Enormous thanks to all our contestants, their associates

In 2021 we had a three-way tie for 1st place: Kooper, Nala and the Toby/Lucy pair! Congratulations! And every other pet is a prizewinner in our eyes too!!!

To enter your pet, click here to pay the $15 registration fee. Once you’ve entered, please email a photo to us (preferably 2MB or less) with your pet’s name. We will post it in the Facebook photo album so the public can view them all and vote on their favorite. Don’t forget to share your pet’s photo on Facebook or via email to get more votes! (Pets will be added to Facebook within one business day.)

To view the pets, click here. To vote for your favorite, click the link under their photo to go to the 19 Days Pet Contest voting page. A vote is $1 and in the comments section, please indicate the name of the pet you are voting for. You can also vote for your favorite in person at Dan & Whit’s.

*Please note that the likes on Facebook do not indicate the leading pet. Votes will be tallied daily and posted here once per day on weekdays. New pet entries will have a slight lag between appearing on Facebook and in store.
