Nestle Purina contest seeks most pet-friendly workplaces

"Purina Pets At Work Contest" awards one winning business with pet-friendly makeover, donation to local pet shelter

Petfood manufacturer Nestle Purina PetCare is conducting a nationwide search to find America's most pet-friendly workplaces in the "Purina Pets At Work Contest."

Contest entrants can submit a story and photos about how their company is pet friendly, and Purina will select one winning business to become even more pet friendly and donate to a local pet welfare organization. The winning business will receive a makeover to outfit the business with pet-friendly materials (valued at US$5,000) and a US$10,000 donation will be made to a local pet shelter.

Entrants should describe how pets have made a positive impact on their workplace and why their workday is better for both them and their pet because the office is pet-friendly. Entrants should describe their employer's "Pets at Work" program, provide three to five photos that show pets in their workplace, and answer both of the following questions:
• How do pets truly have a positive impact in your workplace?
• How is having a pet-friendly office mutually beneficial for employees and pets?

Nominations will be accepted until January 15, 2013. The winner will be announced in the spring of 2013. Official contest rules and additional details can be viewed online.
