Now's the time to make your favorite pet a star. The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) is holding its first online pet photo contest, "Furry Friends Photo Contest". The contest runs from January 25 until March 8 and the winning photo will be on the cover of the RCHS 2011 wall calendar.
The second place winner will be the featured photograph for a month in the calendar and third and fourth place winners will share a month in the calendar. Each photo entry is $10 and each vote is $1.
Visit the RCHS website at www.rchsvt.org to learn more, enter your photo or vote for your favorite animal. All funds raised from the photo contest will help RCHS care for the 1,400 animals that come through its doors each year. If you have any questions please contact the RCHS business office at 483-9171.
7 year old. Neutered Male. Chihuahua mix.
I have attitude to spare. I am a very sweet little guy who hides behind a tough guy persona to maintain my cool. I don't like things that take me by surprise and I need to make your acquaintance at my own speed.
14 month old. Spayed Female. German Shepherd mix.
I am a beautiful and smart young dog who is really hoping for someone to see beyond my striking good looks and give me a permanent home and the help I need to learn to live in it. I need lots of exercise, things to do and obedience training so that I have a positive outlet for my brain.
5 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Tortoiseshell.
My owner was moving and could not take me and my sister Tigger with them. We would fit nicely into any home because we have lived with dogs, cats and children of all ages. I can be affectionate but I also don't mind spending time just snuggled in a nice warm bed if you are busy.

I am a cat on a mission: Party. I love to play and explore and test my limits. If you are looking for some laughs and someone to liven up the party, I am the kitty for you. What a silly guy I am.
