Pet pics praised

Thank you to the North Island Gazette and all the people who entered the Pet Photo Contest.

Dear editor,

Thank you to the North Island Gazette and all the people who entered the Pet Photo Contest; we were thrilled to see so many great pet owners sharing their cute photos of the animals they love.

We were very touched when we were notified that the money collected from the entry fee was distributed back into our communities via the Animal Shelters and Cat’s Meow societies. We appreciate being acknowledged by the Gazette and by the businesses that showed their support through their ads and messages.

We will put this money to good use in our North Island communities. Despite our limited resources, our society strives to help control the pet population through financial support, awareness, and education for pet owners. The best way to help is to be a responsible pet owner, especially by getting your pet spayed or neutered at six months of age and keeping and loving your pet for its lifetime.

Congratulations to the winners, all of the entrants, and each of the pets that have loving, responsible owners. They are the biggest winners of all. >^..^<

Muffy Jones and Jennifer Lok,

Port Hardy and Port McNeill

Cat’s Meow Society
