Winners of Beautiful Pet Photo Contest announced Winners of the Beautiful Pet Photo Contest sponsored by the Theta Omega Chapter of ESA International are: first place, Otto and Percy � pugs; second place, Bailey and Jimmi � boxers; and third place, Frankie � toy poodle. The contest benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The pugs are Otto, a 7-month old puppy, and Percy a 1-year-old owned by Sue Ann Stutheit. The boxers are Bailey, a 5-year-old, and Jimmi, a 4-year-old owned by Clint and Donna Tucker. Both Otto and Jimmi are dogs that have been "rescued" from a bad home life or situation. Frankie, aka Bean, is a two-year-old toy poodle owned by Brandi Urwiler.
Otto and Percy will receive a $25 gift certificate to the store of their choice and a St. Jude sweatshirt for Stutheit. Bailey and Jimmi will receive a St. Jude sweatshirt and apron for the Tuckers. Frankie will receive a St. Jude sweatshirt for Urwiler. All the pets (and their owners) that were entered in the contest will receive certificates of appreciation.
Thanks to the generosity of the friends and family of the pets and the people of the Vermillion community who donated a penny for a vote for their favorite pet photo, a total of $344 was raised to benefit the children of St. Jude's Research Hospital.
