Change a Pet's Life Contest 2016

Every day, thousands of pets await adoption in shelters and animal rescues. Placing these pets in loving homes is a challenge that compassionate shelter workers and volunteers tirelessly face. When a pet with serious medical issues enters a shelter, that challenge is even greater.

With the “Change a Pet’s Life” contest, PetMeds partners with you to find pets that need the medical and surgical help that animal shelters and rescues may be unable to afford. Last year, with your help, we made it possible for an adorable, adoptable pug named Gorilla to get the much-needed medical care he needed…and a new, loving family! The PetMeds community reached out to this sweet pet in need and literally changed his life. Learn more about last year’s contest winner, Gorilla, here. This year, we invite you to participate once again in the “Change a Pet’s Life” contest.
