June 02, 2015 // Franchising.com // LOS ANGELES – In celebration of National Pet Adoption Month, PizzaRev has launched the #PizzaRevPets campaign to help find forever homes for sheltered or abandoned animals. Throughout June, animal lovers are encouraged to share their favorite adopted pet photo and their adoption story via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #PizzaRevPets. PizzaRev will choose one Grand-Prize winner to receive Free Pizza for a Year and their winning photo will be displayed at PizzaRev restaurants across the country. Ten winners will receive a $100 PizzaRev gift card.
“Giving back to the communities we serve is a founding principle of our company, and pet adoption is a cause that we have been especially passionate about since we started PizzaRev,” said Nicholas Eckerman, co-founder and COO of PizzaRev. “We have adopted many pets into the PizzaRev family, and the #PizzaRevPets campaign is a way for our guests to share their stories and encourage pet adoption among their friends and families.”
Since its founding in 2012, PizzaRev has donated thousands of dollars to support organizations that are committed to finding pets forever homes. On June 12, the PizzaRev team will participate in a “Sleepover at the Shelter” event to benefit Shelter Me, Bark Avenue Foundation and the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation. The team is raising funds to increase adoptions of homeless pets and raise money to provide free spay-neuter to underserved communities. Anyone can support the PizzaRev team through www.crowdrise.com/PizzaRev.
In addition to fundraising for various shelters and pet adoption causes, PizzaRev’s founding members and many of the company’s employees have adopted pets of their own. The team and their pets recently spent a day volunteering at Pet Orphans of Southern California in Van Nuys, CA; get an inside look at PizzaRev’s personal pet adoption stories here: http://bit.ly/PizzaRevPets.
To further encourage pet adoption throughout June, PizzaRev has partnered with more than 40 local shelters that will provide a Free Pizza voucher to anyone who adopts a pet. A complete list of participating shelters and #PizzaRevPets contest rules can be found at www.pizzarev.com/pizzarevpets.
