Mission Im-PAW-sible

Animal Humane New Mexico's first-ever
Pet Photography Challenge

HOW TO PAW-TICIPATE:

Your mission if you choose to accept it… paw-ticipate in Mission Im-PAW-sible, our first-ever Pet Photography Challenge that you can compete in with your furry, feathered, fuzzy or scaly BFF! No registration required.

Simply check out our Mission Im-PAW-sible categories, grab a camera & your pet & get started! You have exactly one month to complete this challenge, beginning Aug. 15 with all submissions due on or before Sept. 15.

The top three Mission Im-PAW-sible submissions, as determined by the Animal Humane Team, will be uploaded to Animal Humane's Facebook page. Then, our fans get to vote with their dollars to determine the overall Mission Im-PAW-sible winner.

REQUIRED CATEGORIES: 1 – 3

1. It’s time to Dash (or Dawdle)!!
Show us the joy on your pet’s face when they get to go on a walk or explore outside of their usual enclosure.

2. Your pet deserves a tasty treat!
Make your BFF a sumptuous snack & show us their reaction. When making a delightful dish for your pet, be sure to utilize ingredients that are safe for their specific diet.

3. It’s called fashion… look it up!
Dress your pet to impress with their favorite sweater, hat, vest or article of clothing that helps them put their best paw forward.

NOW YOU PICK 2 (OR MORE): 4 – 15
