TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Your votes are in, and Pima Animal Care Center has a new fuzzy face.

Oliver received the most ballots out of five finalists for the center's new poster dog.  He'll be on posters encouraging owners to license their dogs.

The winning dog was picked up by shelter workers at a busy intersection with no tag and no microchip.  He's now in a new home.

Shelter workers say getting your dog licensed is not just the law; it also helps staffers reunite you with your pet if he or she gets lost. 

Oliver will be enjoying a free photo session with pet photographer Ann-Eve Cunningham.  He's also staying busy with other jobs.  Since being adopted, Oliver has become a certified pet therapy dog, making regular visits to local hospitals and assisted living homes.  He also raises awareness about pet adoption and rescue as an ambassador for TheShelterPetProject.org, a national public service adoption and rescue campaign.
