Official Florida tour stop locations include:
· The South Florida Pet Expo (http://www.southfloridapetexpo.com/)
· The Tampa Pet Expo (http://tampapetexpo.com/)
· The Miami Pet Expo (http://www.miamipetexpo.com/)
Pet owners can enter the competition by bringing their dog to their local expo between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm, where they’ll have an official "kissing" photograph taken of their dog. Admission to the Pet Expo event is free; parking charges may apply. There is a $5 fee to enter the dog kissing contest and participants receive a $5 voucher towards any PetzLife oral care product purchased at the expo.
Proctor has developed the year-long road tour to honor the deep relationship between pets and their owners, and to raise awareness for animal rescue and welfare organizations.. Therefore, a portion of all entry fees go directly to benefit a local animal welfare or rescue organization located near each road show stop.
The dog with the most online votes at the end of a 30-day voting period will be crowned the K-9 Kissing King or Queen for each Florida location, win a $250 prize package provided by sponsor PetzLife, and automatically be entered into the national competition for a chance to be named “America’s Smoochiest Pooch.” For additional information about how the competition works, please visit http://www.americassmoochiestpooch.com,
While they will not be entered into the official contest, animal lovers across the nation can also participate in the fur-filled fun WITHOUT going to the expo by uploading pictures of themselves kissing their dog(s) on Facebook at @AmericasSmoochiestPooch, or by tagging an Instagram photo with #kissingdogs.
