PATRIOTIC RESCUE PETS PHOTO CONTEST
Enter June 1 – 30, 2022
$1,000 in Prizes to be Awarded

Hosted & Sponsored by The Burton Fletcher Foundation for Animals, Inc.

Picture your rescue pet as the winner of the national Patriotic Rescue Pets Photo Contest! Taking photographs of our pets is as American as gathering with family and friends to enjoy an old-fashioned cook-out or watching a festive Fourth of July parade and fireworks.

We invite pet parents to submit one or two photos of their rescue pets that show their most flag-waving, patriotic red, white & blue. Join us to celebrate America’s 246th birthday this July 4th as we give thanks for our country, our freedoms and recognize our patriotic rescue pets!

Contest entries are accepted Wednesday, June 1, 2022, until noon, 12:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, June 30, 2022. No late entries will be accepted.

No purchase is necessary to enter or win.

Rescue pets eligible for entry into this patriotic photo contest are animals that have been adopted from an animal shelter, animal rescue organization or other rescue situations: homeless, abandoned or rescued from the streets. Fosters are acceptable too! Any kind of rescue animal may be entered, and more than one animal can be shown in the photo. One or more people can also be included in the photo with the animal(s). Each animal and each person in a photo must be identified by full name on the entry.
