Show your pet’s ‘pawsonality’
Think your pet is a star? Do they have what it takes to dazzle the ‘puparazzi’ and land on the front cover of The Road Ahead?
If yes, then enter your furry friend in the 2018 RACQ Pet Search competition (entry details below).
This time around, the judges aren’t just looking for a pretty face – they want to see your pet’s ‘pawsonality’ shine through.
Whether your pet is up to mischief, likes watching television, snuggling in bed or simply enjoys their food – show us their personality and what makes them unique.
This year, the stakes have never been higher, with cats on the prowl for a back-to-back championship and canine companions battling to take out their first ever victory.
Phoebe Sale, owner of the 2017 Pet Search champion, believes cats will reign supreme again, but said it was time to hand over her tabby cat Leo’s crown.
“Leo has had his turn at glory and is happy to bow out of the limelight for now and share the crown with another furry friend,” she said.
Ms Sale said she loved seeing ‘Lord Leo’ on the cover of the RACQ Calendar and on The Road Ahead, but her favourite memory was donating her prize to various animal shelters.
“We used the $5000 worth of Wish gift cards to purchase pet supplies including food, litter, toys, beds, medication, leads, collars, bowls and more and distributed them to 11 different rescue groups in the south-east Queensland area,” she said.
“It made the prize 1000 times enjoyable and gave it a special purpose.”
RACQ’s judging panel will select 11 finalists, who will each receive a $500 RACQ Bank EFTPOS card, a professional photoshoot and a spot in the 2019 RACQ Pet Search calendar. A twelfth ‘People’s Choice’ finalist will also be chosen via a public vote.
All finalists will then be put up for a public vote with the chance to win a $5000 RACQ Bank EFTPOS card, a professional photoshoot and a starring role on the calendar and on the front cover of The Road Ahead.
New to this year’s competition is a weekly prize draw. Share your entry with friends and family on Facebook to go in the draw to win one of eight $100 Vet Products Direct Pet Pamper Prize Packs.
The 2019 calendar will be available for purchase in late 2018 at all RACQ stores, bank branches and at Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) locations for a gold coin donation. All proceeds raised will be donated to the Animal Welfare League Queensland.
