Just in time for Christmas, The Animal Store is running its first-ever online contest. As some of you may know, The Animal Store was named after the wonderful poem of the same name written by Rachel Fields.

The first stanza of the poem goes like this:

If I had $100 to spend,
Or maybe a little more
I’d hurry as fast as my legs would go
Straight to the Animal Store.

100-gift-card-art-copyFor a second entry, you can Twitter about this contest (please leave a separate comment below linking to your tweet). That’s a maximum of two entries per person (one comment; one comment about your tweet). Be sure to leave your email address so we can contact you if you win.

Our store is located in Lincolnwood, just north of Chicago. Out-of-town readers are welcome to enter and are eligible to win; we will be happy to ship anything you purchase with the $100 gift card, but please remember that applicable shipping charges apply and may not be charged to the gift card. Family members and staff should refrain from entering this contest and give someone else a chance to win.

One runner-up will be chosen to win one of our cool new t-shirts featuring an edgy version of our logo. Enter today — you can spend your $100 at The Animal Store buying a pet for a gift, or gifts for your favorite pet.

Good luck. And remember, gift cards are a great way to give a pet for Christmas — and they are much easier to wrap!
