One Pet-Wise Parent Awarded Professional Photo Shoot and 10-Year Supply of Pet Food


TEWKSBURY, Mass. – (September 8, 2011) – Lights…camera…sit…stay!  Holistic Selectâ Natural Pet Food is pleased to announce Danielle Gossett of Olive Branch, MS, and her dog Josey, a Dogue de Bordeaux, have been named the grand prize winners in the Holistic Select Casting Call contest and will star in an upcoming print ad for the brand. The Holistic Select Casting Call, hosted on Facebook, invited photo and caption submissions from pet-wise parents who embrace a holistic lifestyle not only for themselves but also for their pets. In their winning pose, Gossett and Josey share a hug and their recipe for optimal pet health: exercise, belly rubs, and Holistic Select. Gossett and Josey will now sit for a professional photo shoot and will be featured in the brand’s upcoming advertisements.  The dynamic duo also won a 10-year supply of Holistic Select natural pet food.


“I was so excited when I found out we had won!” said Gossett. “Josey is such a loving and loyal member of our family and we’re so lucky to have her in our lives.  Giving her Holistic Select has always been the right choice for us to keep her happy and healthy, and it really keeps her fur silky!”


In addition to the grand prize winner, 15 “Fan Favorites” were selected by members of Holistic Select’s Facebook community.  Each fan favorite won a one-year supply of Holistic Select natural pet food, with its exclusive digestive balance system that encourages proper digestion of food and ideal absorption and distribution of nutrients.


“We’re thrilled to add Danielle and her dog Josey to the Holistic Select family,” said Thano Chaltas, chief marketing officer, WellPet.  “Danielle’s entry of herself and Josey sharing a loving embrace is a great testament to the spirit of a pet-wise parent.”


Like Gossett, pet-wise parents recognize that while nutrition is the core of whole body health, other factors, such as education, socialization, physical health, and environment also contribute to our pets’ overall well-being. Holistic Select recently teamed up with leading pet experts and veterinarians to design an interactive tool that helps pet parents evaluate the holistic health of their dogs and cats.  Visit for more information.
