ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – TV show host Ellen DeGeneres is known for giving away prizes, and one of them went to two Albuquerque pet owners.
Peggy Bierdermann and Paula Cinnamon entered a PetSmart Ellen Video Contest.
In the video, they say why they love their dog Chaco, who is a therapy dog that visits schools and nursing homes.
“We wanted to make a video of the therapy dog work that he does, and when that contest came up it was a great opportunity to show off what he does,” Bierdermann said.
They ended up winning $10,000 and have donated the money to local shelters and shelters impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Wednesday, they delivered a gift card and supplies to the Eastside Animal Shelter.
They will also donate to the shelter in Salt Lake City where they got Chaco.
