All you need to do is write and share your story about how adopting your pet has changed your life for the better, as described in this video.

You don't even have to be a great storyteller - we're happy to help you tell your story! While there is a winning award of $100,000, there are numerous other awards for 2nd, 3rd; even 5th place, so there are many opportunities to win, and the more entries, the better our chances!
