We care about pets a lot here at ARTISTdirect, so we are sharing this cool contest!
Best-selling author, producer and screenwriter Nicholas Sparks of The Notebook, Dear John, Safe Haven, and The Best of Me fame is ready to make one lucky fan's adopted pet a star in an upcoming novel! Yes, we're serious.
Sparks has teamed up with nonprofit PetSmart Charities for a unique contest to celebrate shelter pets.
Sparks is a longtime pet adoption advocate and a pet parent to three rescue dogs. The contest asks fans and pet parents to submit their pet's adoption story. Sparks will choose the most heartwarming story and the lucky winner's adopted pet will be named in one of Sparks' upcoming novels and will also be featured on Sparks' website, along with an introduction by the author.
Tell 'em why you fell in love with your adopted pet and how they've made your life complete by submitting your pet's adoption story and photo to the "Fall into a Nicholas Sparks Love Story Contest" by visiting PetSmartCharities.
Submissions are open until December 14, with the winner announced January 12.
