This is very very dear to my heart and it’s one of the animal charities I support and sponsor, so I hope all doggie lovers will take the time to read this and even better take part.
Blue Cross Big Neutering Campaign - It’s time to pap your pooch!
Do you believe we are still a nation of animal lovers? Does your dog come from a happy home and have a healthy life?
If so, then it’s time to pap your pooch! Share a photo of your dog and you could be in with a chance of winning a professional photoshoot for your dog or you both together.
Leading pet charity, Blue Cross, have launched this competition for dog lovers to share photos of their dogs and show that we are still a nation of animal lovers as the number of pets being dumped and abandoned reaches a record high. In response to the epidemic levels of ‘disposable’ puppies, kittens and pregnant pets Blue Cross have launched the Big Neutering Campaign. The campaign aims to stamp our irresponsible breeding and raise awareness among millions of animal lovers of the huge benefits of neutering their pets. Preventing unwanted litters can save pets from a life that’s often short, dangerous and full of misery.
Show your support and share your love of animals with our dog photography competition. To take part all you need to do is follow these simple steps:
1) Take a photo of your pooch
3) Join the group
4) Click on ‘Add Photo’
5) Upload your photo onto Flickr
6) Include a comment with your dog’s name, breed and age
What could be easier?
You can also check out everyone else’s photos on Flickr and show your support of the campaign by tweeting with the hashtag #disposablepets.
Your picture will be judged by Dogs Today Editor Beverley Cuddy and the winner will be judged based on the best photograph of a dog that captures the sentiment ‘healthy life and a happy home’. The winning picture will then appear on Blue Cross’s website and in Blue Cross’s publication Blue Print. The four runners up will also receive £20 worth of goodies from the Blue Cross Shop!
Here’s the small print: the competition opens on Friday 19th October and all pictures must be submitted before midnight on Friday 16th November. The judge’s decision is final and your prize cannot be exchanged. There’s a full list of terms and conditions here http://www.bluecross.org.uk/81705/competitions-terms-and-conditions.html.
We’re really excited to see your pictures so get snapping and get sharing! And thank you for supporting the Blue Cross Big Neutering Campaign. You can also visit www.bluecross.org.uk/neuter to find out more about the campaign or make a donation.
