Picture Perfect Pet Contest to Raise Funds for Spaying Pets

The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury.

LAKE CHARLES, LA – Calcasieu Parish Animal Services and the Prien Lake Mall are working together to help get animals spay/neutered in an effort to reduce unwanted animals. Pet owners can compete in two contests: "Dress Your Pet," which calls for pets to be in costume and "Picture Perfect Pet," which is for pets not dressed in a costume.

To register, the pet owner must fill out a registration sheet and mail it in along with a photo of their pet and $5. Registration forms and envelopes will be at the information booth at the Prien Lake Mall. Pet owners can also hand deliver their entries directly to Calcasieu Parish Animal Services. Photos should be no larger than 4 x 6 inches. Registration began Monday, January 25th.

Voting runs from Thursday, February 18th through Saturday, February 27th from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm at the Sears/Dillard Court. Each vote cast requires a donation and anyone can vote for a pet as many times as they like. Donations can be as small or as large as the voter wishes to give and can be donated in voter envelopes at the mall or directly to Animal Services. Winners will be notified by telephone and announced on KPLC 7-News Sunrise, Monday, March 1st.

Calcasieu Animal Services will also have their animal adoption bus at the mall on Saturday, February 27th to answer questions about the contest as well as adopting pets.

All of these events are in recognition of Spay Day 2010 which is on February 23rd.
