The second Grand Photo Prize winner for the first Spring Romp Photo Contest, a part of The Animal Rescue Site $300,000 Shelter+ Challenge of 2011 - with Petfinder.com, was announced today. The winning photo was entitled "Kitty Smooches," and submitted by Stacy Chambliss. A $2,000 grant will be awarded to Jackson County Humane Society of Newport, AR, Stacy's favorite rescue organization and a participating member of Petfinder.com eligible for the Shelter+ Challenge.
All 10 of the photo contest's finalists have received a $25 reward certificate to The Animal Rescue Site store. There is just one more Spring Romp Photo Contest before the end of this Shelter+ Challenge voting round! Submissions for the last Spring Romp Photo Contest begin on Thursday, May 26th.
Our judges found that selecting just 10 finalists out of the hundreds of fabulous photos submitted to the second round of the contest was a daunting task, and are relieved that it was up to voters to pick the winner. A peek at the splendid spring photos below shows that the voters had a tough job too - these animals are all absolutely adorable!
