Look­ing for the puppy or kit­ten of the year

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

PETBARN is call­ing for Coast res­i­dents to nom­i­nate their four-legged friend to be Aus­tralia’s first Puppy or Kit­ten of the Year.

In the search for the coun­try’s most adorable fur-ba­bies, Petbarn is aim­ing to help pet par­ents cel­e­brate the achieve­ment of rais­ing healthy puppy and kit­ten fam­ily mem­bers.

At 63%, Aus­tralia has one of the high­est rates of pet own­er­ship in the world, with 5.7 mil­lion of Aus­tralia’s 9.2 mil­lion house­holds home to a pet. It’s clear that Aus­tralians are avid pet lovers, but own­ing a puppy or kit­ten is not just about hav­ing a pet, it means in­tro­duc­ing a new mem­ber to the fam­ily, teach­ing them the house­hold rules and keep­ing them safe and healthy.

Puppy and kit­ten own­ers can nom­i­nate their pet to be the Puppy or Kit­ten of the Year un­til Sun­day, October 15, and also vote for their favourite en­try.

By en­ter­ing an adorable photo of your puppy or kit­ten at the Petbarn Face­book page, lo­cals and their pets will be in the run­ning to win the grand prize, a $1000 Petbarn voucher.

One puppy and one kit­ten will be crowned as the win­ners if they re­ceive the high­est num­ber of votes across Aus­tralia.

In ad­di­tion, Petbarn will choose two more ma­jor prize win­ners and there will be run­ners-up in each state and ter­ri­tory.

As liv­ing crea­tures, just like chil­dren, pets will need med­i­cal check-ups from time to time. Tak­ing out pet in­surance can save you up to 80 per­cent on vet con­sul­ta­tions, surgery and medicines.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to get pet in­surance, please visit petbarn.com.au/ ser­vices/pet-in­surance.
