Do you have "America's Luckiest Pet?" Enter the Petfinder "Luckiest Pet Contest!"

I know from reading many of the blogs that I follow, that there are a lot of people who have adopted pets that have a "story."

Cody and I on HIS
adoption day on
July 28, 2007
it was an adoption event
held by Petco!!


Some pets were Seniors when they were adopted, some had already been adopted  and for whatever reason it didn't work out and  the pet was returned to the shelter. Some pets were found abandoned by the side of the road and brought into a shelter, sadly, the list of reasons that  animals end up at shelters  goes on and on.



Wants to know:

What is YOUR pet's adoption story?

What was your pet's life like BEFORE they were adopted and how has their life changed since you adopted them?

Share your story by entering the PetFinder Luckiest Pet Contest and you could win a $500 gift card from Petco AND a $5000 donation to the Petfinder shelter of your choice. The runner up will win  a $250 Petco gift card.

Petfinder will be accepting entries until noon on Wednesday, February 20th, after that, from February 21st through March 18th, the public will vote on who they think is "America's Luckiest Pet." The pet with the most votes will win the grand prize!!

Best of luck to all who enter!

  2. I'm sure there will be many wonderful stories submitted.

    I think those who were adopted into true forever homes are all the luckiest pets, though.

    1. more than likely since at this time they have over 2000 entries, they will narrow them down to those that they think are best and then will publish those for the public to vote on. Good luck if you enter!
