All of the entries we receive will be voted on by our site viewers. The pet with the most votes (i.e. money raised) at close of business Friday, March 26 will be declared our winner and will receive a photo shoot with professional photographer Ashley Brody, valued at $200. All pets/animal companions are welcome to enter: dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, ferrets, goats, etc.

Cost: $10.00 to upload your pet’s picture. Each vote costs a minimum of a $5.00. However, any amount can be put into your pet’s “kitty” (no pun intended). You may vote as many times as you like. After you place your vote, you will be directed to the payment page. Payments for votes are tax-deductible donations to Beth Emeth so we can continue to bring you great programs!

Pet owners, be creative with your photos! Simply upload a photo of your family pet any time between February 14 and March 16, and let your friends and families do the rest! Photos may also include human family members. Make sure you put your last name in the caption (i.e., Fluffy Simkin). Then spread the word and have your friends, family and coworkers place monetary votes for your pet. Share your entry on Facebook and other social media with friends and family and encourage them to vote, vote, vote! It’s all for the fun of it!

Join us (virtually) at Erev Shabbat services on Pet Shabbat, March 19 at 6:15 PM with your pet at your side to show them off and encourage last-minute voting! All pets present will also get a special blessing! The contest will end Friday, March 26 before Shabbat.
