[Contest] Vote now to help shelter pets

1-800-PetMeds Cares™ DOGust Birthday Contest

Your pets are members of your family so of course you want to celebrate their birthdays. Many adopted pets have unknown birth dates though, leaving pet parents guessing or picking random days to celebrate. That’s why DOGust the First was introduced in 2008 to serve as the universal shelter dog (or shelter pet) birthday. Since then, DOGust has been a day to recognize and celebrate shelter pets everywhere!

This year, we’re celebrating DOGust by offering a contest for animal rescue groups, and we need your help.

The 1-800-PetMeds Cares™ DOGust Birthday Contest will provide sponsored adoption fees and featured adoption videos to three winning animal rescue groups to help often-overlooked pets find homes. By voting once a day, you can help these pets find the homes they’ve been waiting for.

Why sponsored adoption fees?

Sponsored adoption fees can bring attention to pets that are often overlooked due to age, appearance or overall health. The waived fees can help less-adopted pets find homes faster than they would otherwise, simultaneously freeing up space for the shelter or rescue to save another pet. It’s a win-win for the rescue group and the pets!

Who entered?

The contest was open to nonprofit groups that adopt out cats and/or dogs in the U.S. Shelters and animal rescue groups from across the country entered. Visit the contest page to see all the entries and vote for one!

What are the prizes?

  • The first place group will receive 10 sponsored adoption fees for less-adoptable pets and one adoption video featuring a special adoptable, sponsored pet (approximate $2,000 value).
  • The second place group will receive five sponsored adoption fees for less-adoptable pets and one adoption video featuring a special adoptable, sponsored pet (approximate $1,000 value).
  • The third place group will receive three sponsored adoption fees for less-adoptable pets and one adoption video featuring a special adoptable, sponsored pet (approximate $600 value).
