Animal shelter holding feline photo contest

Citizen Staff Writer

If your kitty is sitting pretty you may want to enter your fine feline in the 2009 Feline Photo Contest.

Held by HOPE Animal Shelter, the contest has two categories: Funniest Feline or Fairest Feline Beauty, according to a news release from the shelter.

Folks can enter as many photos as they wish, with a $10 entry fee per photo. The deadline has been extended to April 30, with winners announced by May 11.

Winners in each category will receive an oil portrait of their cat, with runners-up eligible for a $100 gift certificate to the Diana Madaras Gallery or a photo of their cat taken by a professional photographer.

Entries can be mailed to HOPE Animal Shelter, 2011 E. 12th St., Tucson, AZ 85719. Photos should be no larger than 5-by-7 inches and should be marked “photo – do not bend.”

Entries should include the entrant’s name, address and phone number, the cat’s name and why the cat is special.

All proceeds benefit HOPE, Tucson’s only no-kill dog and cat shelter.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
