Kennebec Behavioral Health is once again hosting the online contest, the Pet Palooza from June 4-19, 2023. The Pet Palooza is a two-week long competition in which KBH staff, community members and local animal shelters enter their pets to compete for votes be donation.
This year’s event includes a specific theme for week two-memes. To enter, participants fill out a short application and submit one to two photos of their pet. On the application is a section to include text that will be used in combination with the photos to make a meme. During week two, all of the memes will be revealed.
So how can a pet win? Winning is based on voting. There will be five total prizes. The five winners include:
– Pet with most votes during week 1 (general voting)
– Pet with most votes during week 2 (Meme challenge)
– Pet with most cumulative votes on June 19th
– Dog randomly drawn from all dog participants
– Non-dog pet randomly drawn from all non-dog participants
How does voting work? Anyone can vote for a pet with the online voting form. Votes are by donation. $1 = 1 vote; $10 = 10 votes, etc. Votes can also be split among different pets.
Donations made to pets available for adoption at local animal shelters will be split 50/50 with the shelter/humane society that currently is adopting out the animal. Donations to all other pets will support KBH’s Substance Use Prevention & Intervention program.
Maine residents can enter their pets until May 26th by filling out the application located at www.kbhmaine.org/pet-palooza. Applications can then be emailed with photos to email@example.com.
