It’s that time again - time for Spot and Tabby to take center stage in Logan County.
The News-Democrat & Leader’s annual “Cutest Pet Contest” has kicked off, but it’s not just cats and dogs that are being sought.
“Cats and dogs are great, but I’m betting there are some other pretty cute pets out there - like pot-bellied pigs, horses, ducks, ferrets, chinchillas, snakes and others,” said Lola Nash, general manager of the News-Democrat & Leader. “We want to see photos of everyone’s pet, and then see who wins.”
Folks with pets can now submit their photos online. Simply click on the contest logo on the News-Deomcrat & Leader website (www.newsdemocratleader.com) and follow the directions. Entries will be accepted through Saturday, Sept. 29.
But before that, starting Monday, Sept. 17, the entries will go before the voters. And voting will continue through Sunday, Sept. 30.
Prizes of $100 will be awarded to three Logan County winners, thanks to the generosity of local businesses PSK, Southern States and Ventra Plastics.
“We can’t thank our sponsors enough, because, without them, we would have no contest,” Nash said. “And we would certainly urge everyone to support those businesses every chance they get.”
So get your photos ready for downloading - we want to see those award-winning pets!
