Media Advisory - Purina® set to deliver puppy love across Toronto to celebrate #NationalPuppyDay

Five lucky Torontonians will be surprised with "Random Acts of Puppy"

TORONTO, March 20, 2017 /CNW/ - What's better than a visit from a puppy? How about a visit from four puppies?!

The cutest day of the year is on the horizon and Purina Puppy Chow® is gearing up to celebrate the 11th annual National Puppy Day by delivering Random Acts of Puppy to five lucky Torontonians who could use a visit from the Purina® Puppy Squad, a group of furry four-legged friends.

That's right, you heard that correctly. On March 23, 2017, Purina Puppy Chow® will deliver the warm and fuzzies on the Purina® Puppy Mobile. Coming right to your doorstep, the Purina® Puppy Squad and four Portuguese Water Dog puppies will be travelling around Toronto spreading the puppy love. 

Earlier this month, the leading Canadian puppy food brand invited Torontonians to nominate their friends and family by sharing a story on @PurinaCanada's Facebook and Instagram channels on why their friend or family deserves a visit (certain restrictions apply, see here for more details).

In addition to Random Acts of Puppy, Purina Puppy Chow® is hoping to bring a little puppy magic to Canadians on National Puppy Day.

See below to learn how Canadians can take part in the celebration:

  • Snapchat! If you've ever wanted to be a puppy surrounded by a group of puppies, now's your chance. On March 23, 2017, Purina Puppy Chow® is launching a National Puppy Day Snapchat Lens, inviting Canadians to transform into their favourite furry friend.
  • Purina® PawsWay: In honour of National Puppy Day, PawsWay's Basic Agility class from 12 - 2 pm will be FREE. We will also be offering a FREE Puppy Care/Training class from 2:30 – 3:30 pm on March 23, 2017, thanks to Purina Puppy Chow®.
