The third and final Grand Photo Prize winner for the 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 "Luigi waters the peppers!!" and was submitted by Michelle Minicozzi. A $2,000 grant will be awarded to the Humane Society of Rome Inc., of Rome, NY, Michelle's favorite rescue organization and a participating member of Petfinder.com eligible for the Shelter+ Challenge. All ten of the photo contest's finalists have received a $25 reward certificate to The Animal Rescue Site store.
Hundreds of wonderful photos of happy rescued pets were submitted to this final round of the Spring Romp Photo Contest. Judges were faced with the difficult task of selecting just ten as finalists from an amazing array of smiling dogs, cats, horses, birds, ferrets, and rabbits, all mugging for the camera. Fortunately for the judges, the voters were tasked with choosing the final Grand Photo Prize winner.
The last round of Spring Romp Finalists, shown below, make it clear that the voters had a tough job, too!
