Change a Pet’s Life Day occurs annually on January 24th. In participation of the day, 1-800-PetMeds hosts an annual contest through 1-800-PetMeds Cares in which three pets in need receive grants to help with the costs of their medical treatments. This year’s 1st place winner was Simpson, a pug with Pug Rescue Austin.
Simpson was struck by a car and was scheduled to be euthanized until Pug Rescue Austin chose to bring the pug into their care and get him the medical care he needed. Since the conclusion of the contest, Simpson has recovered and been adopted into a loving home where he has a new name (Benson) to accompany his new life. This is Benson’s Change a Pet’s Life story:
