#IChoseToRescue Challenge Returns

Our partner organizations deserve the best! That’s why Helen Woodward Animal Center and Blue Buffalo are again teaming up to give away three times the prizes for Blue Buffalo Home 4 the Holidays 2020.
We want to show the world why pet adoption is both beautiful and life-changing! What better way to do it than share our amazing adoption stories on social media.
During Home 4 the Holidays (October 1, 2020, to January 3, 2021) when your adopters from Home 4 the Holidays partner organizations tag newly adopted pet photos or video with the hashtag #IChoseToRescue and tag @hwac and @bluebuffalo on Twitter or Instagram, they will be entered to win a year’s supply of Blue Buffalo pet food for their pet and a $1,000 donation to the organization they adopted from. (Hey, that’s you!)
Not on Twitter or Instagram? Not to worry, your adopters can post their newly adopted pet right on when the contest begins on October 1, 2020.
Contest Timeline
Helen Woodward Animal Center and Blue Buffalo will select a winning entry during each month of the campaign: on October 31, 2020, November 30, 2020, and January 3, 2021, for a total of three winning organizations.
