Press the Shutter to Support the Shelter!
Grab your props and set up the camera because the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County wants the cutest, suavest, and silliest pets! We're all looking for something to do during this stay-at-home period, so what could be better than spending an afternoon playing with and playing up the best aspects of your pet?
We invite you to submit your pet's photo, and vote on other pet photos, so we can award some seriously amazing prizes and help our animals. This is not only a fun competition, it's a fun-draiser! The money you raise in this competition will help ACSKC continue to rescue, rehabilitate, and place pets in loving homes throughout Kent County and beyond.
At the close of the contest, professional photo shoots will take place in preparation of the final product. These colorful, full-size publications will be available in Spring 2021, and are available for pre-order. Once printed, you'll be able to pick them up at the shelter (pandemic permitting) or catch us at our booth at the weekly Farmer's Market! 100% of all proceeds will benefit the programs and services of ACSKC.
It's just $5.00 to submit your pet's photo, and only $1.00 per vote! So, let's have a good time, give some prizes, and support a great cause.
