Pet Election 2022

The results are in!

Please join us in welcoming Benjamin, PoCo’s next Pet Ambassador!

Over the course of the month, our five candidates competed with each other in a light-hearted campaign to earn votes . As the pet with the most votes, Benjamin will have the opportunity to represent the pets of PoCo at various events. With a big personality and a penchant for belly rubs, we think he will make an excellent ambassador!

We would also like to award Odie the PoCo Spirit Award, in recognition of the enthusiasm and dedication to PoCo he demonstrated throughout the campaign. Congratulations Odie!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s election. We had many wonderful candidates!
