DOGust is a special day to celebrate shelter and rescue pets, and we are recognizing it with this birthday giveaway for adoptive pet parents and hardworking animal rescue groups.
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) August 04, 2015
1-800-PetMeds®, America’s Largest Pet Pharmacy®, is celebrating the universal shelter dog birthday, DOGust, with a sweepstakes for U.S. pet parents and animal rescues. Five entrants will be randomly selected to win pet birthday packages, and the shelters or rescues they adopted from will each receive 100 adoption kits containing free doses of flea prevention.
The sweepstakes is open to entries now until Aug. 30, 2015, at 11:59 p.m. ET. To enter, pet parents will visit the contest page at http://www.petmeds.org/dogust-birthday-sweepstakes/, fill out the entry form and submit a photo of their pet. It is optional to share the pet’s adoption story as well upon entry. The sweepstakes is open to both cat and dog parents.
The five winners will be randomly chosen and notified on Aug. 31, 2015. Each winner will receive a pet birthday package, containing a $75 gift certificate towards 1-800-PetMeds® products; a 1-800-PetMeds® Max or Molly pet toy; and 1-800-PetMeds® branded products. Each pet birthday package will be tailored to either a dog or a cat.
The shelters and animal rescues the five winners adopted from will each receive 100 adoption kits for their adoptable pets. Each adoption kit contains a free dose of either Advantage II or K9 Advantix II; educational material on the importance of regular flea prevention; and a coupon for ordering through 1-800-PetMeds®. Flea prevention sizes will be customized to fit rescue needs.
“Pets are important members of the family, and unfortunately, many adoptive pet parents don’t know their pet’s actual birthday,” said Erin Gleeson, outreach specialist at 1-800-PetMeds. “DOGust is a special day to celebrate shelter and rescue pets, and we are recognizing it with this birthday giveaway for adoptive pet parents and hardworking animal rescue groups.”
DOGust was founded by the North Shore Animal League America in 2008 to give shelter pets some much-deserved recognition. The DOGust Birthday Sweepstakes Contest is run through PetMeds Cares, 1-800-PetMeds®’ shelter and rescue donations program, to celebrate shelter pets and give back to animal shelters and rescues.
The sweepstakes is open to dog and cat parents who adopted their pets, live in the U.S. and are 18 years or older (void where prohibited). There is a limit of one entry per person.
