A Picture is Worth a Thousand Purrs

Following up on yesterday's photos of our legislative award winners, I want to share with you another set of winning photos. The HSUS's Spay Day USA Pet Photo Contest has come to a close, and the winning shots are touching and outstanding. (The four Markarian kitties—Georgia, Mario, Misty, and Oliver—were in the running, but were apparently disqualified due to bad behavior.)

More than 30,000 people submitted photos of their pets, celebrating the human-animal bond and writing about how their companion animals have impacted their lives.  The stories are inspiring, and the images even more so.  From the grand prize winner—Gomer (below), a rescued cat in Walnut Creek, Calif.—to the dogs, cats, rabbits, and even a baby rat, every picture reminds us of the joy and happiness that animals bring to our lives.

You can see the grand prize winner, along with the ten finalists and 25 honorable mentions, by clicking here. If you entered your pet's photo or voted for your favorite candidate, whether you're a "Demo-Cat" or "Re-Pup-lican," thank you for participating in the "Pet-toral College."
