Public media poodle Waldo posed a challenge of $25,000 during the month of May 2019 to other #PubMediaPets. Thank you to all those who got in on the fun, took Waldo up on his challenge and submitted a photo of your #PubMediaPets watching PBS, enjoying NPR or just being simply adorable! WGCU received photos of pets of all kinds from across the country. Now, it’s time to vote for WGCU’s favorite #PubMediaPets.
