Exchange Patriot Family Pet Contest is cat’s meow

Army & Air Force Exchange Service

A bird in the hand may be worth two in the bush, but the latest Luke Air Force Base Exchange Patriot Family Pet Contest is focused on all manner of furry and feathered friends. The exchange will reward $250 in gift cards to four lucky pet owners.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday shoppers are encouraged to register their pets starting at 9 a.m. Pets will be judged on pet look-a-like, best costume, best behaved and best in show. The first place winner will win a $100 exchange gift card, with $75, $50 and $25 gift cards for second through fourth places.

“Pets mean a great deal to their owners,” said Pete Alaniz, exchange general manager. “This contest is about shining the spotlight on our extended patriot family members and expressing appreciation of our four-legged companions.”

For more information or to enter the contest, authorized exchange shoppers can go to www.shopmyexchange.com/patriotfamily.
