KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (PRWEB) September 28, 2005
Always thinking of great ideas for your pets? PetSafe challenges the public to enter innovative, quirky, fun or helpful pet ideas between October 1st and November 30th, 2005, on http://www.ideafetch.com, for the chance to win $40,000 along with having their idea developed into product and sold at PETCO stores nationwide. ItÂs all part of PetSafeÂs first pet ÂideaÂ contest called IdeaFetch. In addition to entering ideas, the public is invited to help select the contest winner by voting online for their favorite entry.
PetSafeÂs IdeaFetch is a fun, innovative, consumer-driven contest designed to catch new pet product ideas that enhance the relationship between pet owners, families and their pet(s) and ultimately improve a petÂs quality of life.
ÂAs far as we know there has never been a contest as broad as IdeaFetch or one that allows consumers the opportunity to vote,Â shares Doug Grindstaff, PetSafe vp of marketing & business development. ÂThe great part is you donÂt have to be an engineer or have financial backing to enter; all you need is an idea and love for pets. PetSafe then brings the winning pet product idea to life.Â
Consumer votes determine the top 100 pet ideas entered on http://www.ideafetch.com. A panel of PetSafe judges will then review and select the top ten from that group. From the top ten, three winners will be chosen. The second place winner catches $5,000 and the third place winner fetches $2,500 with no guarantee that their ideas will be commercialized.
If ÂideasÂ arenÂt your thing, the IdeaFetch Web site also distributes $15,000 worth of PetSafe instant-win discount coupons and collects visitor Âpet problemsÂ. Instant-win codes can be obtained from petco.com, flyers at any PETCO register, or PetSafe Electronic Training Kiosks, located at PETCO stores nationwide; enter the instant-win code at http://www.ideafetch.com for a chance to win a prize.
