National Pet Month 2015

At YouGiveGoods we seriously love our pets, so we were delighted at the opportunity to shine a light on our furry friends for National Pet Month in May. During National Pet Month we celebrate the joy and companionship that come with pet ownership. We also take the time to recognize the dedicated volunteers and professionals who care for the neediest animals in animal shelters, clinics and pet hospitals.

To get in on the fun, YouGiveGoods ran a Pet Photo Sweepstakes contest during the month of May. We asked our YGG community to share their favorite pet photos with us for a chance to win a $50 American Express gift card. Let us tell you, when those pet photos came in, they made our day! We each had our personal favorite but every entry was just a delight.

Sadly, on June 1st we marked the end of National Pet Month by randomly selecting a winner from all of the contest entrants. We were excited to alert Ms. Edwards that her photo of "Lola Bunny" was the winner and sent her prize off in the mail. We hope Lola enjoys some extra special treats on us!

We were also pleased to show our support of animal shelters by running our first ever multi-day Giving Day Event. YouGiveGoods gifted 5% cash to the charity on each donation of $50+ to any of our animal shelter drives during our Pet Week Giving Days Event on May 4 - May 8, 2015.

It was a great success! In addition to the cash gifts, due to your generosity we shipped plenty of pet food, toys, blankets and cleaning supplies to animal shelters across the country.

We are adjusting to life here without the influx of sweet photos. You can help lift our spirits by sending your comments and photos of YGG at work to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We'd love to hear from you!
