Loveland, Ohio – Who doesn’t love sharing a beautiful photo of their pet? 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 starting on August 1st we will be selecting and featuring “Loveland’s Pet of the Month,” in which that pet will then be featured in our publication, weekly newsletters, and our social media platforms for that entire month.

The featured pet will also receive a beautiful, glossy, high-quality 8X10 photo keepsake that will be mailed to the pet owner’s home. We love our pets as much you do Loveland so let’s pay tribute to them together every month!

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 set your little buddy apart from other pets! The window for receiving pet of the month candidates will run from the 1st to the 25th (deadline) of every month starting on August 1st. 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 first official Loveland Pet of the Month will be featured on September 1st.

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

As a reminder, you may start sending in pet photos and bios beginning on August 1st. The deadline once again will be on the 25th of every month. The first pet selected will be featured on September 1st.

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