Born Free USA’s “Pets Go Wild for Wildlife” Photo Contest

Born Free USA, a global leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation, has announced its “Pets Go Wild for Wildlife” photo contest, seeking photos of furry family members acting “wild”: running like a cheetah, swimming like an orca, leaping like a gazelle, pouncing like a fox… or just going “wild” in general.

According to Adam M. Roberts, CEO of Born Free USA and the Born Free Foundation, “We work to keep wildlife in the wild – but all of us at Born Free also love our dogs and cats and know that our supporters and the public do too. We thought this would be a fun, creative way to celebrate all animals and share their antics with terrific photos.  Also, by noticing and capturing the moments your dog or cat acts ‘wild,’ we hope you will consider the connection between domestic animals and wild animals. Your cat and the big cats in the jungle. Your dog and the majestic wolf.  They are not all that different, and they all deserve our compassion.”

Entrants can submit as many photos as they would like. The contest is open to dogs and cats only. The three photos with the most votes receive prizes. First place prize is the winner’s choice between an iPad or an Apple Watch. Prizes will also be awarded for the top voted dog, top voted cat, most “promotes” through the contest site, and Born Free USA staff favorite. An entrant can only win for one category.  The fee to enter is $10 per photo entry and $1 per vote to participate in the contest.  Each contribution helps Born Free USA raise needed funds to continue life-saving work for wildlife around the globe.   Contest DEADLINE is September 25, 2015 at 12 Noon ET.

Born Free USA is a global leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation. Through litigation, legislation, and public education, Born Free USA leads vital campaigns against animals in entertainment, exotic “pets,” trapping and fur, and the destructive international wildlife trade. Born Free USA brings to North America the message of “compassionate conservation”—the vision of the United Kingdom-based Born Free Foundation, established in 1984 by Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna, stars of the iconic film Born Free, along with their son, Will Travers. Born Free’s mission is to end suffering of wild animals in captivity, conserve threatened and endangered species, and encourage compassionate conservation globally.

National Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day #Cat2VetDay

Saturday, August 22, is “National Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day” (#Cat2VetDay) and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) is using this as an opportunity to educate cat owners on the importance of routine check-ups. Eighty-three percent of cats are taken to the vet in the first year of ownership, yet over half of them don’t return!

Help spread the word, and if you are a cat owner please remember to take your cat to the vet for routine check ups.

Happiness finds Grumpy Cat

This adorable Friskies and PetSmart, co-branded video follows a loveable dog named Happiness who recognizes Grumpy Cat in the aisles of a PetSmart. Happiness tries his best to meet Grumpy as she tries her best to avoid Happiness at all costs. Personally, we think the adorable Corgi steals the show!

Did you know, cats are welcomed inside PetSmart stores nationwide, just like dogs? They are! The pet specialty retailer offers a full array of cat products, including the limited edition Friskies Variety Pack with exclusive Grumpy Cat packaging, sold in all PetSmart stores.

What do you think, did Happiness steal your hearts too?
