This month, we are adding a little something! Keep reading to find out more.

As a reminder, each month, we do a giveaway that celebrates the unique nature of our furry friends. There are monthly categories (so far we have done: seeing impaired, hearing impaired, less than four legs, and anxiety dogs). If your dog does not fit into one month’s category, do not fret, we have a pretty all-encompassing list for the entire year – we eventually got you covered!

November is Adopt a Senior month! My favorite month of all!  So this month we celebrate: Senior dogs!  Enter your senior and tell us what you love about them!  If you rescued them as a senior, share that too!  Have a foster that’s a senior, enter them! You know this household is on the hunt for a senior that Jake will accept! This entire endeavor of Melvin’s Project Joy, is the result of the love I have for my senior angel.

Here is how it works…

This goes beyond just a giveaway (but yes, there is of course some loot!). Our goal is to remind each other that we are all in this crazy life together. That through these giveaways, we can all bring empathy into play. As you share stories of your senior dogs, read the stories of others. You may nod, and realize just how much we all have in common. You can message others and share your experiences and advice. Friendships will form. Support can be shared. Joy will be spread!

Share your senior dog (your dog’s name, a photo. and the story about their awesomeness) on either our Facebook page containing this post, on Sirius Republic’s Facebook page when they share this post. If you are not of the Facebook world, you can email your info to No matter how you submit your info, you will be entered to win.


We will pick one female and one male winner at the end of November! And here is the little extra I mentioned, we will also donate some collars to a rescue group that focuses their LOVE and SOUL on senior dogs – THE MR. MO PROJECT! If you have some free time (or extra funds), hop over to their site and give back – they do the most amazing work!  You can find them HERE.  

Next month, it will be a new category!

  1. Love the picture of Melvin! Duke’s face is nearly white and he’s the youngest of the crew at only 7. The Mr. believes that only Ozzy & Cocoa are seniors at 15 1/2, though they still act like kittens after 8 years here. The Dude was the only cat we got as a kitten, it’s seniors for life now! 🙂
