  • Calling Budding Writers!

    How would you like to win a FREE ticket worth $500 to PPG’s sixth annual summit in Phoenix, Arizona on September 18-22, 2020?

    The event theme is Collaborative Care and Enrichment – Creating Partnerships for Positive Results and we are looking for blog posts or short features on the topic of animal shelter and rescue to publish on the BARKS Blog or in BARKS from the Guild. We may publish snippets on our social media platforms too.

    Do you have, for example, a specific training tip or enrichment idea that you have successfully implemented in a shelter or rescue environment? Perhaps your tale is more personal, of one special rescue animal who has taught you something special, or changed your life forever?

    Whatever it is, if it’s related to shelter and/or rescue animals, we want to know about it! Don’t consider yourself a writer? No problem. Just do the best you can, and if we choose your article for its content, we will help you knock it into shape. Photos, if you have them, are welcome.

    The author of the winning blog post or article will win a FREE ticket to Phoenix 2020!

    Please submit your article below.

    Deadline for entries: April 5, 2020

    Winner announced: April 20, 2020

    If you have any questions, please email Susan Nilson: barkseditor@petprofessionalguild.com.
