Loveland, Ohio – Who doesn’t love sharing a beautiful festive photo of their pet? It’s Christmas time and we want to see your pets in their best holiday attire!

If you are a Loveland resident and live close to the Loveland Bike Trail you know more than anyone that Loveland has a special place in its heart for pets. From dogs to cats to horses to exotic animals the Loveland community welcomes all animals with open arms! This is why here at Loveland Magazine we want to celebrate your pets!

At the beginning of every month, Loveland Magazine selects and features “Loveland’s Pet of the Month,” in which that pet is then featured in our publication, weekly newsletters, and our social media platforms for that entire month.

The featured pet will receive A Nothing Bundt Cakes Bundlet Tower, a Works Pizza gift card, and a beautiful, glossy, high-quality 8X10 photo keepsake that the pet owner will then be able to pick at Loveland Magazine headquarters! We love our pets as much you do Loveland so join us in paying tribute to them!

This is Dean, Cassie’s older household sibling to Nala.

To enter into Loveland’s Pet of the Month contest you must email me, Cassie Mattia, at [email protected] 2-5 of your favorite photos of your pet along with a short bio about your pet. Share with us and the community why your pet is so special to you along with any other unique facts that sets your little buddy apart from other pets! The window for receiving pet of the month candidates for the month of January will be extended due to the holidays! The contest will run from December 1st through January 3rd (deadline). When sending in your pet photos and bios please include your pet’s name, age, and breed as well as your contact info with a short description of each photo you provide us with. If you want to share where your pet’s favorite spots are in Loveland that would be great as well!

The Loveland Pet of the Month for January will be announced on January 5th!

Remember we DO NOT discriminate against any pets; all pets are welcome to enter into the contest!

As a reminder, you may send in pet photos and bios up until January 3rd. Again Loveland Magazine’s January Pet of the Month will be announced on January 5th!

We are so excited to share the love you have for your pets and the joy they bring you every day with the community!
