(PRESS RELEASE) Since 2014, Bozeman, MT-based pet product manufacturer West Paw has offered the chance for its retail partners to win a free trip to Montana. This year West Paw announces Michael Palmer from Premier Pet Supply in Beverly Hills, MI, spent his Fourth of July with his son, Roman, among the bears, wolves, coyotes and elk that inhabit Yellowstone National Park. (Yellowstone is located 1.5 hours from West Paw’s headquarters in Bozeman, MT.)

Michael and his son, Roman, won:

• Airfare for two (from anywhere in the U.S. to Montana)
• First-rate hotel accommodations (five nights)
• Car rental (it’s a big state, and horses take too long)
• National Parks Pass
• Tour of West Paw’s manufacturing facility
• Five days to explore the state

“Roman and I had the best time! It was an awesome trip for us. We saw and did a lot of amazing things. We hiked a few miles in the backcountry and set up camp in what seemed to be the middle of nowhere. It was really beautiful along a rushing river. On the hike back, a bear crossed our path. Thank you and everyone at West Paw for a trip of a lifetime,” says Michael Palmer, owner, Premier Pet Supply.

“This popular contest gives all of us at West Paw the opportunity to meet incredible people like Michael and his son, Roman. By inviting winners to Montana to tour our factory and meet with our staff, we gather insights from successful business owners like Michael. This information is invaluable for all of our employees and it is such a treat for the employees to meet the people who are on the front line, selling the products they make,” says Spencer Williams, president and CEO of West Paw.


Each year, West Paw chooses a period of time when a retailer purchase automatically enters them into a database. The company then randomly selects a winner who is given a year to complete their trip to Montana.
