South Charleston, WV (February 22, 2015) — Wild, Wonderful West Virginia, in collaboration with the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association, today hosted a West FURginia Dog Treat Baking Party and announced the launch of the West FURginia Friday campaign.

The event coincided with the announcement of the “West FURginia Friday” campaign, set to launch February 26. This weekly contest encourages folks to share photos of their furry friends exploring pet-friendly adventures, shops and stops in West Virginia. Weekly winners will receive a custom “#WestFURginia” collar.

“We are excited to promote and encourage pet friendly travel in the Mountain State,” Commissioner of Tourism Amy Shuler Goodwin said. “Whether your pet enjoys the snow, long hikes (our dog Gus loves to barrel down trails with my boys), fine dining, or naps in the sunshine, West Virginia has a wealth of both indoor and outdoor destinations for you to enjoy together.”

To enter: Email your pet’s photo to [email protected] and include their name, photo location and favorite West Virginia activity. The winner will be announced each Friday at noon and be featured on the “West FURginia Friday” pinterest board / social media posts and receive a custom #WestFURginia collar. Other entries may be featured on GoToWV social media.
