Capture a photo of your pet (cat or dog or other pet) in their favorite place and enter to win. It can be an indoor spot by the fire or possibly on your bed or hiding in the laundry basket! Or a place your pet loves to visit outside of your house, perhaps the dog park or joining you on the sidewalk at your favorite coffee place! It's up to you, just take the best picture of your pet, demonstrating how much they are enjoying their favorite place and submit your entry to our contest!
As this is a fundraising drive for the homeless and abandoned animals at SPARC, there is a small entry fee of $5 for each photo you enter, but you also get the chance to WIN great prizes, so please feel free to donate more if you like!

The top overall fundraiser will have first choice of one of the prizes from the list below. The second overall fundraiser will have second choice of one of the remaining three prizes from the list below.
