Military pets can fetch $300 in ‘Just Say Treat’ Contest

It may be a dog eat dog world, but the latest Exchange contest is focusing on the cuddlier side of these furry, feathered and sometimes finicky companions.

With the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s Patriot Family “Just Say Treat” contest, a pet picture and 50 words could be worth $300.

The Patriot Pet “Just Say Treat” photo/pet contest will launch May 1 online at www.shopmyexchange.com and the Exchange Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/aafes.bx.px. Shoppers need only to submit a photo of their pet (or pets) along with a 50-word or less description for a shot at a $300 Exchange gift card.

“Pets are a very important part of our lives,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Adviser Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “They provide many of us with companionship and friendship, so it’s only fair we take this opportunity to crow and bark about our pets.”

For more information and links to enter the Patriot Pet “Just Say Treat” contest, go to shopmyexchange.com/patriotfamily or visit the Exchange Facebook page at www.facebook.com/aafes.bx.px . hr@aafes.com.
