Everyone thinks their pet is the prettiest, well here’s a way to show of you furry, feathered, or scaled best friend and possibly win a prize. “This photo contest is for all pets,” said Gee, “We have a booth that is up at Old Drum Coffee House and Bakery. There is a board down there that we post the pictures on and then the public can come by and vote on their favorite. The way they vote is through pennies, it’s a penny a piece but they can vote as many times as they would like.”
This contest also helps to support a good cause for or pets and pet owners as well. “We are trying to raise money with the dog park committee, here in Warrensburg, to build a dog park,” Gee said, “In the past it had been just a dog photo contest, but we’ve opened it up, so cat lovers, if you have a lizard, a bird, you’re more then welcome to enter those pets as well.”
