Movie Contest Supports Animal Rescue Efforts



Fun Academy Motion Pictures, the production company behind the much-anticipated animated feature film Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero, is celebrating National Love Your Pet Day by hosting a Sgt. Stubby lookalike contest to highlight how life-changing animal adoption can be and to support the efforts of animal rescue organizations across the country.


In theaters nationwide April 13th, Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero is based on the true story of a small stray who was rescued off the streets by an American soldier on the eve of World War I. With the love of his new family, Stubby rises above his beginnings to become a true, four-legged hero, making him an important figure in the world of animal adoption. Recognized today as the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, Sgt. Stubby is widely considered the forerunner of the U.S. Army's working dog program.


CONTEST RULES:  Animal rescue organizations may submit the photo of one adoptable dog they feel resembles Sgt. Stubby to Fun Academy via email between Feb. 20-27, 2018. On Feb. 28, submitted photos will be displayed on the Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero Facebook page and will be eligible for voting until March 8:


PRIZES:  Winning organizations will be announced via Facebook March 9, 2018.  One grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 donation and second and third place winners will each receive $250. Additionally, the first 100 entrants will be awarded $50 to assist with adoption fees.
