For high school students across the country, it’s time to C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E the impending end of the school year with prom.
But an older set is getting in on the tiara and taffeta fun, too.
The Grey Muzzle Organization, an animal welfare organization dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk senior dogs, is hosting its own prom, where all the attendees are stylish senior dogs.
For the group’s first-ever senior dog prom, they put the word out to all animal lovers that they were looking for submissions to this unique event. Applicants poured in from older dogs across America, who were happy to embrace a moment to dress up and look dapper.
After sorting through all the wonderful submissions, The Grey Muzzle Organization is working to put together its Prom Court, but needs your help.
Take a look at all the finalists for Prom King, Prom Queen and Cutest Couple. While many of these senior pups have forever homes, several are still looking, much like thousands of older dogs currently living in shelters.
Take a look at all the furry frontrunners, and then cast your vote here.
