One lucky animal organization, participating in this year’s Home 4 the Holidays campaign, will receive a $500 donation for sharing their most heart-warming pet adoption story. The adoption must take place between October 1, 2013, and January 2, 2014, to be eligible for this prize, and must include at least one high resolution photo of the pet. Be sure to enter‐to‐win by telling us the best stories your organization sees during the 2013 campaign. Please see below for details on how to enter.
Every week during the Home 4 the Holidays campaign (October 1, 2013 – January 2, 2014), participating animal organizations are encouraged to enter heartwarming adoption success stories. Submissions can be made weekly by snail mail, fax or email, and at the end of each week Helen Woodward Animal Center will select a winning story to be featured on our blog, Pause For Tails.
After the campaign ends on January 2, 2014, the weekly story submissions will be narrowed down by a panel of judges. Those finalists’ stories will then be voted on by the public and our grand prize winner will receive a $500 donation to their organization.
The winner will be announced in February 2014, and will be contacted via phone or email. The winner will also be announced on Helen Woodward Animal Center’s blog.
