Petco wants to find the 'Great Ones'; holds nartional adoption weekend


Petco is calling on all the "Great Ones" out there to submit a short video or essay for the contest

There is a new contest that pet owners may want to consider. Petco is calling on all the "Great Ones" out there to submit a short video or essay explaining why they're a great "mom" or "dad".

Five winners will be selected to receive a cash prize, animal shelters will win too with a matching donation. The grand prize winner will receive $50,000 plus a $50,000 donation to the rescue organization of their choice. Before the contest comes to a close on August 25, 2013, Petco is encouraging folks to become a shelter pet's very own "Great One" by saving their life through adoption during Petco's National Adoption Weekend taking place August 10-11, 2013.

Petco and Unleashed by Petco locations nationwide will be hosting adoption events the weekend of August 10-11, 2013. To help get new pet parents off on the right paw, Bayer® will be sponsoring Petco's National Adoption Weekend and plans to give adopting pet parents a free flea prevention starter kit (while supplies last), as well as coupons to use on their next purchase of K-9 Advantix II for dogs or Advantage II for cats and/or dogs.
