No. 1-rated Petplan pet insurance is calling all Re-puplicans and Demo-cats to feature their pets on film! Petplan’s “Wag the Vote” video contest will award a cash prize of $5,000 to the pet who leads the pack with the most votes.

In the dog-eat-dog world of politics, Petplan’s ‘Wag the Vote’ video contest offers a fun, tongue-in-cheek take on the election season, and gives pet parents the chance to show off their pet, win cash – and help pets in need. Treats all around!

To enter the race, pet parents nominate their pet by posting a short (three minutes or less) campaign video showcasing their dog’s or cat’s paws-itively presidential personality. Then, they rally friends and family to “Wag the Vote” and help them win. Each candidate “lobbies” on behalf of a favorite animal charity, who will receive a $5,000 donation if they are named the winner, making the top prize for America’s most presidential pet a whopping $10,000 value!

For pet parents who need a little inspiration to get on the campaign trail, Petplan has created a sample video starring Benny the Pug, Petplan’s resident pet-itorial intern. In the video, Benny promotes his plan for solving unemployment, health care and economic woes and promises a brighter, better tomorrow for all. Pet parents can also use campaign categories for inspiration, including:

  • Fun-raising
  • Digging up dirt
  • Shaking paws
  • Official campaign ad
  • Lobbying for treats
  • Running mates

Entries are due by Nov. 8, 2012. For more information about how to enter the race, official contest rules and a peek at who is already in the running, visit http://www.wagthevote.com.
