County residents invited to enter their pets in photo contest
Contest aims to showcase adoption success stories
– When the new County of San Luis Obispo Animal Shelter opens this summer, the county wants to fill it with pictures of success stories: animals who have found happy homes in the community. They also want to showcase the Central Coast. The county is inviting locals to take a picture of their pet in front of a recognizable icon or background in the county and submit their best shots here (Gmail account required to upload photos).
The public shelter will be dedicated to matching the community’s homeless and unwanted pets with new families, so photos of pets adopted from a shelter or humane society are preferred. The higher quality of image, the better (Up to 10 MB). You may submit as many as five images, per pet. The deadline for entry is May 15.
