Proximity to the nation’s capital during an election year has inspired the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) to present “Elect-a-Pet 2016,” a political spin on our already spirited annual photo competition.
Pet candidates belonging to Canine, Feline, and Small Animals parties will engage in a political race to secure their name on their party’s ballot, each vying for the coveted office of Alexandria’s 2017 Animal of the Year.
At the conclusion of the election, the AWLA will publish a colorful, full-sized calendar celebrating all of the candidates put forward in the election;
The winning Pet Elect will be featured on the front cover of the calendar;
Running Mates and Members of the Cabinet will also be awarded.
Submissions and voting begin August 15, 2016.
