Thank you to all of our residents who submitted a photo of their pet this year! While this is one of our favorite annual contests to host, it is also the most difficult for our staff and judges as choosing “the best” pet is close to impossible- some look sassy, some look playful, and some look downright cuddly. We love them all.
To enter, residents uploaded a photo and caption of their pet. We sent out emails, hung posters, and posted social content encouraging people from the STL community to vote for their favorite pet. We took the top 10 entries with the highest amount of votes and sent them to our judge panel- a mix of executive Mac members, and community pet business owners. After much contemplation, we decided on 3 well-deserving winners who were awarded amazing prizes from our local sponsors: Wolfgang’s Pet Stop, Four Muddy Paws and Treats Unleashed.
Additionally- every resident that participated in the contest a free pet self-wash at their self-wash tub stations. The stations are perfect for both dogs and cats, and supply everything you need including all-natural shampoo and conditioner, ear wash, dryer, towels, brushes and combs, cologne and aprons (to keep you dry).
Check out the winners below, and be sure to congratulate them if you cross paths in the neighborhood this winter!
Also stop by our sponsor’s nearby locations the next time you need anything pet related- they are truly the best in the biz.
