Petfinder is Having a Contest!

I think a lot of us know at least one person who has found their dog or cat through Petfinder. They do such a good job of showing available pets n various shelters across the county. Calling attention to them is always a pleasure.  A good reminder that they are there 24/7, doing what they do best.

There are a lot of ways to acquire a new pet.  You  can go to Breed Rescue, or you can find a truly ethical, responsible breeder, or can go to a shy shelter. If the latter is your choice, then Petfinder gives you a way which you can view all of the available pets at local shelters before you leave home.  Then you can drive over and see them in person, get acquainted, and see if one is the right one for you and your family.

Petfinder's new contest is Adopt a Token, to celebrate the launch of MONOPOLY's new token - a cat! They are working with Hasbro on this contest that can make you and your favorite Petfinder Adoption Group a winner!

Here's how it works.  Search Petfinder's site for dog and cat profiles to find the Cat and the Dog's profile pages. There is a profile for each and once you find it all you do is click on the link "Click to Enter Sweepstakes." You can enter every day through November 30th. Using what you already know you can use the pet filters to find the profiles.  

Petfinder will be dropping hints on and so be sure to check for the hints.

Here are the Prizes:

ONE GRAND PRIZE WINNER will receive a life-sized replica of the Cat Token, a $250. gift card for the Petfinder adoption group of the winner's choice.

50 FIRST RUNNERS UP will each receive one MONOPOLY Empire board game.

50 SECOND RUNNERS UP will each receive one MONOPOLY classic board game featuring the Cat and Dog tokens.

Additionally, for everyone who purchases the classic MONOPOLY board game from either or Hasbro will give a dollar for every purchase!

What a great way to celebrate the holidays and help homeless pets!

I'm glad y!ou noticed! I think it' s a great idea to help one Group

Gordon said...

What a good idea. This helps one Group and draws attention to the number of cats (and dogs) that are in urgent need of a permanent loving home.

That's so true, Gordon. Thank you your comment!
