PETCO and Royal Canin GOGO promoFriends, I am super excited to share with you a contest I am hosting in conjunction with Royal Canin and PETCO

Help me spread the word about their “Get One, Give One” promotion taking place next weekend and you could win $1K cash donation or more than 3,000 cans of cat food for your favorite pet-related non profit! (See below for details on how to win.)

The “Get One, Give One” promotion (or, as I like to call it, GOGO) is one of those win-win opportunities that don’t come along too often. Get this:
Next weekend (July 8-10, 2011) PETCO is offering every customer (while supplies last) two FREE cans of Adult Instinctive or Ultra Light Royal Canin adult feline wet formula for their cats – no purchase necessary. For each can given away to you, Royal Canin will donate an additional can to the PETCO Foundation, which helps support approximately 7,000 local animal welfare groups across the country to help find homes for more than 200,000 adoptable animals every year

So, to reiterate. All you have to do it trot your little self to PETCO next weekend, ask for your two free cans of Royal Canin cat food and then feel happy knowing that another two cans will be donated to pets in need via the PETCO Foundation.

Now, here’s the REALLY exciting part. Royal Canin and PETCO are offering a special promotion just to Romeo readers. Clearly, visiting me here every day pays off! THREE lucky readers are going to win awesome prizes for their favorite cat-related charity. Our grand prize winner will get to designate the recipient of a $1,000 cash donation and two second prize winners will get to designate the recipients of a 1/2 pallet of Royal Canin Adult Instinctive or Ultra Light adult feline wet formula food. By the way, one pallet is 7,292 cans of food. That means each recipient gets 3,696 cans of food. See? Cats can do math.

Here’s how you can win (you can choose one or some or all of these but remember to email us and tell us at [email protected] and tell us what you’ve done!)

IMPORTANT: Email my staff at [email protected], telling us all the things you did to enter, and include appropriate links and handles.

I will do a random drawing and announce the three winners on July 13, 2011!

Animal kind is the best organization I have ever worked with…

They are an incredible group of people dedicated to helping the animals…

Animalkind of Hudson NY has so much heart and does so much good. Keep it up!

I would like to submit Life Is Better Rescue in Lakewood, CO. for consideration. They save animals from death row and adopt them out. This rescue is relatively new but has a large number of animals. I am a cat foster parent for them, and they currently solely rely on foster parents! It’s hard work!

I donate to Animalkind in Hudson, NY

Woodstock Animal Foundation in Kentucky would be without a doubt my choice if I won. I have been fostering for them for nearly a decade, and in an area that ranks very poorly for animal welfare they are heroes. Besides rescue and adoptions they provide low cost spay and neuter for rural counties throughout the state and are always ready to step up and help the ill or injured unowned animals that come into the shelters. They never say “I can’t” or “It’s too much” or “It’s hopeless.” From animals hit by cars to those requiring round-the-clock nursing care to recover from disease or neglect the volunteers who run this rescue will provide whatever the animals in their care need and put those needs above all else.

I’d like to put in my vote for Lucky Dog Rescue. Ashley Owen Hill not only has been taking in “unadoptable” pets (a lot of pit bull and mixes) at Lucky Dog Rescue in Mississippi and cares for them until they find a home, but she also put help put Pet Pardons on FaceBook, advocating for dogs and cats who are about to be Put to Sleep and need immediate rescuing, and setting up a place to advocate for them and raise funds to pay for their upkeep so that they might get adopted. She recently took in dogs who survived outside in one of the biggest tornadoes in Alabama. When other groups suggest voting for Lucky Dog to get some extra funds in different contests, she tells them to place their votes with more worthy animal groups. She has united people across the US through FaceBook to awareness and help injured, senior and animals about to die find loving homes. I live in Illinois, and Lucky Dog Rescue has my vote.

Thanks Romeo for helping so many animals-you are so awsome. If I won, I would donate to Pets Without Parents in Columbus OH. They are a no kill shelter, and I have been lucky enough to adopt 2 wonderful animals from them in the 10 years since they started. They are small, and don’t have many large corporate sponsers, so all the donations they get are really, really needed. Last year they found homes for 327 cats and 432 dogs, a total of 759 pets found permant homes.

I would like to Donate to Tiny Paws Dog Rescue Canada, being I am not only a member but all so a Foster Mom and now have my 7Th foster and Loving every minute. They help all Tiny Paws up to and sometimes over 29lbs, and all ways find a Pawrific home for these Babies; including a wonderful membership of caring, loving foster’s and staff that are just Wonderful!
Thank you so much.

Please consider Animalkind of Hudson, NY for this award. They do a fantastic job of TNR and of finding homes for feral cats , and could really use the help with food!!

Animalkind in Hudson, NY is an organization that protects and cares for feral cats and finds homes for the homeless cats they receive from the public. It can use donations to allow more care, neutering, and health care for their cats.

I have volunteered for Animalkind in Hudson NY for the past 5 years and have seen what a truly wonderful organization it is. They will never turn away a cat in need and are completely dedicated to being a no kill shelter. When the recession hit and more and more animals were dumped on their doorstep, they still came to their rescue and opened their doors to them. Everyday is a challenge to be met with their limited resources. Animalkind deserves all the help it can get with their rescue efforts and they would greatly appreciate this winning this contest.

I would donate to Animalkind in Hudson, NY. This small not-for-profit has saved countless feline lives, and has cut down on so many unwanted births by their program of spaying and neutering.

AnimalKind in Hudson, NY does extraordinary work helping felines.

Those of us who live in the Northeastern Florida / Jacksonville area are forever grateful for First Coast No More Homeless Pets. Words cannot possibly express our gratitude to FCNMHP and our thankfulness to founder Rick for the daily unselfish work they do to help animals who might have had no tomorrows.

I’ve worked very closely with this fine organization and fine people for over 7 years. Living previously in a country club community, you would have thought unwanted pets would never be an issue. That was not the case in Deercreek! We stepped up to the plate, registered the feral cat colony, and then began to do the right thing … i.e. the help of Rick and FCNMHP.

So, I am eternally grateful to them and to YOU and those out there in the big world who are helping the animals each and every day.

I’ll be going to Petco in Hartsdale NY. My non-profit selection is one I volunteer with and where half the Cat Wisdom 101 team are from. Will also share/tweet.
