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....
