The deadline for the Humane Society of Pike County’s Annual Pet Photo Contest has been extended a week to Aug. 22 at the request of pet owners.

“We have had a lot of requests to extend the deadline because of the busyness of the final days of summer and preparing for the open of school, said Lisa Howard, event chair.

“We want to give all pet owners an opportunity to get their pet photos in so we are extending the deadline from Aug. 15 to the 22.
