American Authors / Petfinder “I’m a Believer” Contest for National Dog Day

I'm a Believer Photo ContestIs your pet destined for stardom?  Well now is your chance to share them with the world!  Petfinder has partnered with the hot, new band American Authors, in coordination with National Dog Day, to bring you the “I’m a Believer” Photo Contest.

Contest Details

First, a little back story.  The band’s passion for pet adoption led them to create a unique, dog-themed, version of their hit single “Best Day of My Life“.  It’s a must see. Check it out below…

Now, they are back at it and are creating their second dog-themed video for their latest single, “Believer” off their debut album, Oh What A Life, that came out this past March.  However, this time they want to feature some of your great pet photos!

How to Enter

Starting now through August 15th (midnight PST), submit the best photo of your dog with a caption about why you are a “believer” that adopting a dog simply makes life better.  To make your photo count, you must use all three of these hashtags: #petfinder, #americanauthors, and #nationaldogday on either Instagram or Twitter.

The grand prize, of course, is to have your pet featured in the official “Believer” dog video that will launch exclusively right here on on August 26th, the 10th anniversary of National Dog Day.  However, there are some other great prizes as well.  Second place will win tickets to an American Authors show, and third place will win a Doggie Treasure Box courtesy of American Authors!
