World-renowned veterinarian Dr. Jan Pol from National Geographic series The Incredible Dr. Pol has joined forces with charitable company Givebones for February’s National Responsible Pet Owners Month.
They will host a Twitter contest beginning on Valentine’s Day and ending on February 27th, 2013, which marks National Spay Day, to promote and encourage responsible pet ownership techniques.
Here's what Dr. Pol said:
“Approximately 3.7 million animals are euthanized each year due to overcrowding and poorly-funded shelters. Spaying and neutering is the best way to prevent overcrowding in shelters. I admire and support organizations like Givebones that recognize the importance of rescuing pets and helping shelters around the country.”
Tricia Andrews, founder of Givebones, said:
“I’m thrilled to have Dr. Pol’s support and want our partnership to inspire animal lovers everywhere to join the movement and support this vital cause. Purchasing a Givebones collar is one more way you can be a responsible pet owner.”
One lucky pet owner will win a care package of animal friendly swag and Givebones will make a donation on behalf of the winner to The Humane Animal Treatment Society. All a potential winner has to do is tweet a photo of their pet along with the pets name at both @Dr.Pol and @Givebones.
Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!!
