MEDINA, Ohio, Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Bil-Jac, a family owned and operated leading manufacturer of super premium dog foods and treats, is calling for stories of canine heroism with the launch of their first Bravest Best Friend Facebook Contest. Bil-Jac is creating the contest in an effort to further connect the nation's community of dog lovers and to provide support of America's VetDogs®, an organization that serves the needs of disabled veterans and active duty personnel. Entries will be collected online at Facebook.com/BilJacDogFood from November 16 through December 31.

Bil-Jac is giving Facebook fans the opportunity to post a photo and story of their dog's exceptional K9 courage, explaining why their dog deserves to be named Bil-Jac's Bravest Best Friend. Fans entering the contest may send invitations to their Facebook friends, asking them to vote for their story and picture.

The three most "liked" stories at the end of December will each win Bil-Jac dog food and cases of all-new America's VetDogs® treats. First place will receive a one-year supply (12 bags of food and 12 cases of treats); second place, a six-month supply (6 bags of food and 6 cases of treats); and third place, a one month supply (1 bag of food and 1 case of treats).

Additionally, Bil-Jac will donate $0.10 per vote to the America's VetDogs® organization. "Bil-Jac is proud to host this Facebook contest not only because it brings our community of dog lovers together in support of the America's VetDogs®'s cause," says Jim Kelly, Executive Vice President, Bil-Jac Foods, "but also because it celebrates the brave pups that exemplify the definition of 'man's best friend'."
