1-800-PetMeds Hosts Next Pet TV Star Contest!
The search for cute pets across the nation continues with 1-800-PetMeds' newest contest.
1-800-PetMeds®, America's Largest Pet Pharmacy® just announced they will be hosting another Next Pet TV Star Contest starting on November 14th, 2012. Just like last year, pet parents can submit their pet's cutest picture for a chance to win a trip to Ft. Lauderdale, FL and the opportunity for their pet to be in the next 1-800-PetMeds TV commercial.
Last year's contest was a big hit for PetMeds when they named a Pomeranian named Bella as the Next Pet TV Star.
"Our customers continue to share pictures of their pets with us, as they have for years. So last year we decided to hold a contest to find the cutest pet, and we found Bella, the adorable Pomeranian you see in our TV commercial. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and we are excited to offer a starring role in this year's nationally televised commercial to another deserving pet.We hope everyone enjoys sharing his or her favorite entries and voting for The Next Pet TV Star." – Said Alex Irvin, Online Programs Director.
Bella was featured in the "We Love Our Pets" commercial that first aired on October 3rd, 2011. According to PetMeds, customers comment on Bella's cuteness weekly and love the commercial. But that's not all, Bella was also named the "Pombassador" for the Southern California Pomeranian Rescue, where she helps raise money for homeless Pomeranians around Southern California.
"If Bella could speak I know she would say that her time as the PetMeds TV Star has been the most special time of her life and has given her pawrents some really great memories. Bella used her celebrity to shine the spotlight on rescue and shelter dogs, dogs that work in law enforcement, the military, as assistance dogs and dogs that help to raise funds for charities that help both people and other animals." – Said Deedee Townsend, Bella's owner.
