The Pet Industry's Leading Resource for News & Content Distribution

TAMPA, Fla. (January 28, 2015) – Pet living expert Kristen Levine, founder/president of Kristen Levine Pet Living, has partnered with BISSELL, Tagg, PetPlan Insurance and Purina to offer pet parents a great start to 2015 with the “Pet Parents’ New Year’s Resolutions Sweepstakes.”

The contest, which launched on January 19, will run through February 8. Valued at close to $2,000, this is Pet Living’s biggest give-away yet, with prizes hand-selected by Levine herself to help enrich the lives of both pet parents and their pets.

“I love being able to partner with brands pet parents already love and trust, as well introduce them to some new ones that they might not expect,” says Levine. “The trend I’ve noticed is that more and more non-competing brands are deciding to partner on sweepstakes like these, as it allows each company to leverage each other’s like-minded audiences and continue to grow.”

Winners will be chosen by a random drawing no later than February 13. One grand prizewinner will receive:

  • $500 Amazon Gift Card: Use your gift card to get healthy! You can purchase your body weight in kettle balls, a mountain bike or 100 pounds of chia seeds. And hey, if you’d rather use your gift card to buy an iPad Air, we won’t judge.
  • BISSELL SpotBot® Pet Deep Cleaner: Do you want to do more entertaining in 2015, but are embarrassed to let your friends and family lay eyes on all those pesky pet stains. Suffer from carpet shame no more!
  • Tagg GPS Plus Pet Tracker & Activity Monitor: Tagg provides pet owners technology to ensure safety, measure activity and express their love for their pets. Using advanced GPS and cellular technology, Tagg places owners in control of their pets’ well-being by notifying them if their pet becomes lost, tracking activity levels remotely and monitoring ambient temperatures to prevent life-threatening situations. Tagg has been honored with multiple awards for innovation in the pet and technology industries.
  • One Year of a Bronze Level Petplan Policy* for a Cat or Dog ($10,000 in coverage / $200 deductible / 100% reimbursement): Life can be ruff for furry family members. When unexpected vet bills arise, Petplan can lend a paw. With flexible plans for every budget and top-dog coverage for dogs and cats, pet parents can get up to 100% of vet bills covered for any injury or illness – even hereditary issues or cancer – for life… which means less time worrying about vet bills and more time playing fetch. Now that’s a treat
  • 12 Orders of Just Right® by Purina® Free (up to $68.95 per order): You know more than anyone that your dog is unique, so why settle for one-sized-fits-all dog food?
