PR Newswire - Dogs love to get dirty, but dog adoption shouldn't be a dirty word. That's why in honor of National Dog Adoption Month, Wahl and Petfinder.com Foundation are encouraging dog owners everywhere to help them "do the dirty work" needed to clean out America's dog shelters.
Unlike traditional pet photo contests that feature squeaky clean animals, Wahl and Petfinder.com Foundation are encouraging dog owners to do the opposite—for a good cause.
For the entire month of October, people can submit a photo of their dog at its dirtiest along with a short story and shelter nomination to the Dirty Dog Contest App on the Wahl Facebook page. Those who do will be in the running to become one of three people to win a year's supply of pet grooming products from Wahl along with a monetary donation to the animal shelter of their choice.
Winners of the Dirty Dog contest are based on Wahl and PetFinder.com Foundation selecting the top 25 photos/stories and then fans voting for their favorites November 2-16. Prize packs for the Dirty Dogs Contest winners include:
First Place Prize: The grand prize winner will receive a year's supply of Wahl pet grooming products, $100 gift card to wahlhomeproducts.com and $5,000 awarded to the animal shelter or rescue group of their choice.
Two Second Place Prizes: Two second place winners will receive a Wahl grooming kit, $50 gift card to wahlhomeproducts.com and $1,000 awarded to the animal shelter or rescue group of their choice.
