I love animal contests whether they be essays or photographs. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, what better contest than this:  I Love My Pet Because! All you have to do is answer the question “why do you love your pet”, fill out a simple entry form and upload a photo of your pet. The pet owner with the winning story, along with his veterinarian will each win $1,000 on Valentine’s Day.

But what I really like about this contest is that a group of special dogs will also benefit. Summit VetPharm will provide one free month of flea, tick, and mosquito protection to puppies and dogs in training at the New Horizons Service Dogs, a non-profit  Florida-based organization that provides highly trained dogs to people in wheelchairs or with mobility problems.

Please go to http://www.ilovemypetbecause.com/

for the entry form, some sample pictures and stories. The deadline is midnight, February 14.

Bountiful Blessings!
