Pet Paradise holds ‘Life is Short, Make a Splash’ campaign

Pet Paradise, a Palm Coast pet boarding and day camp company, is taking nominations for non-profits for its Life is Short, Make a Splash campaign.

Charities must be registered 501c3 nonprofits based in the Unites States, and may only be nominated by a Pet Paradise customer.

Noncustomers may support the campaign by buying a “Life is Short, Make a Splash” T-shirt or magnet at any Pet Paradise locations.

About 40 nominations have been received so far, and nominations will be accepted through May 31.

“The response has been thrilling so far, and we are looking forward to the impact that this is going to make within the community,” Pet Paradise Chief Operating Officer Fernando Acosta-Rua said in a Pet Paradise press release.

Voting will begin June 1 and continue until Aug. 31.

The nonprofit with the most votes will receive a $10,000 donation from Pet Paradise.
