Press Release Writer and Animal Lover - Writing Sample

Below is a press release I wrote for Paw Country, a heatlthy pet store in La Mesa, CA.
I will be including other writing samples in future blog posts.

Paw Country Hosts Pet Food and Toy Drive

Paw Country is hosting a pet food and toy drive through the end of the year. Paw Country’s goal is to collect 500 pounds of food, as well as toys and other pet products. All items collected will be donated to the San Diego Animal Support Foundation to improve the welfare of animals in shelters and rescues throughout the community.

The San Diego Animal Support Foundation is committed to helping the animals of San Diego by providing support to legitimate, local non-profit organizations. Additionally, at no cost to the local shelters and rescues, the Animal Support Foundation teams up with local media partners to feature adoptable pets on television every day. More information about the San Diego Animal Support Foundation is available at

To help encourage donations to the drive, as well as ease the pocketbook for holiday shoppers, Paw Country is currently having a year-end sale, which includes both small and big-ticket items. While you are out doing your holiday shopping, don’t forget your four legged friends!
