method’s cute pet contest!


if you’ve been reading sfgirlbybay for a while now, you may already know my dog lucy is a rescue dog — meaning i adopted her from the shelter. i like to think lucy rescued me just as much as i rescued her when she stole my heart on their facebook page one day. she was living on the streets in kern county, which is hard for me to imagine, until she was picked up and sent to the local shelter, where only 13% of the dogs there are adopted and survive. even though she’d been on her own, was malnourished and filthy she still had a heart full of joy when i met her. for me, rescue dogs can be some of the most deserving and some of the most grateful dogs around, so i’m teaming up with Method to support the ASPCA.


this month to highlight pet appreciation week (june 5-11) and their own policy against animal testing, method is supporting the ASPCA’s good cause. method and are teaming up create a photo contest on Facebook, as well as Instagram. we’ll choose one winner each week for three weeks and all entrants will win Method’s Designed for Good soaps and a $50 gift card to also — many of the photos submitted will be posted to the method critters pinterest board — so you can check out all the cuteness online by visiting their pinboard or searching the #methodcutepets hashtag.

also, method will donate 15% of method product sales on in june to the ASPCA, whose mission is to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States. i hope you’ll join us in suporting the ASPCA and share your cute pet pics with us!

    It’s so hard to choose which of my pets to enter (three dogs and two cats), but I’m going to go with the newest member of the family, Pulley, the pug that was abandoned in our yard a couple months ago. After searching and searching for his owners, we just had to keep him.

    Lucy is sooo gorgeous, and how lucky was she to have you you find her. It was in the stars. I love seeing pictures of her, those eyes, those eyes!

  16. Kim says:

    One clarifying question–when you enter on Instagram is it #methodcritters or #methodcutepets? I am seeing conflicting things!


  17. victoria says:

    It should be #methodcutepets. I think their Pinboard is called Cute Critters.
