The Chautauqua County Humane Society is holding the fourth annual Hot Dogs, Cool Cats online pet photo contest sponsored by Media One Group, Jon Elder Photography Productions and Invisible Fence of Erie.
The contest allows participants to upload digital photos of their beloved companion and share a brief description of their pet. The contest will award three prize packages to entrants whose pictures and accompanying narratives are voted as the best by the viewers. The top 12 photos will be featured in the Chautauqua County Humane Society's 2012 calendar.
The contest runs through Jan. 31. Entrants can log on to www.spcapets.com, click on the link to the pet photo contest, upload their pictures, add contact info/comments and then promote voting. There is no charge to enter the contest, and the $1 cost per vote, with a minimum of five votes, will benefit the animals awaiting adoption at the Chautauqua County Humane Society.
Homer was the 2011 grand prize winner of the Hot Dogs, Cool Cats online pet photo contest and the 2011 Chautauqua County Humane Society Pet of the Year.
Contestants are urged to tell friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, and acquaintances to vote for their pet so they can be in the running to become the Chautauqua County Humane Society's Pet of the Year for 2012.
The grand prize photo will also be used in literature for the Humane Society and the pet and its owner will be invited to make special guest appearances at specified Humane Society events throughout 2012.
Additional contest sponsors include Just Pets of Irving, M.A.C. Truck Parts & Equipment Co. Inc. of Jamestown and Tail Waggers Boutique of Fredonia.
