As you may know, February is Pet Parent Month. A month where organizations and us pet owners take some extra time to remember why we own pets, care for them, and love them and all the special things they bring into our lives. Many shelters and organizations have planned special adoption events, educational events, playmates, and more to celebrate the joy of having a pet.
The Mayor’s Alliance of New York is also celebrating by holding a photo contest. From now till February 28, 2012 at 11:59pm, all pet owners can enter the contest. If you live in NYC, you can enter the contest for a chance to win a prize and have your photo seen by other New Yorkers.
To enter all you need to do is submit a photo of your pet or you and your pet with a brief caption. The caption should describe why you think your pet is the quintessential, lovable Little New Yorker. Maybe your cat loves bagels or your dog likes sunning himself in Washington Square Park listening to people play guitar and play chess.
The photos are posted to the Facebook page of the Mayor’s Alliance of New York where you, your friends, and a bunch of people can vote on their favorite ones. The contest ends on February 28, 2012 at 11:59pm EST.
The photos that have received the most votes will be chosen as the winners. The announcement will be posted on the Facebook page. There will be three winners picked with a special article that will appear on the Mayor’s Alliance website and blog in March. The winning photos will also appear on the website’s homepage.
The prize is a I Love NYC pets t-shirt along with the article and your photo on the sites. So come on, enter the contest. Show off and tell everyone why your hamster, cat, bird, fish, or dog is the best Little New Yorker around!
