National Pet Week May 5-11 - #HelloBetter iPhone 5s Giveaway

I received compensation from U.S. Cellular as part of their blogger program. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

I'm an owner of two fur babies, one puppy (a Labrabull) and a cat. Although they drive me up a wall, I love them just the same. National Pet Week is May 5 to 11 and it's a perfect time to download apps and learn all you can do from the palm of your hand to track your pet, find other animal lovers, and promote responsible pet ownership.

To enjoy your own celebration of National Pet Week, try these apps on your wireless devices:

•The Pet Planner app available in Google Play allows you to manage your pet’s schedule, shopping lists and medical history. Users can add multiple pets and set reminders for grooming appointments, flea/tick treatment and medication. This app gathers everything you need to remember about Fido and Fluffy in one easy-to-check information center.

The DoggyDatez app is a social platform that helps dog owners and their dogs make friends. Users can “mark their territory” and see who else visits their favorite pet-friendly location to meet up and play. You can also search for other DoggyDatez users by owner information, dog gender, dog age or breed.

Pet Rescue Saga, created by the developers of Candy Crush, lets users build their puzzle skills and save the animals. By matching two or more blocks of the same color, users advance through the levels and keep the cartoon pets safe. With hundreds of levels, Pet Rescue Saga is the purr-fect game for pet owners everywhere.

•For creative cats, the Paint for Cats iPad app features a mouse for pets to chase on the screen. Each time your cat swipes a paw across the area, it creates a colorful print or streak. In the end, users have unique paintings created by their pets.

Many animal shelters and rescues also offer apps, like HumaneTV from the Humane Society of the United States, that allow users to stay up-to-date on events and videos offered by animal welfare organizations.

I have an iPad Air from U.S. Cellular and have the Paint for Cats app. It's entertaining to see Pumpkin chase the mouse and get see the outcome of a creative painting. I also have an app from Humane Society for my dog that is microchipped. It will come in handy if my dog ever gets lost, and I'm able to input or modify information about my dog. To learn more about utilizing all your device has to offer through U.S. Cullar, I encourage you to attend a Device Workshop in your area.

Win It!

One person will win an iPhone 5s. (ARV $649)

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA. (This is a U.S. Cellular iPhone and it will not work on other carriers networks. You don't have to be a U.S. Cellular customer, but it only runs on a U.S. Cellular network.)

We have a small zoo at my house. Rascal the dog. 3 cats Max, angel, and black cat. Fudge the chinchilla. Baby the boa constrictor (he is now 6 feet long) and 2 rats named lucky ( the amount of rats we have as pets changes because if baby doesn't eat the rat that my husband buys for him I keep the rat as a pet. I think it is mean enough that the rat has to be in the tank so if it doesn't get eaten I won't let it be put back in the tank with baby. That's why I name them all lucky)

i used to be a pet owner of 2 rare breed gold & white doves. then passed them over to my mom, she took care of them for two years then she released them. i was so upset cause i wasnt even sure if they can live out on their own. i wish she would've told me so i can at least put them up for adoption and let someone have them and take care of them. i do want a cat though, a rare breed like a bengal or toyger but my parents aren't having it! lol. guess i gotta wait til i get my own place. ,btw the doggydatz app is hilarious! would love to see how that works would also love it if i can win so i can finally be an owner of a smartphone period.
