Many thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s PAWS Picture Your Pet photo contest . The entry fees and People's Choice donations will benefit our low income veterinary assistance fund, helping families keep their pets during tough financial times.

Our contest judges had a difficult task. In addition to the category winners pictured here, every one of the pictures submitted expressed the strong bond of companionship that PAWS loves to celebrate. It's hard to know whether our pets are just that much more photogenic when the camera is out, or whether they are just appreciating all the extra attention. In any case, the magical spark of companionship shone through brightly, and we appreciate everyone sharing your photos!
