Announcing our first-ever Holiday Kitty Photo Contest!

by Chun-Soon on November 19, 2014

We do a lot of doggie-contests with doggie-prizes; this one’s for the Kitties.

One thing we love at ProspectBArk is seeing our cats each holiday season. Many of them, we don’t see all year! But when October rolls around, the emails and calls starting coming in for holiday cat care, and we are ready. Let the Kitties come!

There are three really great prizes for this photo contest:

The People’s Choice Award: FREE SERVICE! Win a free weekend of cat-sits (worth $50) for 1-2 kitties in the same household. This will be reflected as a credit on your account.

2nd Place Award: FREE ANIMAL MASSAGE SESSION  for one cat (worth $60). From Blissed Out Barklyn, our caretaker Jessica Miracola’s Massage Practise. Kitty sessions vary in length but are typically 30-40 mins long. Jessica came and worked on our elderly cat, Ruben, who is usually aloof with guests. He purred so much he drooled all over her lap, and did not stop purring until she left the house!

And the GRAND PRIZE, worth $150, is a one-of-a-kind, handmade ceramic cat water fountain from ThirstyCatFountains.com! Both Matt and Chun-Soon have these for their cats (but our resident dogs Chewie and Stella love to drink from them, too). Each one is designed and crafted by Keith Davitt and Jackie McKannay, and they are works of art as well as functional! Visit their website to view all the gorgeous designs. The Grand Prize will be a gift certificate worth $150, which means you can basically choose the one you want!  (90% of them are under this price). Here is one called the Featherspray:

TO ENTER: 

Post your photo to our facebook page with the kitty’s name and neighborhood, and a few sentences about him or her.

Or, you can email the photo with this information to us directly at chunsoon@prospectbark.com. We will post your entry for you!

Contest deadline to get your photo in is midnight, Dec 24th, and the winners will be announced on Christmas Day! Good luck!!

Canine Massage is gaining recognition, and why not? As any human who’s experienced the healing benefits of massage knows,  a good practitioner can reduce pain, discomfort and anxiety.  While our dogs don’t share the same worries we do (about climate change, for example) – they are still made of the same muscular/skeletal framework, and they can receive the same beneficial results.

We have been helping our  All-Star Walker, Jessica Miracola, complete her certification at the Bancroft School of Massage Therapy.  Their Small Animal Program is a rigorous, 7 month intensive which includes courses in Small Animal Anatomy & Physiology, Animal Health / Bio-Security, Species and Breeds, Animal Massage Techniques, Animal First Aid / CPR, Passive Range of Motion, and Intro to Biomechanics. Jessica is due to graduate this Fall, and in 2015 will be offering her expert care and loving Massage services to the pets of NYC. She will be offering discounted sessions to all ProspectBArk and RiversideBArk clients!

As a part of her program Internship, Jessica is offering a limited number of FREE, comprehensive Canine Massage sessions to our clients. The total time for each session will be about an hour; actual hands-on time will vary with the individual dogs and what they need. If you are interested in booking a session for your pup, please fill out the form below and we will get back to you ASAP.

ProspectBArk's team at the WCS Run, 2014

WE DID IT! On Saturday, April 26th, our team of volunteer elephant-runners woke up at 5am and trekked to the Bronx Zoo for the Wildlife Conservation Society’s 6th annual Run for the Wild. This year, funds raised from the run benefit the organization 96 Elephants, which is named after the number of African elephants poached per day.

The ProspectBArk team raised $1,870.00 in donations to the WCS and 96 Elephants. It was great to see so many people joining forces and caring about this. With 12 participants and over 64 donors, our staff, clients and friends really pulled together for our first WCS run! It was so much fun, and such a worthy cause. THANK YOU to all our clients, friends and runners!
