Starting today, the topic of animal shelter adoption gets its time in the spotlight once again with the fifth anniversary of the Pet 'Net: Adoption Event. To mark the occasion, Petside.com, a leading provider of information for pet owners and pet enthusiasts, is hosting the virtual cause-related program across five full days, instead of the traditional one. From November 26-30, Petside.com is bringing a consortium of the web's leading pet-focused bloggers together to highlight various aspects of pet adoption.
A Pet 'Net-dedicated hub page on Petside.com, located at www.Petside.com/PetNet2012 , is a one-stop destination for all of the event's adoption-related content, with posts ranging from how to prepare your house and family before adopting, to welcoming a senior pet into the home, and even fostering pets.
“Petside is thrilled to be celebrating the fifth anniversary of Pet 'Net with so many talented and passionate writers,” said Jessie Pascoe, Senior Editor, Petside.com. “And to highlight the important cause of pet adoption for a third time? Well that's just icing on the cake.”
Adding to the fifth anniversary celebration, Petside.com will be giving away $5000 to one deserving shelter in the United States. To help a shelter in their community be awarded, visitors to the site are encouraged to vote on the Pet 'Net hub page by submitting their zip codes. An animal shelter in the town which receives the most votes, will be chosen to receive the donation.
