Any loving pet owner can tell you that their pet is, indeed, the cutest pet. Now there’s a chance to back that claim up with statistics and get your babies the recognition they deserve, all while supporting the Lawrence Humane Society.

Lawrence Humane has partnered with Lawrence Beer Co. to present the Cutest Crowler Contest. This is a new version of the Animal Shelter Spring Pet Photo Contest.


For a $5 entry fee, pet owners can enter the cutest photo of their cat and/or dog into the contest. Family members, friends and Floofs fans — and the owners themselves — can vote for the cutest pets for a $1 donation per vote.

“The dog and cat with the most votes in their category at the end of the contest will be featured together on the Lawrence Beer Co. crowlers this summer!” according to the contest page. “…Not only will your dog or cat be featured on the LBC Crowlers, but your pet will also have their photo artistically, digitally adapted for the LBC Crowler design by a local Lawrence artist!”

Crowlers, the webpage explains, are 32-ounce aluminum cans filled to order from LBC faucets, “like a regular growler. A seamer seals them with a lid just like a normal beer can.

Parents of the two grand prize winners will receive an 8 x 10 inch framed print of their pet in the crowler art style, two crowlers filled with the beer of their choice, two entries into the Lawrence Humane’s Paw Valley Challenge event to May, a t-shirt, a $25 gift card for the Lawrence Beer Co. and, of course, bragging rights for having the cutest animal in Douglas County.

The finalists – the cat and dog with the second highest number of votes – will receive two free registrations for the Paw Valley event and a Lawrence Humane t-shirt.

The contest has already started and voting closes at 11:59 p.m. on April 15. At the time of publication, the contest was already starting to get ruff — there were 56 entries, 35 dogs and 21 cats.

Your pet does not need to be adopted by the Lawrence Humane Society to participate.
