am, the contest also seeks to encourage public engagement around animal welfare—and, “through the wonders of photography and film, we want to share the hilarious expressions, antics, and naughty capers that your joyous pets get up to and share the love and laughter with the world.”

“Pets keep us fit, sane and grounded. They listen to us when no one else does; they know how to cheer us up and will do anything for us (unless we’re talking about cats, but they have special superpowers of their own that we dare not talk about).”
