Enter your furred friends in Pet Parade contest

Enter your furred friends in Pet Parade contest
Gretchen Brummer’s Iota snagged celebrity status last year, winning the La Vernia News’ Pet Parade photo contest. Does your pet have star quality? Enter your furred, finned, or feathered friend in our photo contest for a chance to win bragging rights and great prizes. See entry form on page 8B and enter today!

Maybe your cat’s antics are too cute for words, or your pampered pooch is the pick of the pack. Do you have a llama that wears pajamas, or a cockatoo that’s cock of the walk?

Enter your pet’s pic in the third annual La Vernia News Pet Parade photo contest and show everyone just what a cutie pie he or she is! The pet with the most votes ...$1 per vote will be declared the winner, with prizes for first, second, and third place awarded. Proceeds from the voting will benefit South Texas Angel Paws Rescue, an all-volunteer organization with a “é mission to rescue dogs from high kill shelters, abandonment, and other unique situations,” according to its website Rescued animals are adopted into loving, caring homes.

The Wilson County Spay/Neuter Group has benefited from the funds in the past. This nonprofit offers spay/neuter services for pets of families with limited means in the area. The county is full of animal lovers, and this is borne out by the number of groups established to help the furry, feathered, or finned members of our communities. Such groups include Osborne Stables Equine Rescue, Cat Rescue of Floresville, Las Lomas K9 Rescue, and the Retired Rabbit Sanctuary in China Grove, to name a few.

Your furred, finned, or feathered friend’s photo should be submitted by 5 p.m. Monday, May 12. All pet photos will be published in the May 15 issue of the La Vernia News.

Voting will begin during the La Vernia Bluebonnet Fest May 17 in the La Vernia City Park, and will continue in the newspaper’s office at 112 E. Chihuahua St.

Put your money with the pet that wins your heart by casting a $1 vote for your favorite. There is no limit to the number of votes you can cast. Voting will end Wednesday, June 11.

The winners will be announced during the La Vernia News open house and Greater La Vernia Chamber of Commerce mixer that evening in our Chihuahua Street office. You won’t want to miss this evening of food, fun, and festivities! We’ll also announce the winner of the La Vernia News iPad Mini subscription promotion. Find out how to enter on page 2A.

And that’s not all! The first-place winner’s star status will be celebrated with an article in the La Vernia News. Second- and third-place pets will win prizes and earn some bragging rights, too.

There is no charge to enter the Pet Parade. An entry form appears in this issue of the La Vernia News. Simply send your pet’s photo to Pet Parade, La Vernia News, 112 E. Chihuahua St., La Vernia, TX 78121, or email, with Pet Parade in the subject line. In your email, include your name, daytime phone number and mailing address, and your pet’s name.

Remember, the deadline to enter is Monday, May 12, by 5 p.m. All photos submitted become the property of the La Vernia News.
