We want to share the love of the most affectionate day of the year. That’s why we want you to enter our True Love Valentine’s Day Photo Contest – we’re giving away $600 worth of prizes (because that’s how much we love you)!

From Monday, January 26 to Friday, February 13, 2015, you have the chance to win one of our FOUR Valentine’s Day Prizes. Because this special day is celebrating love, we want to see your pet in photos that show his love, or in a picture inspired by Valentine’s Day.

Every pet shows his love differently. He can be licking or snuggling with a person or an animal, or resting his head on a lap. You could dress him up in something red, or give him a big heart to hold – be as creative as you want; it just needs to be full of love!

You have 12 days (Jan. 26 to Feb. 6) to send your pics to On February 7, we’ll post them in our True Love Contest Facebook album. From Feb. 7 to Feb. 13, you can vote by “Liking” your favorite picture in the album. The four photos with the most “Likes” will win. To get the most likes, you can share the photo with your Facebook friends and ask them to Like your photo. REMEMBER – they have to like your photo on PETGUIDE’S FACEBOOK PAGE, not your own personal page.

We have four fabulous prizes to give away. The three runners-up will receive a prize pack filled with lots of goodies for their furry Valentine. The picture with the most votes walks away with a PetChatz, which lets you keep tabs on your dog or cat from wherever you are.
