Our friends at 1-800-PetMeds are at it again. They have hosted many contests where grant winners are chosen to help rescue organizations. This particular contest called “Change a Pet’s Life Contest,” is designed to help fund (up to $2,000) much needed medical treatments for adoptable pets so that they can placed in a forever home in better health.
I will share the meat and potatoes of the contest details in a moment, but I want to tell you a bit about last year’s winner so you can see how much of a difference this contest can make. Regina is an American Bulldog. Prior to being rescued by the National Mill Dog Rescue, she was living her life as a puppy mill breeder. By the ripe age of four, she had given birth to a multitude of litters and was in need of medical assistance. She needed dental work, repair surgery for hernias, the removal of tumors from mammary glands and a spay procedure. When the medical team began working on Regina, they realized she had been previously been sutured with fishing line, which had caused severe infection and pain. Take a look at her photo below. Can you imagine that cute little smooshy face with anything other than a smile?! I’m so happy to know that she now has received the care she needed and I’m sure she’s snorting and drooling with joy and complete abandon.
1st Place: up to $2,000 toward the winning pet's care & a video produced by 1-800-PetMeds Cares about the winning pet and rescue group that will be featured on their website and social channels.
2nd Place: $1,000 grant for the second-place pet's surgery and/or medial treatments.
3rd Place: $500 grant for the third-place pet's surgery and/or medical treatments.
