Announcing the 2021 Central Oregon Pet Palooza!

Submit your pet photos to the 2021 Pet Palooza by 3/7


Is your pet the cutest? Is your pandemic kitten the best idea you ever had? Is your goofy looking pup ready for their close-up?

Now is the time to show the entire world, or at least your fellow pet loving Central Oregonians that your pet is the best. From now until March 5, submit your photo of your pet to be considered in one of four categories.

With all the pandemic pets brought home this year, we are featuring a special category just for them. For furry (or not so furry) friends that were thrilled when the pandemic kept you home — a "worst at social distancing" category arrives this year.

The 2021 Pet Palooza will include four categories for pets to be considered in.
  • Best Costume
  • Cutest Pandemic Pet
  • Best Face for Radio
  • Worst at Social Distancing
Winners will receive a photo shoot, a feature in the upcoming pets issue and a portrait of their winning pet printed by High Desert Frameworks. Pet parents will be able to use their online digital printing platform, to choose and order their best shot.

So grab your camera or search through your sea of saved photos and send them our way!

  1. Your name

  3. Your pet's favorite activity
  4. The category you want your pet to be considered for
  5. And of course your best pet photo
Submit your entires to with the subject "2021 Pet Palooza: Insert Pet's Name"
