New York, NY (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
The Women in the Pet Industry Network Conference, currently taking place from August 14th-16th, 2014, is a national forum for leading pet professionals. In honor of the meeting, Good News for Pets is raffling a stunning sterling silver and amethyst Heart-Paw necklace by Elena Kriegner during the show for an outstanding entrepreneur in the field.
The winner of the necklace will be featured on Good News for Pets and a matching donation will be given to the local pet shelter or rescue of their choice, which will also be highlighted on the site in the shelter section. A follow-up contest is planned.
Additionally, copies of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorist (ACVB) book, Decoding Your Dog, will be raffled during the Women in the Pet Industry Conference. ACVB has a monthly column featured on GoodNewsforPets.com, with the latest column focusing on fixing certain dog behaviors.
Lea-Ann Germinder, Founder of Good News for Pets and President of Germinder & Associates, says, “I am delighted to be in Portland celebrating the accomplishments of so many dedicated and successful women in the pet industry. The heart within a paw motif is a universal symbol for ‘pet love’ and I thought it would be nice to give back by presenting one of these inspiring women with a meaningful symbol of their work that they can proudly wear.” Germinder was recently nominated to serve on the 2015 PRSA Board of Directors representing the Tri-State District.
Recently, at the 2014 BlogPaws conference in Las Vegas, the winner of the Elena Kriegner necklace giveaway by Good News for Pets was Ariane (from Penny Wise Paws), and the online contest winner was Darlene Bryant. Matching donations were also given in each of the winner’s names to a shelter of their choice, as a commitment of the website to joining dedicated pet lovers in giving back.
