Pet News and Views is partnering with World’s Best Cat Litter to give away several pounds of kitty litter to three animal adoption centers or rescues. Those of you who read Pet News and Views know that it is my goal to get companies to donate to animal shelters. World’s Best Cat Litter is showing they care by donating lots and lots of litter.
First Place Wins: 1,000 pounds of World’s Best Cat Litter
Second Place Wins: 500 pounds of World’s Best Cat Litter
Third Place Wins: 250 pounds of World’s Best Cat Litter
That is a lot of litter. I’ve been using World’s Best Cat Litter (WBCL) in my house for a number of years. It is nice to partner with a company whose products you know and trust. WBCL is made from whole-kernel corn, which controls odors and clumps for easy cleanup. Plus, it is 100 percent natural. Last year I tried the lavender scented formula, which is a stretch for me. I usually shy away from scented products. However, WBCL isn’t overbearing. It has a fresh lavender scent that makes my house smell great.
I know many of you volunteer at your local animal shelter or rescue. Many of you have heroes who go above and beyond to aide animals. Pet News and Views and WBCL want to know about your hero. In the world of animal rescue, who do you admire and why? In the comments section of this post, please write a few sentences about your hero. List his or her name, where he or she volunteers, and explain why this person is heroic.
I have the good fortune of knowing some of the best pet bloggers. They will pick the first, second, and third place winners, and I will contact the winners. The winners will choose which shelters or rescues will receive WBCL.
The judges are:
Joanne McGonagle of The Tiniest Tiger is the voice behind Gracey of The Tiniest Tiger, which is the one blog that I read and wish that I had written each post. It is that good!
Paris Permenter of CatTipper hosts some of the best contests and information about cat care on the Internet, and is a fellow journalist and author. She also writes DogTipper, which is perfect for all things dog!
Karen Nichols of Mousebreath is a great teacher about all things cat, blogging, and social media. I’ve learned a lot about blogging and writing by reading Karen’s blog. Some of her columns will make you laugh out loud.
Daniela Caride of Taildom posts informative pet stories and whimsical photos and videos. She is a professional journalist, and is well versed in cat and dog lifestyle topics.
They will read of all the comments, and will pick the first, second, and third place winners. I will contact the winners via e-mail. When I do, I will ask you to chose your favorite rescue or shelter to receive WBCL. WBCL will then make the donations.
The contest runs December 18 through midnight on December 19. The winning comments will be posted here on January 3, 2013, with the names of the winners and winning shelters or rescues.
We are looking forward to reading your comments about your heroes.
Editor’s Note: The contest is closed, and the judges will pick 3 winners. The winners will be announced in a post on January 7. Thank you all for entering. This is a sponsored post.
