Garden Grove, California (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Internet retailer PetStore.com is inviting pet lovers to like the company’s Facebook page during the month of May for a chance to win one of six pet starter kits. Two lucky winners will be randomly selected June 1 to receive a custom pet starter set of their choice.
“Spring is a wonderful time to welcome home a new family pet, so we thought we’d help make that transition easier for new animal owners,” said PetStore.com Chief Operating Officer David King.
There is no purchase necessary to enter the giveaway. United States residents 18-years-old and older need only like PetStore.com on Facebook by May 31 to be eligible. PetStore.com will select two winners in a random drawing of all eligible entries and announce the winners on Facebook June 1.
“Our two lucky winners will have the opportunity to select from a dog, cat, fish, bird, reptile or small pet starter set,” said King. “Whether you’re welcoming home a finned, furred or feathered friend, we’ve got a prize pack with all the essentials you’ll need to get off to a great start.”
According to the 2011-2012 American Pet Products Association National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 72.9 million or roughly three in five homes. The APPA survey also reveals that although dogs and cats are present in more households, pet-for-pet, fish are by far the most popular animal to own with nearly 160 million in the U.S. alone.
