In honor of Change a Pet’s Life Day on January 24, 2017, 1-800-PetMeds Cares™ is holding the third annual Change a Pet’s Life Contest to help out adoptable pets in need of medical care! Enter an adoptable pet from your shelter or animal rescue and encourage your community to vote for a chance to win up to $2,000 in grants.
How to Enter
The Change a Pet’s Life Contest is open to U.S. animal rescues and shelters to change the life of an adoptable pet by providing a needed surgery or medical treatment. Not part of a rescue? You can still participate by sharing the contest with your favorite animal rescue group, then voting for their pet to win!
Please note: We ask that all submissions are completed by an associate from the rescue group to ensure correct information. One entry per rescue group. Any entries that do not meet these requirements may be disqualified.
Click the Submit an entry button and upload the adoptable pet’s photo along with a brief story about the pet and the treatments he/she needs.
