HOMEAGAIN ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF BRING PETS HOME SHOPPING SWEEPSTAKES


Florida Resident Wins $5,000; Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary to Receive Matching Prize

Summit NJ, June 4, 2010 - HomeAgain® Pet Recovery Service has announced the winner of the Bring Pets Home Shopping Sweepstakes, conducted from November 23, 2009 through January 31, 2010. Neal T. Landani of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. is the Grand Prize winner and recipient of $5,000. He has chosen Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary in Jupiter, Fla. to receive a matching $5,000 donation.

More than 140 leading online retailers such as iTunes, Macy's, Netflix, Nordstrom, Sephora and Wal-Mart partnered with Bring Pets Home, a HomeAgain fundraising program to benefit animal shelters. When shoppers linked to retail websites from the Bring Pets Home website, the retailers donated a portion of the purchase price to help shelters across the country at no additional cost to the shoppers. As a result, approximately 100 animal shelters across the country are receiving "commissions" on those sales. HomeAgain also made contributions to the Bring Pets Home program to fund various promotions benefiting homeless animals in shelters, such as the Holiday Shopping Sweepstakes.

"We have just purchased a 28-acre ranch for our no-kill sanctuary and are kicking off a capital campaign. We are so excited to be the recipients of the $5,000 donation from the HomeAgain sweepstakes drawing," said Kay-Lynette Roca, founding CEO, Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary & Hospital. "The timing is perfect and we are so grateful to HomeAgain. We believe in the product 100 percent. No animal leaves our shelter without being microchipped."

Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary's mission is to rescue homeless animals in need. Those that are injured, neglected, and abused take top priority. Safe Harbor refuses to believe that euthanasia is the only option for pet overpopulation. It offers low-cost spay/neuter services and a full service veterinary hospital which is open to the public.
