PetSafe Announces Partnership With One Knoxville SC Soccer Team And Launches Vote For Mascot

As PetSafe® celebrates its 25th anniversary, it is rolling out a fresh new look and is on a mission to create “fields of joy” where pets can be happy, healthy and safe, whether in a backyard, a playing field or a dog park.

To make their mission a reality, PetSafe is partnering with One Knoxville Sporting Club (One Knox) to create fields of joy together for players, pets and families alike. In addition to proudly displaying the PetSafe name on the players’ warmup jerseys, PetSafe is asking fans and pet lovers to help choose the first official One Knox mascot.

“For more than two decades, PetSafe has saved more than 11 million dogs from harm and it is our mission to unleash a lifetime of joy for pets and their families” said Karla Attanasio, Director of Marketing for PetSafe. “It is a natural extension of that commitment to partner with a fantastic team like One Knoxville SC who put their hearts into every game played on their field. We are proud to help them select their official mascot, naturally, a dog and help train that pup to be a shining example of both of our brands who will cheer and entertain crowds for years to come.”

With help from Young Williams Animal Center (YWAC), the southeast’s largest animal shelter, PetSafe will profile six rescue dogs from YWAC so fans can vote for their favorites. As we search for forever homes for all six dogs, one lucky pup will be chosen by fans to become the team’s official mascot and will be placed in a loving forever home with a One Knoxteam member.

Following the official announcement of the mascot, fans will be invited to watch as PetSafe trains the fan-favorite pup to be the best, most enthusiastic, mascot possible and star in a six-part content series launching later this summer.

Mascot voting opened on July 18 at 8:15 p.m. EST on the PetSafe official Instagram channel (@PetSafe) and voting will close on July 21 at 11:59 a.m EST.
