As a reminder, we encourage everyone to keep this community contest lighthearted and fun.This isn’t a presidential race, so please keep negativity and mud slinging out of this local contest. It’s designed to celebrate the area’s pets by showcasing their cute faces to the pubic, not incite local unrest. Remember, all the animal contestants are ultimately winners because they have homes with loving owners. Considering that so many domesticated animals end up in shelters—or worse, living on the streets, neglected, becoming victims of cruelty, or dead—the simple fact is that any pet lucky enough to have a caring home comes out ahead, regardless of winning a cute pet contest or not.
