We’re Celebrating Adopt a Shelter Cat Month…By Celebrating YOU and Yours!
Enter Our Shelter Pet Photo Contest!
The Instructions They’re simple! Please submit your entry by Saturday, June 20, 2015 to be considered. Don’t worry if you miss the deadline – stay tuned for another contest next week!
- Post a photo of a cat you have adopted from a shelter that requires special care. Utilize the Photo Contest tab on our page or post the photo to our wall at CATalyst Council with the hashtag #MySpecialShelterCat. Include the name of your sweet unique kitty and a short description about all that this feline friend has brought to your home.
- “Like” others’ photos to increase their chances of winning, and tell your friends to “like” yours!
- Tweet a photo of a cat you have adopted from a shelter that requires special care to our twitter @CATalystCouncil with the hashtag #MySpecialShelterCat. Include the name of your sweet unique kitty and a short description about all that this feline friend has brought to your home.
- Retweet others’ photos to increase their chances of winning, and tell your friends to retweet yours!
The Rules Even Simpler!
- Please submit photos of cats that have unique needs, whatever those needs may be. Some cats have disabilities that require great intervention while others have more minor conditions that simply require a little extra consideration. Caroline Golon of Blog Paws has a sweet Persian with a kidney disease that she provides “drinking stations” throughout the house for. To be able to improve the life of a cat by meeting his/her unique needs is a wonderful thing.
- Please submit a photo of your own adopted pet; there are a lot of cute kitties out there, but we want to see yours!
- Please limit one submission per pet, per contest, and do not create separate accounts in order to make multiple submissions.
The top 6 photos with the most “likes” on Facebook/retweets on Twitter will enter the final round, and our panel of judges will select a winner from the finalists. If your shelter cat is deemed the winner this week, you will receive a custom certificate to hang above your cat’s mantel (mewntel?) and your pet’s photo and story will be featured in our June and July newsletters ‘It’s All About the Cat’! This month, it could be all about YOUR cat!
Winners will also receive a gift bag for both cat and parent, from books to accessories to toys to treats we are happy to have items from Texts from Mittens, Mixtape Comics, Whimsily Ever After, Dr. Jennifer Conrad, Lil Bub, Woof & Meow, and VCA. In order to receive this portion of their loot, winners will need to submit a mailing address to which they can be sent upon notification of their selection. The inclusion of an address is not a requirement of either submission or of winning and will be requested privately only once a winner is selected. The winner’s address will be used solely for the delivery of winnings and will not be maintained by CATalyst or any of its affiliates for any future promotional purposes. A winner may opt out of the receipt of additional prizes if they do not wish to disclose an address.
