How to Submit Photographs:
Visit PARTICIPATE/ENTER CONTEST
and follow the directions to upload a photograph of your pet along with up to 25 words describing your photo. Use the social media links within the contest to promote your pet to your friends and family for votes. Be very CAREFUL as the contest approaches the cut-off time
. Attempting to process last minute donation votes can be tricky, because we do not have control over processing time. A few seconds can make the difference between winning and losing, so try not to cut it too close to the finish line when applying your votes.
Public Voting For Pets:
Winners will be determined by the number of votes received per pet photo at the conclusion of the contest. Once a pet photo is submitted, it will appear in the online gallery, and be open to voting by the general public.
- Each vote is $1 with a minimum donation of $5 for each transaction.
- All votes for photo submissions will be tabulated and displayed online.
- Due to electronic processing variables out of our control, voters should be cautious when applying votes during the final seconds of the contest.
