It's time for...Johann's Annual Howling Howliday Giveaway!!!

Yep, that's right, it's time for Johann's Annual Howling Howliday Giveaway!

The contest begins at 12:01AM tomorrow, Nov. 26th (that's one minute after midnight, tonight) EST, and runs through midnight EST Christmas Day, Dec. 25th, 2009.

Last year was such a success, Mum and I scrambled around the past couple of weeks getting everything ready for this year's big event.

Like last year, it's a Holiday-themed photo contest, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes. The photo with the most votes and views will be the winner, second place number of votes and views gets second place...(well you get the idea)! The prizes are gift prize packages made up of some of the most amazing dog products on the market!

And this year, we've added in a way to help some pups in need! We encourage every one who enters to help out the shelter and the nice folks, that rescued me from a life on the streets. They helped Mum find me and give me the most amazing life a dog could ever have.

My shelter is the Southside Animal Shelter, a no-kill non-profit shelter, located here in Indianapolis, that rescues pets from all over the city. They take the unwanted ones from shelters that are full, find them roaming the streets (like I was, with my Mum, sisters and brothers), and take in all kinds of unwanted kitties and pups, then finds them amazing homes, just like I have. They will keep them all fed, healthy and happy until they get adopted if it's one day or even several years.

We're not asking for much, just a dollar if that's all you can spare. We know it's tough times, so if you're participating see if you can spare some to help out the needy pups and kitties, K? And ask your friends and family who are voting for ya to make a small donation too! The shelter sure could use some foods and supplies to help the pets find their furever homes!

We want to siriusly thank all the companies for their amazing generosity in making some pawsome contributions to the prize packages. Thank you to....

  2. Hi Johann

    I am not sure we have met, I am Reilly - paws to meet you :) That looks like a great contest and and a great cause.

  3. Hi Johann! We have just heard about your contest!

    Nice to meet you!

  4. Hi Rufus and Indie!!! I've been trying to figure out a way for my buddies outside of the US can participate...but all the gift certificates and prizes are from companies in the US.

    So if you won, and I sent you some of the gift certificates and you redeemed them you would have to pay so much for shipping that I'm afraid you wouldn't be happy. And I want ya to be happy!!!

    I'm working on figuring out a way to have one prize pack for one bud outside of the US that would be affordable for a winner outside of the US.

    So the 1st-3rd place winners would be from the US and then we could have one winner (with the most votes and views) from outside of the US too, like an International 1st prize.

    Go ahead and enter...and then I'll try and figure out a cool prize pack (put together from the prize donations) that we can award to one winner outside of the US in addition to the 1-3rd place winners in the US. Does that make sense?

    And if anyone has any other ideas, let me know!! We want everyone to have as much fun as possible :)


Thanks for barking in!
