This past holiday season was joyful and fun while we hosting the first ever Ugly Holiday Sweater Pet Photo Contest. All 14 dogs, mini horses and mini pigs looked fabulous in their Christmas sweaters as they competed for your votes. The competition heated up at the end when the two mini pigs took the rains.This contest didn’t deliver on the donation goal we had set but it did give lots of smiles, healthy competition and a nice distraction to the harsh reality of living during a pandemic. Click here to meet all of the contestants.
