Animal shelter calendar contest begins

Winners of last year's pet photo contest were Jesse and Nikko of Woodbury. They were visiting Nala and Lika in Nevis when this photo was taken at Rik and Lyn Meyers' residence.

The Headwaters Animal Shelter pet photo contest is underway. This is the shelter's 6th annual photo contest. It runs throughout the summer, with the public voting for their favorite pictures at community events and on the shelter's website. All photos will be featured in the shelter's 2013 pet calendar. The first place winner appears on the cover. Twelve other winners each get their own calendar page.

The entry fee is $5 per photo. Photos may be digital files or film prints. Each vote costs 25 cents, but there's no limit to how many votes you may cast. The deadline for entries is June 30, and contest voting ends at midnight Aug. 31.

Entry forms are available at the Headwaters Animal Shelter, 901 Western Avenue in Park Rapids, or online at www.HeadwatersAnimalShel For more information, contact Rik or Lyn Meyers at 652-3430.
