Pet Travel. Made Easy.

Contest: Win Hotel Accommodations and Tickets to Meet the Breeds is teaming up with the PET FRIENDLY Kimpton Hotels to send TWO LUCKY WINNERS to Meet the Breeds™ in New York City!

Last year, 36,000 attendees enjoyed 200 individually decorated official breed booths that allowed dog and cat lovers to interact with dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and learn about their history and character directly from the experts. 100 vendor booths offered every imaginable product for pets and their owners, and five ongoing demonstration rings featured law enforcement K9s, grooming, agility, obedience, and more.


The contest starts on September 13, 2010 (yes, that’s today!) … and ends on September 17, 2010.

Each winner will receive hotel accommodations on October 15th and 16th, 2010 at one of the participating hotels – Ink 48 or The Muse Hotel – and two tickets to the Meet the Breeds event.
