We're getting down to the wire. After starting with more than 10,000 rescue dogs, we're down to the 10 finalists in People magazine's World's Cutest Rescue Dog Contest, which is presented by Pedigree. 

Our sister site People.com has done the hard work—reading the stories of thousands of entries and having to do the incredibly difficult job of eliminating some. And now it's up to the voters. You get to help decide which pup will be 2021's World's Cutest Rescue Dog. 

You can find out more about the 10 finalists below. The top three vote-getters will go before a panel (made up of celebrity judge Megan Hilty and judges from People and Pedigree), which will decide the winner.

What's at stake? Plenty. The winner will receive a custom photo shoot; a feature on People.com and in People magazine; a year's supply of Pedigree dog food; and a $1,000 donation to the pet rescue organization of the winner's choice. 

Voting—which you can do here—is open through Sept. 29. You can vote once a day for your favorite dog—or spread the love around day by day. Let's meet the finalists:
