A radio station’s plans to give away a puppy has angered some listeners who have voiced their disgust on Facebook.
The Edge’s “Puppy or Pound” competition asks applicants to state why they would be a good owner of ‘Bella’ a 17 week old Shitzu Spitz cross which had been gifted to breakfast host JJ Feeney by an Auckland pet store.
One former listener emailed Dan News saying “This is absolutely disgusting. In such a high profile arena to be advertising their lack of commitment to a pet as a ‘competition’ is downright disgraceful. Responsible pet ownership is such an important campaign in itself and yet they have completely disregarded this.”
Some posts on Facebook defend the competition saying they will continue to listen to The Edge “no matter what”
What do you think of the competition?
