National Mutt Day was started to raise awareness of the plight of mixed breed dogs in shelters and to educate the public about the many deserving mixed breed dogs that need homes. 1-800-PetMeds supports the adoption of mixed breed dogs and is proud to donate to shelters and rescue groups around the country through the PetMeds Cares program. The #PetMedsMutt giveaway will recognize National Mutt Day and the many unique pets that have been rescued from shelters.
“Being a pet parent to a rescue animal is a special bond we know many of our customers are proud to experience,” said Alex Irvin, online programs director at 1-800-PetMeds. “We support the adoption of mixed breed pets and wanted to help bring awareness to what National Mutt Day means to the pet community. “
All photo entries into the #PetMedsMutt giveaway can be viewed on the 1-800-PetMeds Facebook page in the tab marked “Show Us Your #PetMedsMutt.”
Photos do not need to be of mixed breed pets, or mutts, to qualify. The giveaway is open to pictures of all pets, regardless of breed. Participants must be 18 years or older and residents of the U.S. to win.
