Celebrate Platt Pet Week With Us August 3rd – 7th!
If you haven’t noticed, these days animals seem to rule the internet… and our hearts. From Grumpy Cat to the latest puppy sensation Tonkey the Sharpei, it’s easy to see why these cuddly family members deserve nothing but love! Platt College wanted to take the time to show love to all of your adorable family members as well! In honor of our beloved pets we will be celebrating Platt Pet Week starting August 3rd through the 7th. Here are several of the ways you can help us celebrate pets in your lives and others:1. Submit a photo of your pet on Instagram using the hashtag #plattpets and tell us why you love your pet! You will have a chance to win 2 tickets to the Cosplay Dreams 3D Premiere (valued at $31.98) and a $25 Petco giftcard. In order to be eligible for the contest you need to make sure you follow us on Instagram @plattcollegesandiego and use the tag #plattpets so we can find your picture! A winner will be chosen through a random drawing on August 10th, so you will have a full week to submit a photo! 2. We have partnered up with the San Diego Humane Society to collect donations to give to the animals at their shelter. Instead of asking for cash donations, we will be collecting tangible items like food, toys, and other items to help them take care of the many pets they provide temporary homes for until they can find their forever home. Below is a list of the items that they are looking for. You can drop off the items in several locations on campus throughout the week: Admissions, the Library, and the Administrative office. As usual the Leiker family has offered to match all donations that are brought in towards the cause. We appreciate anything you can donate to help pets in need!3. Some of you might remember a special golden retriever named Vedder who paid us a visit earlier this week. He wandered around campus and our classrooms with a GoPro attached to him. We will be launching the video of his doggy adventures as well next week! Be sure to like us on Facebook so you can be the first to see his adorable GoPro campus tour. We can’t wait to see all the cute pictures of your pets and thank you in advance for any donations to the San Diego Humane Society.
