Seasonal Promotion Will Award “New Parent” Care Packages to Four Lucky Winners

SAN DIEGO, Calif., (Nov. 17, 2010)—Avaak, the leader in easy-to-use, wire-free personal video networking technology—ideal for keeping an eye on pets while away from home—today announced a joint partnership with Adopt-A-Pet.com to increase awareness of animal adoption from shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, pet rescue groups, and pet adoption agencies nationwide. During Nov. 17 through Dec. 15, 2010, all individuals who adopt a dog or cat through Adopt-A-Pet.com’s free online service can enter to win a “New Parent” care package featuring a one-year supply of dog or cat food, sponsored by Purina®, a six-month supply of topical flea and tick control treatment for dogs or cats, and Avaak’s award-winning Vue™ personal video network—a wireless camera system that provides a way to easily check on pets from any smart phone or Internet connection.

“Adopt-A-Pet.com prides itself in finding families for homeless pets year-round, and we hope this contest will boost adoption and overall awareness of pets in need just in time for the holiday season,” said David Meyer, co-founder and board member of Adopt-A-Pet.com. “Our unique search engine helps thousands of shelters, humane societies, pet rescue groups, adoption agencies, and other organizations, connect directly with adopters through the Internet, TV, telephone, and more. It’s the perfect recipe for not only joining people with animals, but also for supporting a charitable cause.”

Launched this week, the “Paws” to Give Thanks promotion will reward new “parents” with the dog and cat supplies they’ll need to be successful and responsible owners. The contest is an easy, two-step process:

1. Simply search for a dog or cat via Adopt-a-Pet.com’s free search function during the month of November and look for an ideal match. Once found, click “Print Pet Info” on the left-hand side of the page and save to later verify proof of adoption, then proceed in contacting the shelter or rescue group to bring your new family member home.

2. Once the adoption is complete, log on to the contest entry page at http://vuezone.com/microsites/adoptapet/index.html and fill out the short form to be entered to win one of four prize packages.

The official contest will run through 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 17. Two lucky grand prize winners and two runners-up will be selected at random and notified via e-mail or telephone. All winners must provide verification of adoption to claim their prize.

“We’re pleased to partner with North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption web service Adopt-a-Pet.com, and are honored to show support for finding animals a home this Thanksgiving by offering the Vue personal video network as part of the winning prize packages,” said Gioia Messinger, founder and CEO of Avaak, Inc. “An ultimate peace of mind tool, Vue camera can be placed anywhere throughout your home and enables you to check in and see your pet at any time. Whether using it to see your four-legged companions from work or on your smartphone while on the go, new and old pet owners alike will love using this product.”
