Pet portrait contest
My favorite charity, the Wildcat Sanctuary, has just announced a contest; the winner will receive his or her very own portrait, plus a tour of the Wildcat Sanctuary for two of his or her humans. As you know if you've been reading my blog, the Wildcat Sanctuary gives homes to our wild cousins, many of whom have been abused after being kept as pets. The tour is the big lure here, since the sanctuary is not normally open to the public. I hope they get a million entries, as the entry fee will help support the beautiful wildcats who live at the sanctuary.
enews: "Tell us why your pet is wild at heart and you could win a custom painted portrait of your favorite animal friend and other great prizes! To enter, send your $15 entry donation with a picture of your beloved pet and a story (150 words or less) about the wonderful and whimsical things that make your best friend wild at heart. Download the registration form,
Does your cat climb the drapes like it's a tree? Does your dog howl at the moon or dig up buried treasures in your back yard?
The top 5 stories will be posted on our website along with the photo of your wild-child. The winning story and photo will be displayed at our annual Jungle Boogie event in October.
Grand Prize: 16' x 20' canvas painting of your pet (animals only, no people) and a behind the scenes tour for two of TWS.
1st & 2nd Prize: Custom-designed jewelry from a local jewelry artist.
All proceeds will benefit the wild at heart residents of The Wildcat Sanctuary!
Deadline and entry instructions:
All entries must be received by August 1, 2007. The winner will be announced August 15th. Mail your photo and story (sorry, photos cannot be returned) to TWS, PO Box 314, Sandstone MN 55072 or email both to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Portrait will be done from the photo you submit.
