AGREEMENT TO THE OFFICIAL RULES: By participating in the Sweepstakes, each Entrant fully and unconditionally agrees to and accepts these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsors and the Administrator, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Winning any prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.
HOW TO ENTER: No purchase is necessary to enter nor will a purchase increase your chances of winning. To enter, take a picture of your pet during the Entry Period, May 1 through May 15, 2014, and submit your photo to the Quorum Insurance, LLC, Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/QuorumInsurance.

WINNER SELECTION: On or about June 2, 2014, two (2) winners will be selected in a drawing from all the eligible entries received.

Each winner will be notified by phone and will be required to sign and return a Statement of Eligibility, Release of Liability and Prize Acceptance form within 7 business days of receipt.

If a prize is refused, a prize notification is returned or deemed undeliverable, or the potential winner is disqualified for any reason, an alternate winner will be selected via a random drawing. Except where prohibited by law, acceptance of the prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use winner’s name, hometown, likeness, statements, and other personally identifiable information for promotional, advertising and marketing purposes in any media throughout the world without additional prize, incentive, consideration, consent or review; and upon request, winner will provide written consent to such use.
