We’re in – #ChangeAPetsWorld Instagram Sweepstakes


Give us those puppy-dog eyes! And the cat’s whiskers, too! When you adopted your pet, you changed his world, and Apartments.com wants to celebrate both of you-you for rescuing a pet and your pet for just being adorable. Starting August 6 – August 26, snap a photo of your adopted pet in your apartment and tag it on Instagram for the chance to receive a gift card worth $100 USD and a Petco Foundation travel water bowl and laser toy.

We know your furry roommate(s) are all over your Instagram feed and we want to see them! You might win a prize too. It’s a win-win!

Here are the guidelines:

  • Step one: Follow @ApartmentsCom on Instagram (If you haven’t already, you can set up a free Instagram account at www.Instagram.com)
  • Step two: Upload a photo(s) of your adopted pet(s) in your apartment to Instagram and use the hashtag #ChangeAPetsWorld
  • Step three: Tag @ApartmentsCom in your photo entries, the handle of your apartment community, and the handle of the pet adoption agency from where you adopted your pet(s) (if available)

Unfortunately, we do not get notifications nor can we see any posts from private accounts. In order for us to obtain photo(s), Entrant’s Instagram account needs to be public for the entry to be received.

Please view the official rules here.

Good luck! We can’t wait to see those happy apartment-dwelling pets!

Meet Ponce: A Chorgi Who Found His Forever Home – Pet of the Week – Chihuahua / Corgi Albany, NY Robyn Kearns I would like to introduce you to my little boy “Ponce.” Eight years ago I was on vacation in Puerto Rico and I was staying in the El Yunque Rainforest. This poor little guy was tied up to a tree and was surviving on frogs and lizards. I called our airline and asked if we were able to bring him back to New York and they said if he had all of his shots and proper papers we could. Long story short… we did and he is the best little guy I could ever ask for. My Dad says….”most people bring home T-shirts when they go on vacation.” Did you like this week’s Pet of the Week? Leave a comment below and let us know what you thought! If you would like to nominate your pet for Pet of the Week, send us your pet’s story along with a photo to petoftheweek@entirelypets.com. If your pet is selected, they will be featured on our site and you’ll receive some cool prizes!
