Sixteen Dogs and Cats Will Win a Year's Supply of IAMS Senior Plus Formula
MASON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 9, 2012-- In honor of their newest formula, Senior Plus, today, IAMS is launching a national contest on its Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/IAMS) calling all pet parents of dogs and cats age 11 and older to put their animal's best paw forward for the chance to win a year's supply of food. With as many as 33 million pets in the U.S. in the double-digit age bracket, IAMS created this contest as a fun and playful way to shine a spot light on those pets who don't allow age to get in the way of the games they play, while educating consumers about the unique nutritional needs for pets 11 and older.
Starting today through June 3, each week, based on a photo and brief essay, the team at IAMS will select a dog and cat that exemplify how 11+ pets can play young, to stay young. Interested pet parents should visit http://www.facebook.com/IAMS to enter their cat or dog into the contest. A total of 16 pets (eight dogs and eight cats) will receive a year's supply of IAMS Senior Plus and be featured on the IAMS Facebook page.
"On the heels of introducing our new Senior Plus formula, we launched the 'Play Young, Stay Young' contest to offer pet parents a fun and unique opportunity to celebrate their 11 and older four-legged family members with the chance to win free food for a year," said Laura Lewis, external relations manager, IAMS. "We're all looking forward to reading the many entries that bring to life how cats and dogs can really benefit from a proper diet and active lifestyle."
Stay Young, Play Young Contest
Consumers can enter the contest on the IAMS' Facebook page April 9 through June 3, 2012 by submitting a current photo of their dog or cat and explaining in 100 words or less how their pet refuses to act his or her age. Each week, IAMS will select and announce a winning cat and dog who will receive a free year's supply of Senior Plus food. At the end of the eight weeks, a total of 16 pets will be featured on the IAMS Facebook page and all will receive food for a year!
