The Humane Society is holding a pet photo contest

But if you send them a pic, you have to promise to send us one, too! We need some pics for next month's Reader Photo Spotlight Contest!

To celebrate Spay Day USA and share the message that spaying and neutering improves pets' lives, The Humane Society of the United States invites you to enter our online photo contest for pets! It's fun and it's free.

To enter, simply upload a digital photo of your beloved pet and briefly tell us how he or she has made a difference in your life. Your furry (or feathered or finned) pal will then compete with other pets for a chance to win dozens of cool prizes!

There are two ways to win: Our celebrity judges will award fabulous prizes to 36 entrants judged to have the best photos and stories -- and the Grand Prize winner will receive a custom portrait of their pet, valued at $1,400, from premier pet photographer Amanda Jones. Ten runners up will receive custom pet portraits by one of two artists, and 25 honorable mentions will receive gift baskets featuring products from contest sponsors Nature’s Miracle and GPS-maker Zoombak. You can also get votes for your pet to win other prizes. After you’ve entered the contest, you can forward your pet’s photo to friends and family and ask them to vote.

The top 500 pets by popular vote will each receive a bottle of Nature’s Miracle and be entered in a drawing to win one of ten custom pet portraits by one of two artists. Check out our contest rules and enter your pet today!

The HSUS's annual Spay Day USA campaign highlights spaying or neutering pets as an effective and humane solution to the tragic problem of pet overpopulation. Spay Day USA is February 26, 2008. I hope I'll see your pet in the contest soon. Thank you for all you do for animals.
