What do you think it means to be a responsible dog owner? Things like, “always make sure my pup has enough food to eat and water to drink,” and “the ability to pay for veterinary care” probably came to mind, right? While we’re not denying those are some pretty paw-some answers, we think our furry friends deserve even more!
In an effort to promote responsible pet parenting and celebrate the amazing things pet owners do for their pooches every day, we were inspired to launch our #GiveAFetch campaign in 2017. After an incredibly successful kick-off year, we’re thrilled to announce that it’s back for its second year!
This year’s #GiveAFetch events weekend will take place in Pittsburgh, Dallas, Las Vegas and Kansas City on Saturday, September 22nd, and Sunday, September 23rd. In addition to fan favorites from last year, this year’s event will also feature a 7-foot tennis ball dispenser. While we know each dog in attendance will love it, it’s also contributing to a great cause! For each tennis ball dispensed, we’ll donate $5 (up to $10,000 per event) to a local shelter of the user’s choice.
While our event weekend will take place across the country in late September, our social media campaign is already well underway! If you don’t live in any of the previously mentioned cities, there are still plenty of ways you can join in the fun. Enter to win a free year of services and show off the great ways you go above and beyond for your pooch by entering our #GiveAFetch contest! Visit us online for full entry rules and details.
Last year, we were thrilled to host more than 4,000 pet parents and their furry friends at our in-person #GiveAFetch weekend, donated $50,000 to local shelters, and helped almost 60 dogs find loving homes. We can’t wait to see what this year has in store!
