How does your pet smile? With his tail? Eyes? Or maybe a full-body wiggle? Please join our 25th anniversary celebration by entering our photo contest fundraiser to share how your pet smiles.
Winning photos will be used in RedRoverís 2013 Pet Smiles Calendar, and winners will receive other great prizes, including a $200 gift certificate, a custom dog house, and an amazing cat tower.
Entering the contest is FREE and open to everyone. Votes cost just $1 each. We hope to raise $25,000 for our RedRover Relief program through the photo contest Ė enough to provide more than 150 pets with desperately needed emergency veterinary care.
You know 10 people willing to each give $10 (or more!) to the animals, right? Our hope is to get 250 smiling pet entries from animal lovers just like you in order to reach our goal. Together, we can do it! So please, enter a submission, vote and share our contest with your friends and family.
There are many ways to win!
Thirteen winners will be chosen from the 25 top-voted finalists by a panel of judges selected by RedRover, including Victoria Stilwell of Animal Planetís "Itís Me or the DogĒ show. Judges may select up to three photos from all entries, regardless of the number of votes achieved, to add to the finalists.
