Submit a photo of your pet. Provide a few short sentences why your pet is the cutest. Photos should be digital and sharp enough to look good on the internet. No photos of people
, just your pet. Photos should be in focus to show off your amazing Pet Pal.
There is a $10 fee to post your pet, but you automatically receive 10 votes when you enter your pet! If you have multiple pets, you will need to take separate photos of each and post them separately. The $10 posting fee applies to each pet you enter.
Pet owners are encouraged to have their friends, relatives, and co-workers go to the contest website and vote for their pet.
Votes cost $1.00 per vote with no maximum on how many votes a person can buy. For example, you can give 100 votes to your favorite pet by donating $100 in a single transaction via the website and come back to the site as many times as you want and donate votes as often as you'd like.
Pet owners themselves will be able to buy as many votes as they'd like too.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will be awarded by the Northern Kiwanis Club of Columbus Foundation to promote youth literacy and education.
Prizes will be awarded to the Top 10 Pets
that receive the most votes.
