JAMESTOWN - The Chautauqua County Humane Society announced the fifth annual Hot Dogs, Cool Cats online pet photo contest.
The contest allows participants to upload digital photos of their beloved companion(s) and share a story about their pet in a competition for prizes and the title of "CCHS 2013 Pet of the Year."
The contest will award three prize packages to entrants whose photos and accompanying narratives are voted as the best by website visitors. The top 12 vote getters will be displayed on the 2013 CCHS pet calendar. Each Tuesday morning for four weeks, a weekly "Playful Pet Prize Package" will be awarded to the top vote getter for that week.
Additionally, every person who votes will be entered into the voter drawing for a prize package. All winners will be notified on Feb. 2 after the contest results have been officially verified.
The contest began on Tuesday, Jan. 1 at one second after midnight and runs through Thursday, January 31 at one second to midnight. Entrants are to click on the link to the pet photo contest, upload photo(s), add contact information and story and then promote for votes. There is no charge to enter the contest, and the $1 cost per vote - minimum of five votes - will benefit the homeless and neglected pets awaiting adoption at the Chautauqua County Humane Society in Jamestown.
