Sixteen organizations move on in bracket-style contest featuring adoptable pets competing for $11,000 in donations

Petplan pet insurance’s Tournament of Tails moves into the Spirited 16 today, as just 16 organizations and their adoptable pets remain to vie for the $5,000 grand prize.

The bracket-style challenge lets fans vote online at http://www.gopetplan.com/tournament-of-tails to advance their favorite adoptable pet to the next round. The nose-to-nose matchups last one calendar day, and the pet who receives the most votes moves on to the next round.

No pet goes home empty-pawed when eliminated from the challenge. Those bounced from the Terrific 32 (first round) received a $100 donation for their shelters; players whose run ends at the Spirited 16 receive $200; pets knocked off in the Eager 8 round receive $300; while those who claw their way to the Final Fur net $500. The Tournament ends with a one-day championship matchup on Monday, April 4, with the winner taking home a $5,000 grand prize donation for their organization.

The Tournament of Tails began on Monday, March 13, with 32 participating shelters vying for the nearly $11,000 in donations. The Spirted 16 will run through Tuesday, March 28.
