DiggRedditPrintShare

If you, or someone you know has what it takes to be named Animaltarian of the Year and be eligible for a $5,000 prize,  you will want to read on for information we received from PetPartners who say they, “care for animals and love those who care for them, too. ”

PetPartners asks: Do you know someone who helps wrangle lost pets on the streets?  Do you work for a group that saves animals when natural disasters occur? Do you know a no-kill shelter that helps animals in the community? What about a therapeutic horse ranch for kids with disabilities?  Maybe your veterinarian is notorious for pro bono medical care? That person or group has a chance to win $5,000 and be crowned the Animaltarian of the Year – presented by PetPartners.

What is an An-i-mal-tar-i-an?
/an-uh-muh l—tair-ee-uh n/
—noun

1.  A person who seeks to support animal welfare.
2.  An animal who assists to advance human welfare.

Are you a video novice? You can submit on the group or person’s behalf.  Once the video is submitted, call everyone you know and get them to vote for it and get them to share the video with people they know, too.

The contest started June 2 and rolls through the dog days of summer. The Animaltarian of the Year will be announced on October 1.
