Looking for the puppy or kitten of the year
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.
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.
Petbarn Kawana Waters store manager Peter Auld knows how much local residents love their pets and says his expert team can help give young puppies and kittens the best start in life.
“Raising a young pet is not always easy, but the benefit of spending time training and providing the care they need during the first 18 months will be a well-behaved cat or dog for years to come,” he said.
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.
