Contest has ended. Eastern Time


 Contest Entry 
  • To submit your pet’s photo, a minimum $25 donation is required. This amount will enter you into the contest. The entry fee will be included in the overall funds donated to your campaign.
  • Entries must be submitted online. You may submit as many entries as you like. However, if friends or family members are encouraged to spread their votes out over multiple campaigns, this will reduce the chance of each pet photo winning a prize in the contest.
  • Once entered, all photos become the property of Michigan Humane to be used for print and marketing purposes.
  • Any photo or caption deemed inappropriate as determined by the staff of Michigan Humane will be removed from the photo contest
