Paul Mann the CEO of Fetch! Pet Care, the nation’s largest dog walking and pet-sitting franchise, is looking for the best pet-rescue story. The winner will get to donate 10,000 free meals to the shelter of their choice. The deadline is Sunday. Visit www.facebook.com/fetchcorporate for more information.

What is your mission? My big mission is really to promote awareness for pets who need homes. The challenge that I see right now is there’s more pets than ever who don’t have homes. We want to hear more stories about how people rescue these pets, and in the end the pets really rescue them.

How can this contest help pet shelters?
The challenging part right now, with the economy, is that these shelters are doing all they can to maintain the budget to take care of all these pets. Their budgets are constantly getting cut. We wanna help out however we can — and 10,000 meals, for some shelters, that can feed all the pets in their shelter for a year.

How did rescuing your cat Finnigan change you?
My heart basically melted when I went down to the shelter and saw all of these animals without a home. I just wanted to take them all.
