Dog Adoption Photo Winners Named | Local News

VALDOSTA – Burton Fletcher, President and Director of the Burton Fletcher Foundation for Animals, announced the winners of the 2021 National Shelter/Animal Welfare Adoption Dog “Happy Holidays!” Photo contest.

“We believe our first annual National Show helps educate the public that there are many beautiful dogs available for adoption in our communities through our animal shelters and animal welfare organizations” , Fletcher said. “We encourage people to adopt rather than shop and buy.”

Photos of the first, second and third place winners, as well as other competitors, can be viewed on the foundation’s website.

“The contest rules were simple: each photo must be original for the contest and include an adopted or rescued dog,” he said. “Photos are judged 40% on creativity, 30% on theme – “Happy Holidays!” 30% on image quality.”
