MAKE YOUR PET A STAR
ENTER THE SHELTER’S PHOTO CONTEST!
GREAT FALLS, Montana – Do you have a dog or cat that was born to be a star? Is your pet ready to join the glitterati of Great Falls? The Great Falls Animal Shelter is sponsoring a Pet Photo Contest and is scouting for the best looking pets (photos) in town. Now is the perfect opportunity for your four-legged friend to make their debut and embrace the spotlight. The top 12 winning entries will be featured in a colorful, full-sized 2014 Shelter Calendar. All proceeds from the calendar fundraiser will go towards the Shelter Adoption Fund, which allows the Shelter to run adoption promotions at discounted prices.
Entering the Pet Photo Contest is easy. Grab your camera and start snapping photos of your pet. Upload your best photo at http://gbcphotocontest.com/greatfallsanimalshelter/. The first photo entry costs $10, and includes a 2014 calendar (all additional photo entries are $5). Only the 12 photos with the most votes will be included in the calendar. Encourage your friends and family members to go online and vote often for your pet’s photo! Each vote costs only a $1. Contestants must have permission to use or submit photos.
The contest runs through Monday, September 2. Over 16 photos have already been submitted, so don’t delay – upload yours today! For more information about the Pet Photo Contest contact Laura McElhinney, Volunteer Coordinator, at 406-771-1180 X 369.
