Fur-tography Contest Comes Full Circle with Prize-Winning Pet Adoption

A story that started with a family losing their dog ended with a furry adoption thanks to the Photoshop Elements Fur-tography contest.

Last Tuesday, Kevin N., grand prize winner of the Photoshop Elements Fur-tography contest, visited North Country Animal League in Morrisville, Vermont. As part of his grand prize package, Kevin selected North Country to receive $4,000 USD worth of pet food to feed the fur-tastic dogs and cats that currently reside in the shelter while waiting to find their forever homes. With the help of the delivery folks at Pet Food Warehouse, North Country received the first of several food deliveries.

North Country Animal League is a non-profit animal shelter with a passion for helping animals through adoptions, education and outreach and the sheltering of homeless animals. Currently, North Country is home to dozens of adoptable animals, including 15 dogs and 24 cats. They send about 700 animals per year to loving homes. The team at North Country was thrilled to be selected by Kevin as the recipient of the grand prize donation.

Kevin himself had a wonderful time visiting the shelter and even came home with a new family member! Kevin shared his experience from that day with our Photoshop Elements team:

The pet food and I made it to NCAL, and many pictures were taken with the staff, kittens and puppies. I was given a tour of the facility and was shown the cutest little puppy ever. She looks like a Lab-Pit Bull mix. She’s about eight weeks old and was found just last week and brought to NCAL. My wife and I went down to visit her this last weekend and she hasn’t gotten any less cute. We’ve been waiting for another dog to come along since losing our beloved Franki, whose picture I won the contest with.

Now, it’s official! We are the proud new parents of the cutest little fuzzball on the planet. She was just spayed yesterday but is full of beans and has already terrorized our two cats, and visited the neighbors in the half hour she’s been home. She has worked herself into a nap and is snoozing at my feet. 

We started this year off with the agonizing loss of our beloved Franki. Winning the Fur-tography contest with his picture brought us full circle to the adoption of this fuzzy little ball of joy!
