KC Pet Photo Contest + Holiday Yappy Hour

Thank you to all of our residents who submitted a photo of their pet(s) 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 KC 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, they ranked the top 10 well-deserving winners who were awarded amazing prizes from our generous local sponsors: Bar K Dog Park, Tail Waggin’ Pet Stop, Beer Paws, and Doggie Style Bowtique.

We announced these winners and awarded prizes at our Holiday Pet Yappy Hour hosted at The Newbern shortly after the contest. We had Santa posing for photos with pets and people, professional photos taken by Jessica Dervin Photography, a hot chocolate and cookie bar, and our local vendors set up with treats and pet goods for sale. It was quite the party, thanks to all who attended!

See below for the winning pet photos and snapshots of our event. Be sure to congratulate our winners if you see them in the neighborhood this winter!
