"Why I Love My Pet" Contest

February is the month of love and we would love to hear why you love your pet. Better yet, show us!

During February we invite you to submit an original drawing or painting of why you love your pet and we will share it on our Facebook page. At the end of the month our staff will narrow down to the top 3 images in each category and then you, our Facebook family will vote online to choose your favorite.

Everyone who enters will receive an AHNA tote bag! You will receive a certificate of participation for your artwork. Bring the certificate to the hospital and you will be given your free AHNA tote! You must pick up your tote at AHNA.

Our top entries will receive a special gift. 

The winner in each category will be featured online and in our March Newsletter.
