Stories and Photo Contests

We usually prefer to write -- or rewrite -- our own stories but since our PC is doing its own thing whenever it suits it, we are going to copy, paste and move on as quickly as possible. You might have noticed we haven't posted in a few days. Or not. But that's why. So hang onto your hats, umbrella, sunshades or whatever.

1) Purina, Kroger and animal lover Trista Sutter, from ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” have teamed up to launch the third-annual “Tales for the Pet Lover’s Heart” campaign, celebrating the unique bond between people and their pets, while donating funds to animal welfare organizations nationwide. Together Purina and the Kroger family of stores will donate $150,000 to animal welfare organizations in 2010 as part of the “Tales for the Pet Lover’s Heart” campaign and will recognize the outstanding efforts of animal welfare organizations nationwide. The campaign will conclude with a television special showcasing the unique people-pet relationship.

And if you're on Facebook, stop by their FB page.

2) Love meow is having a share your favorite rescue stories giveaway contest. Stop by and check it out too.

3) Be sure to enter Gracie's photo contest to help with Maxie's vet bill. You can enter either the real or virtual photo category. Furriends of the CB Auctions.

4) Don't forget to enter our Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul Summer Fun with Pet Humans photo contest. Click here to review the rules. You might be the winner of a digital camera. The contest ends next Monday midnight and the winner's name will be drawn and posted Tuesday.
