“My Furry Valentine” Photo Contest

1

Valentines Day is right around the corner. True love in our world involves our beloved pets. We go out and purchase a new Valentine toy and maybe prepare a special treat. All to let them know it is their special day. Here is a chance for you to write your love story and tell the world just how much you love your companion.

ASPCA is thrilled to announce the launch of the 2011 “My Furry Valentine” Photo Contest in honor of all of your puppy (kitty, fish, bird) loves.
