2011 Congressional Pet Photo Contest


Do you have the most distinguished dog? The most captivating cat? How about the handsomest horse? Then The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) invites you to take part in our 2011 Congressional Pet Photo Contest! The contest is a bi-pawtisan event to celebrate Washington’s furriest movers and shakers.

Eligible pets include dogs, cats, and horses who are the beloved companions of either Members of Congress or Congressional staff. Photo entries will be accepted from May 2 through May 20, 2011, and winners will be selected by a panel of independent judges.
