Portland, OR. If you love to take cute photos of your pets, this contest is for you. Your images can save help shelter pets and you might win a prize, including a two-night stay at the beach. Beauty comes in all species, so there are three categories: Top Dog, Top Cat and Top Other Pet. A fourth category—OHS Choice—will be selected by OHS staff from all photos submitted.

Top Dog?

Here’s a photo of Gepman, a 18-year-young cat who always has his purr motor running. 

Here are the details:

One of the winning photos will be on the cover of the OHS magazine. All winners and runners-ups will be featured in a magazine feature story.

This is the OHS Staff pick winner from 2017. Callie Attanasio was the winning photographer.

The winning photographers in each category will receive a professionally printed and framed photograph of their entry and a $200 gift card from Frame Central. Plus, each winner gets a special gift basket of pet treats and toys donated by local businesses. The grand prize winner, with the most overall votes, will receive a two-night stay at the Hallmark Inns on the Oregon coast.

There is a $10 fee to enter and $5 fee for five votes. All entry and voting fees go directly to help the animals at OHS. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to help create “picture-perfect” happy endings for shelter pets.

The deadline for submitting photos and voting is 11 p.m. Aug. 15, 2018.
