GreaterGood.org Partners with Einstein Pets


"Einstein to the Rescue" Contest to Award $1500 in Grants to Support Adoption
Calling all RESCUE Lovers!

 

We’re excited to announce that GreaterGood.org has partnered with Einstein Pets for Adopt a Rescue Dog Month by launching the “Einstein to the Rescue” Contest! We are working to promote pet adoption across the country and will be helping some deserving rescues and shelters with cash grants in the process.

We want YOU to get involved!

Through the contest, we’ll be giving away $1500 in cash (one $1000 Grand Prize grant and one $500 Runner-Up grant) to shelters or rescues who are nominated on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #EinsteinPets.

Want to get involved? It’s easy! If you are a shelter or rescue, simply ask your supporters to hop on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and share a photo of their rescued dog, tag your shelter, and be sure to include the hashtag #EinsteinPets along with a link to www.einsteinpets.com. If you are an individual, you can also nominate your favorite shelter or rescue by posting. Here’s an example:

Einstein to the Rescue

The contest will run from October 1 – 8,  and you and your supporters can share up to 10 times each—each post that meets the criteria will count as an entry.

Make sure your sharing preferences are set to public so that we can see your hashtags. Winners will be announced the week of October 9th!

It’s a great (not to mention fun, free, and easy) way to promote your shelter and adoption, and have a chance to win a grant in the meantime!
