Freshpet Seeks Patriotic Pets for Photo Contest

Freshpet is inviting pet parents nationwide to enter their pet in its United for Fresh photo contest. The contest aims to spread the word that every pet deserves the freedom to eat food made from fresh meats and veggies farmed in the USA, according to the company.

Pet owners can upload photos of their dog or cat wearing patriotic gear to Freshpet's website through July 8. Four Grand Prize winners will receive a one year supply of Freshpet food, and their photos will be featured on the company's website, Facebook and Twitter pages. The first 75 entrants will will a "Made in the USA" prize pack.

Freshpet will also donate one package of its fresh food to an animal shelter or rescue in need for every photo submitted.


"Our company was founded on the simple idea that fresh, less processed foods are healthier for us and the pets in our lives," says Scott Morris, co-founder and president of Freshpet. "With the 'United for Fresh' photo contest, we hope to educate consumers about the importance of what goes into their pet's food, and give animals in shelters and rescues a chance to benefit from eating our healthy recipes, too."
