Cockatoos, rats, and cats, oh my! Pets of all stripes are invited to enter Valley Humane Society’s 2014 online pet photo contest, Is Spot Hot...or Not? beginning Thursday, July 10, 2014.

A way for pet lovers to show off their beloved companions, the contest opens the door to both the decidedly dapper and the happily homely, illustrating that every pet is loveable and worthy of being loved. 

Contest winners will be determined by public voting. Votes cost $1 each with a minimum donation of $5, or five votes (votes can be split among multiple entries).

Entrants are encouraged to share their pet’s picture through email, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites to enlist the support of friends and family and help their pet win. 

Every dollar funds Valley Humane Society programs, including the rescue and rehabilitation of cats and dogs awaiting the love and security of their own forever home. 

The contest runs from 10:00 am on Thursday, July 10, 2014 through 10:00 pm on Thursday, July 31, 2014 with the deadline for entries on Thursday, July 24, 2014 at 10 pm. Complete rules are available through valleyhumane.org. 

Prize packages will be given to the first, second, and third place winners as determined by public voting.

Among the prizes are a Pet Food Express “My Mutt” poster, a private wine tasting at Concannon Vineyard for eight, a personal shopper experience for four at Nordstrom, gift cards, and public recognition of the winners on the Pleasanton Patch and in the Pleasanton Weekly.

Whether your pet is camera-ready or has a face only a pet parent could love, they are undoubtedly adored. Every vote is a vote for compassion and companionship. Join VHS for this fun photo contest by entering your own companion today or voting for your favorite at valleyhumane.org!

When I read the title, and saw the dog in the car, at first I thought it was a contest for pictures to discourage leaving pets in a hot car.

Ha, Becky! I can see what you mean. Good thing he is in a convertible!
