Thank you to all who participated in Dawg Madness this year! We hope you enjoyed the contest and look forward to next March!
 

Which pet has the most Butler spirit? Let's find out!

Here’s how the contest works:

We asked Butler graduates and fans to submit pictures of their cat or dog showing off their Butler spirit, and we randomly selected 16 pets to participate. These 16 pets will go head to head to determine which pet has the most Butler spirit! Starting March 9, we will post a Facebook poll for every pair of pets on our Facebook page. Butler alumni and friends are encouraged to vote for their favorite pet. The dog or cat who earns the most votes during a round will move on to the next round—leading up to the final round, where the winning pet will earn a pet-themed Butler prize pack! We encourage you to share the post of your favorite pet on your own Facebook page with the hashtag #DawgMadness.

*Due to limited number of bandanas, participants with a picture of multiple pets will only receive one bandana per household.

 

Round 1: March 9–14 16 cats and dogs compete against one another to make it to the next round
Round 2: March 16–21  8 pets compete
Round 3: March 23–28 4 pets compete
Final Round: March 29–31  Championship between final 2 pets
