This is a sponsored post and there is a giveaway at the end!

As you may have figured out, I love dogs and I love dog rescue.  Recently, someone introduced me to a Chicago-based company called BumperPet who is teaming up with The Dog Saving Network to put on a weekly pet lotto to raise awareness of adoption animals, as well as to promote the value of positive reinforcement training.

They are hosting a weekly drawing on YouTube where an actual rescue dog spins the wheel to determine that week’s winning lottery numbers.  The dogs that help with choosing the lottery numbers have found their forever homes, so they aren’t available for adoption.  However, each dog was deemed unadoptable and thanks to The Dog Saving Network, who works with these types of dogs, the message is being delivered that so-called “problem” dogs can be trained and become valuable, loyal and loving members of someone’s family.

The entire purpose is to raise awareness about animal rescue and I think this is a clever idea, because who doesn’t love cute dogs and who doesn’t love winning things?  Even better, there is a ton of cool gear (which I received as a gift) on the BumperPet site and a portion of their sales are donated to animal shelters.

I recently wrote a book, Easy Social Media Tips for Animal Rescue, because I know that there are loads of rescue groups out there and it’s hard to be heard in this very LOUD world of social media.  I thought my tips would help rescue groups connect more with fans who can help.  What I didn’t consider was anything outside of traditional social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc).  BumperPet and Dog Saving Network did think outside the box and I hope you’ll take the time to check them out.  Definitely check out their store – there are loads of great gift ideas.

A couple of these I received, the rest are on my Wish List…
