From therapy dogs providing comfort or simply snuggling with the family dog to the purr of a cat at the end of a busy day, there are many reasons to be thankful for a pet!
Children 14 years old and younger are encouraged to write a brief essay (300 words max) about why they are thankful for a favorite dog or cat. Don’t have a family pet? Share a story about a special dog or cat they know.

Essays will be judged on creativity and details. Two winning essays–representing a dog and a cat–will be chosen.

The winning essays will be published in The Herald, co-sponsor of our essay contest, as well as on the Doylestown Veterinary Hospital & Holiday House Pet Resort websites.

Winners will receive a special gift basket for their dog or cat and a $50 gift card.
