The WHS “My Furry Valentine” Photo Contest is an online photo contest to celebrate companion animals and the unconditional love they bring to our lives. Proceeds from the contest benefit the daily operations at the Whatcom Humane Society and support the domestic, wild and farm animals in our shelters.

It’s easy to participate. Enter your favorite photos, then encourage your family, friends, co-workers and social media followers to vote for your pet’s picture. You can enter as many photos and in as many categories as you like. The more entries, the more money raised to help animals in need.

Voting begins immediately!

$10 to enter for each photo and voting is $1 per vote (5 vote min).

Winners in each category will be based on the number of online votes they receive between February 1 and February 28.

Prizes will be awarded to 1st & 2nd place in each category. Winners will be announced by March 5.
