Bet you’ve got one — or maybe two — of the cutest pets anyone has ever seen. The question is, will you enter that adorable dog, cat, cow, ferret or rabbit in The Sampson Independent’s Cutest Pet Contest, which gets under way today on our website at www.clintonnc.com?
The contest kicked off this morning and continues through 11:59 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28. Voting begins on Sunday, Feb. 16 and winners will be announced the week of March 3.
It’s a great chance to show off those furry friends. What’s more, entering is a breeze; it’s free, it’s fun and it’ll give your pets more than their 60 seconds of fame, with their cute, little faces being viewed by thousands upon thousands of people who visit our website every day.
The contest allows website visitors and all our wonderful readers to show off their pets and maybe, just maybe, earn them the title of our cutest pet.
There’s even prizes — $100 to the overall winner and $50 for for the four top runner-ups — and, what’s just as good, entering is completely free.
All you have to do is visit our website — www.clintonnc.com — click on the Cutest Pet Contest logo on our home page and follow the instructions.
So get out your camera and snap away, then upload those photos to our website, view all the competition and watch for our Facebook updates on how the contest is going. What’s more, use your social media outlets, like Facebook and Twitter, to draw interest – and eventually votes – to your pet.
Once more as a reminder, voting begins Feb. 16 and runs until Friday, Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m., with the winners being announced on our website, through our Facebook page and in our print edition the week of March 3.
