During the initial 8-week Never Shock a Puppy campaign, we’ll be giving away some neat prize packages (5 of the 8 weeks) based on random drawings of people who post comments to specific blog entries that we designate as prize weeks.
In most cases, it’s one comment = one prize entry (within reason). We reserve the right to disqualify anyone who floods or spams us with unnecessary duplicate comments.
HOWEVER, because at times we’d like to target specific populations in the dog community — such as first-time dog owners or new dog adopters — we will give extra “weight” to people who comment AND self-identify as a first-time dog owner or new dog adopter. In those cases, one comment = 3 entries.
Because of shipping logistics, we will limit contest entries to people in the United States and Canada.
The comment “entry period” will last from the day a particular blog post goes live (usually a Wednesday) through midnight (MDT) the following Sunday.
We’ll add up the number of comments/entries then use Random.org to pick winners.
We’ll notify winners via email, so BE SURE you enter a valid and correct email address in the proper field when you comment.
Then via email, we’ll arrange for prize sizing, shipping, and such. In some cases, the prizes will come from us. In other cases, the sponsor will ship the prize directly.
All decisions are final. Winners assume all responsibility for any risk involved with using prize items.
