Annual OHS Photo Contest

OHS Choice Winner: Kai by Callie Attanasio

Thanks to everyone who entered the 2017 OHS Fuzzy, Furry, and Feathered Friends Photo Contest. The contest has ended and nearly $15,000 was raised for shelter animals!

This year’s contest featured a People’s Choice voting system—the winners were based on who gets the most votes from the public. OHS staff have reviewed entries to select the “OHS Choice” winner based on photographic excellence and, of course, love of animals! Thank you again to all entrants and voters—all proceeds from this contest benefit the shelter pets, so whether or not your photo received top honors, you still win for doing good.
