NO ENTRY FEE
Deadline September 15, 2010. The Angel Animals Network 2010 True Story Contest is now accepting submissions of real-life stories that depict the healing bond between children and a wide spectrum of animals -- dogs, cats, horses, birds, rabbits, gerbils, ferrets, rabbits, any family pet or animal in nature. The story should show an animal helping children, parents, or families to deal with difficult situations and circumstances.
Each individual is limited to submit three separate entries. Entry form required. One grand prize of $250 will be awarded to the first-place winning contestant. A second place prize of $25 will be awarded to 5 contestants. There will be 5 or more entries chosen as Honorable Mentions. There are no citizen status or resident country restrictions for contestants. Story submissions must be no more than 2,000 words in English.
NOTE: These folks always do a good job. Very legitimate contest without an entry fee.
DOUBLE NOTE: That's my mini-dachshund Dixie. She's blind from glaucoma and this picture is from Edisto Beach, where we took her so she could trot around without bumping into anything. She actually started barking at the wind and waves! She's 14 years old this month.
