People who love their pets and have a knack for capturing cool pics can enter the Oregon Humane Society's Fuzzy, Furry & Feathered Friends Photo Contest.
The 26th-annual contest and fundraiser for OHS spotlights all kinds of pets, including cats, dogs, rabbits, rodents and birds. Photo entries for the contest can be of any pet, not only companion animals adopted from OHS.
This year's contest features a People's Choice voting system: Three winners will be chosen based on votes from the public. In addition, OHS staff members will select an OHS Choice winner.
The winning photo from one of the four categories (Dog, Cat, "Other" Pet and OHS Choice) will earn a place on the cover of the OHS magazine. All winners and runner-ups will be featured in the magazine. Each winner will also receive a professionally framed copy of the award-winning photo and a $200 gift certificate from contest sponsor NW Framing.
The deadline for submitting entries and voting online is Aug. 13. There is a $10 entry fee for submitting a photo; votes can be cast for $1 each. All proceeds go to help the animals at OHS. Last year, the Fuzzy, Furry & Feathered Friends Photo Contest raised more than $16,000 to help shelter pets.
