Kadena AFB — Kadena Main Exchange guests who think they have a top dog…or cat…or bird or reptile … can try to fetch their share of $150 in prizes during the Patriot Pet contest.
 
Guests are encouraged to sign their pet up in store at the Kadena Main from May 6th through May 13th for the chance to win “Most Patriotic Pet!” Owners must provide their name, the name of their, as well as their contact information. The event will be held from 1200-1600 on May 14th. First-prize winner will receive a $75 Exchange gift card, and second-place winner will take home a $50 gift card, while the Third-place winner will earn a $25 gift card. 
 
“For many of our military personnel, pets are considered an important part of their family, providing love and companionship and easing stress of daily duties,” said Kadena Main Exchange Store Manager, Ann Yi. “With the Patriot Pet contest, the Exchange salutes these furry, fuzzy, feathered—and sometimes even scaly—members of the military family.”
 
Besides the in-store contest, Kadena Main Exchange guests wanting to unleash their pet’s best-in-show potential can enter Fluffy and Fido in the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s worldwide Patriot Pet Just Say Treat online photo contest for a chance at a $1,000 grand prize. 
 
From May 6th through June 2nd, authorized shoppers can upload a photo of their prized pet at www.shopmyexchange.com/sweepstakes. One grand-prize winner will take home a $1,000 Exchange gift card, while two first-place winners will each receive $500 gift cards. Four third-place winners will nab $250 gift cards each. 
 
Rules and more information for the online contest can be found at www.shopmyexchange.com/sweepstakes once the contest launches. Just Say Treat winners will be notified toward the end of June.
