The Southampton Animal Shelter’s Pet Pix Photo Contest

Put your pet in the spotlight with The Southampton Animal Shelter’s Pet Pix Photo Contests. The themes include The Real Housecats of the Hamptons and Hamptons Dog Days Of Summer, each to later be turned into a coffee table book.

Here are the rules & eligibility from the Southampton Animal Shelter:

  • Pet parents must live 3 or more months in the Town of East Hampton, Town of Shelter Island, or Town of Southampton
  • Pet needs to be adopted from a shelter, rescued, or stray/feral (no pets obtained from a breeder or pet store can be entered)

Photo Formatting:

  • Photos must be high enough quality for printing purposes
  • If your photo is to be included in the photo book but is not high enough quality for printing purposes, we reserve the right to ask you to provide a replacement photo of the entered dog. If a quality replacement photo cannot be provided, we reserve the right to exclude the dog from the photo book.
