Purina ONE and GOOD are back at it again! This time they are out to show that they realize that every pet lover knows the impact that their furry friend has had on people’s lives. So the partners want to celebrate “hero pets” with the launch of their new “Hero Pets to the Rescue” Photo Challenge (http://heropets.maker.good.is/).
Beginning right now until November 11th, just in time for Veteran’s Day, pet owners are being asked to submit a photo or a video plus a short (true) story about how their pet has changed someone’s life. It can be a true heroic fete or the simplicity of helping someone by just being there for them. It really does not matter as long as someone considers the canine to be some type of hero.
Submissions can be made to http://heropets.maker.good.is/. No more submissions will be accepted after November 11th.
From there, 15 finalists will be voted on by the GOOD community and the winning “hero pet” will receive a $5k donation made in their name to one of the following pet service non-profit orgs: Pet Partners®, Support Dogs, Inc., New Horizons Service Dogs, Inc., Working Dogs for Conservation; plus a one year’s supply of Purina brand food and a featured post on good.is to make the hero pet truly Internet famous.
After the 15 finalists have been chosen, the GOOD community will then vote on the 15 finalists from December 2nd until the 9th, 2013. The hero pet with the most votes from the GOOD community will receive a year’s supply of Purina ONE brand pet food, a featured post on Good.is to share their pet’s story and a $5,000 donation made to one of the following four pet service non-profit organizations of winner’s choice: Pet Partners, Support Dogs, Inc., New Horizons Service Dogs, Inc., or Working Dogs for Conservation.
“At Purina ONE, we’re always striving to highlight the positive difference pets make in everyone’s life,” said Christina Schneider, Assistant Brand Manager, Purina ONE. “Whether in small ways or in bigger ways, all cats and dogs are heroes to the people who love them. We look forward to seeing the inspiring stories that pet owners submit to the ‘Hero Pets to the Rescue’ Challenge.”
“Our partnership with Purina ONE has celebrated the many ways that pets change our lives, and we’re constantly amazed by how pets help people with even just the smallest of gestures. We’re excited to recognize the heroes that pets are,” said Jay Ku, Head of Partnerships, GOOD.
