The Burton Fletcher Foundation is a paw
We are thrilled with the Burton Fletcher Foundation’s festive approach to outreach and their whole mission in general.
Based in Georgia, the foundation was founded by Burton Fletcher, lawyer emeritus, as well as a retired professor of business administration. He spent 27 years teaching at various colleges and universities.
The foundation itself is a tax-deductible, non-profit corporation “dedicated to improving the plight of abused, injured, abandoned and wild animals in South Georgia.”
They strive to find these animals forever homes and work to “unite the hearts of the community to provide service, affection, dignity and respect to these deserving animals.”
Plus, they offer anyone who loves animals the opportunity to âvolunteer, foster, adopt, advocate or donate, so homeless animals can count on youâ.
Enter your dog in their contest!
The foundation’s photo competition is accepting submissions from anywhere in the United States until December 15, 2021, reports the Valdosta daily timetables.
They hope this will provide an opportunity for “adopted dog owners to share their pet’s love” while raising awareness of the quality of rescue dogs.
To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old, living in the United States. Applicants also cannot be related to anyone who works for the foundation.
You can participate by submitting ONE black and white photo and / or ONE color photo. You don’t need to submit both, but you can submit one of each type if you want.
A panel of judges will determine the winners once the registration period has ended. They will base their judgment on the photos 40% on creativity, 30% on the relevance of the theme and 30% on the quality of the image.
The entry requirements are a bit more extensive, so be sure to read them. You can also use the link to find all the details of the competition set up.
