Get ready to vote! People and PEDIGREE dog food have teamed up for the PEOPLE’s World’s Cutest Rescue Dog Contest Presented by the PEDIGREE® brand. Per People, 10,000 submissions were received from rescue dog owners around the country.

The contest is narrowed down to 10 finalists and voting is open! You can visit the contest and vote for your favorites between September 2 and September 14. The picks will be narrowed down to 3 and then the final dog will be selected by judges, according to People.

The judges are Carrie Ann Inaba from Dancing with the Stars and The Talk, singer-songwriter Cassadee Pope, and Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer.

The Grand Prize Winner will get the following: a custom photoshoot, feature in People Magazine and on, a year’s supply of dog food from PEDIGREE, and a $1,000 donation to the pet rescue organization of the winner’s choosing.

From Benji, 5 months who needed surgery when he was adopted, to Lunas, who still plays fetch constantly even without part of his lower jaw, there are 10 great animals to vote for! Check out the gallery of the dogs.
