GOOD + Purina ONEÂ® are using the power of photography to change perceptions around shelter pets and to celebrate how pets–of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds–have inspired and changed lives across the globe, making the world a better place.
The Picturing Pets challenge, launching Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 12 p.m. PDT, calls all pet owners to celebrate pets by submitting a photo of your dog or cat along with a short description that shows how they make the world a better place. This is a step toward shifting negative perceptions about pets by picturing them in a new, positive light.
The pet owner of the winning photo will receive:
- A feature on good.is with the winning photo and story
- A yearâ€™s supply of Purina ONEÂ® dog food
- A pet photoshoot and photography training session with award-winning photographer Nanette Martin at an animal shelter of her choosing. Through her nonprofit organization, Shelter Me Photography, Martin has dedicated herself to teaching photography techniques so that photos of shelter pets reveal their true beauty and personality, greatly increasing their chances of finding a home.
- $1,500 donation made on the winnerâ€™s behalf to one of the following recipient pet organizations of the winnerâ€™s choice: HALO Animal Rescue Uno por Uno, Animal Human Society Bound for Home, Cat Adoption Team Kitten Foster Program or Nebraska Humane Society Camp Kindness
