What Are You Waiting For? Pets Make a Difference Deadline is Nov. 7th!
Animal lovers have just 4 more days to win great prizes – just for sharing their photos and stories. The Humane Society of Knox County wants to know why your pet is special to you, and to find out, they are offering a raffle called “Pets Make A Difference”. Entering is free and open to all. Contestants need only a photo of a pet and a person, and the answer to the question: “Why does my pet make a difference in my life?”
Winners will receive one of three fabulous prizes: a one year family membership from Penobscot Bay YMCA, a 500.00 gift card from Maritime Energy, or a romantic overnight stay for two at Point Lookout Resort. Winners will be announced in mid-November.
The photos and stories will be posted at various businesses as they are collected throughout the month of October. Displays and entry forms can be found at Rockland Hannaford, Townline Maritime Farms in Rockland, Union Agway, Damariscotta Bank and Trust in Warren, Highlands Coffee House in Thomaston, and of course, at the Shelter at 17 Buttermilk Lane in Thomaston.
To enter, follow these simple steps:
- Go to one of the display locations and pick up an entry form.
- Take a photo of an animal you know posed with yourself or another person.
- In 100 words or less, explain how this pet has made a difference.
- Drop off the entry form, the photo and your story at the display location. There are mail-in instructions on the form if you prefer.
The shelter wants everyone to have fun with this. Be creative, grab your camera, get your pet to smile , and tell your friends and neighbors!
