Tex For Mayor 2014

Tex is one of 14 dog candidates running for a two year term to serve as the first canine mayor of Salt Lake County. American Dog Rescue Foundation and its founder Arthur Benjamin need YOUR votes to help Tex win!

Tex is a death-row rescue from eight years ago. From death row to possibly becoming the first K9 Major of Salt Lake City! Read all about Tex’s campaign and initiatives at http://tex4mayor.com, and then be sure to cast your vote for Tex.

Votes are cast October 1-21 by making a donation to Salt Lake County Animal Services, benefiting their injured animal fund (American Dog Rescue Foundation, Tex’s main election supporter, is making a $1 donation on behalf of each voter who is unable to donate to the Fund either due to financial or geographic reasons while designated funds last). The donations go to a great cause, providing Emergency Medical Care and Attention to seriously ill or injured animals who could not otherwise become adoptable.
