The Valley Humane Society has launched its first photo contest to show the lovability and worth of pets.
The contest, called "Is Spot Hot…Or Not?" runs through 10 p.m. July 24.
"Besides showing the lovability and worth of all animals, the contest also will raise funds for rescued animals and, hopefully, raise awareness as well to help a few of them find homes where they, too, can be adored," said Melissa Adkins, the society's marketing and development manager.
Entry is free with winners determined by public voting. Votes are available for $1 each, with a minimum donation of $5. For more information and to participate in the voting, sign on to: http://valleyhumane.org/
