Venice, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2009
The first of its kind community and shopping website designed for pet people launched just over a week ago - Cute as Hell (Cute as Hell Pet Community). Now the site is announcing the start of their NCAA-style pet competition affectionately called the Thunderdome (Cute as Hell Thunderdome).
Cute as Hell is a pet-tastic Web destination featuring four super cute sections:
Create a detailed profile for your pets which includes a Cuteness Rating, pet information, product recommendations, friends, comments, and photos. Video coming soon!
Buy all kinds of fantastic pet products with our helpful "five-paw" rating structure where the most popular items float to the top.
A few times a year our 64 top-rated pets battle it out head-to-head in the Thunderdome for a chance to win fabulous prizes and the title of Cute as Hell Pet of the Year! Think the NCAA Basketball Tournament for cute pets - you can even download a bracket and play along at home. Thunderdome prizes include PetSmart gift cards, Apple iPod shuffles, and a Nintendo Wii! Round 1 voting has just started. Get your vote in to make sure the cutest pets win!
A great resource to find local animal shelters, vets, groomers, pet sitters, dog walkers, breeders, rescues, adoption locations, and more - coming soon!
We checked in with Cute as Hell founder Erick Laubach to ask him about why he created Cute as Hell: "My wife and I were looking for a website for our pets - a dog and two cats. We found a few pet-related sites, but none of them had the functionality we wanted while still being well designed, easy to use, and uncluttered. Having a strong creative background and having worked on quite a few start-ups, I figured why not build my own - and voila - Cute as Hell was born. In the next few months, we're going to unveil even more with the goal of making Cute as Hell THE online destination for pet people!"
