It’s a fun annual project that raises money for a good cause. The Humane Society provides a spay and neuter program, a feral cat program, and education about the humane treatment of animals, among other efforts. The pet photo contest is an important part of its fund-raising efforts.

So if you’ve got a favorite photo of your pet, we hope you’ll enter it. Entries are being accepted at Guynn’s Income Tax and Bookkeeping Service, The Little Framery, Troy Antiques and Jinright’s Hillside Antiques, or contestant owners can mail entries to Pet Photo Contest, P.O. Box 296, Troy, AL 36081.

And, even if you don’t make an entry, we hope you’ll take the time to cast a vote for your favorite photo this year. Votes are only $1 each.
