SECOND ANNUAL PET ‘NET EVENT

Pet-Centric Bloggers & Site Editors To Raise Voices In Unison
To Shine Spotlight on Pet Safety
Petside.com to Feature Event Hub at www.petside.com/pet-net-2009
Join me tomorrow right here on Have Dog, Will Blog as I join fellow pet bloggers in an effort to heighten awareness about critical issues related to pet safety. Petside.com (http://www.petside.com), the popular online destination for pet owners and pet enthusiasts from NBC Digital Networks, has organized a consortium of some of the Web’s favorite pet-focused sites to launch the Pet ‘Net Safety.
I am going to tackle my on-going search for the best pet friendly cleaning products. As always, I welcome your input!
Petside.com will host a comprehensive one-page hub (www.petside.com/pet-net-2009) with links to all of the special coverage. Additionally, Petside will join forces with the Associated Press to conduct a poll and collect data on people’s behavior and attitudes related to the safety of their pets, the results of which will be released tomorrow.

"Common household dangers threaten our pets on a daily basis," said Joshua Fried, Director of Petside.com. “By raising our collective voice at once, we hope The Pet ‘Net Safety Event will help focus some much-needed attention to these important issues.”
The inaugural Pet ‘Net Event took place in October 2008 and successfully employed the combined reach of a more than dozen websites to raise awareness about animal shelter adoption. This year, participating writers will focus their efforts around issues related to pet safety. Topics covered will range from holiday dangers to travel safety to first aid tips.
