The Team Cuddle contest

The “Team Cuddle” Contest is being sponsored by Freshpet, the only company in the U.S. market today with fresh refrigerated food for dogs and cats. The organization is joining efforts with popular Parenting Lifestyle blogs Mommy Shorts and Momma’s Gone City in order to launch Team Cuddle, a celebration of the special, loving moments shared between family members.

The threesome would like to encourage the mothers of adorable, cuddly four-legged family members to enter to win. The Grand Prize winner will receive $1,000 USD and Four Category Winners will receive $250 USD as a thank you just for entering.

The idea for the contest was inspired by the adorable photographs of Momma’s Gone City’s own Theo and Beau. Team Cuddle is a contest to find the very best snuggling moments ever captured on film. The contest is divided into four categories, two of which involve pets.

To enter the contest, simply upload a cuddling picture on Mommy Shorts’ Facebook page between February 10, 2014 and March 3, 2014. Prizes for the most lovable photos include:

(1) One Grand Prize Winner will receive $1,000 USD

(4) Four Category Winners will receive $250 USD. The winners of the (2) two Pet Categories will receive a Freshpet Prize Pack full of coupons and goodies

The contest even comes with some suggestions from Freshpet like: Encourage your pet to cuddle by offering them fresh, all natural treats, like new Dog Joy Chicken Strips with Flaxseeds or Dog Joy Sausage Slices (available in select Wal-Mart stores).

Freshpet, headquartered in Secaucus, New Jersey, was founded in 2006 by pet lovers and pet food industry professionals. The organization identified an opportunity to improve the pet food market and introduced fresh food as a healthy alternative to dry or canned food. They only uses high quality meats, poultry and fish combined with fresh vegetables and fruits – with no preservatives or fillers like corn, wheat or by-products. Nutrient-rich meals allow pets to have the same healthy eating habits as their owners.

Because they believe in fresh, nutritious meals for pets, they are the perfect fit for the two blog sites since they focus on the health and well-being of children. Both rely upon their parents for good care and love aplenty.

“We are big fans of these two blogs and could not be more excited to be a part of Team Cuddle,” says Kathryn Winstanley, VP of Marketing for Freshpet, “Pets bring so much joy and love into our lives. It will be fun to see those emotions expressed in the beautiful images we’ll receive.”
