Sweepstakes Launches in Honor of Tony Stewart’s Return to the Track

Adams Flea and Tick Control and Code 3 Associates Team up to Help Pets
in Need

WALNUT CREEK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ready, set, go! The makers of Adams™ Flea & Tick Control have teamed up
with Code 3 Associates, a national non-profit that rescues animals
during disasters, and their spokesperson, three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup
Series champion Tony Stewart, in the race to help animals. A national
sweepstakes and cause marketing program launches today that coincides
with Stewart driving the No. 14 Code 3 Associates/Mobil 1 Chevrolet in
Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover (Del.) International
Speedway.


The Rev Up VIP Racing Experience Sweepstakes runs until July 1, 2016 and
offers fans the chance to win a behind-the-scenes VIP racing experience
and a chance to meet Stewart. Fans can enter by going to www.adamspetcare.com/revup.
In addition, Adams Flea and Tick Control is pledging $1 from each sale
of Adams™ shampoo and Adams™ spray flea and tick products this summer,
up to $150,000, to support ongoing pet rescue efforts.

Stewart is also helping get the word out about pet safety, as summer
creates potential, everyday dangers.

“Never leave a pet in the car, even with the window cracked,” Stewart
says. “Cars get really hot, really fast. Don’t risk your pet’s health.”

In fact, every year hundreds of pets die from heat exhaustion because
they are left in parked cars. Especially during the summer, pet owners
should be mindful that temperatures inside a car can increase almost 20
degrees in just 10 minutes.

Additional safety tips to help pet owners steer clear of trouble this
summer:

  • Provide plenty of water and shade to help protect pets from overheating
  • Save the outdoor play time for mornings or evenings when it’s cooler
  • Protect against flea and tick infestations. The summer heat triggers
    flea and tick outbreaks and products like Adams™ flea and tick sprays
    and shampoos help keep pets free from fleas and ticks
