Rescue Success photos are portraits or candid shots of a horse, pony, mule, donkey, cat, kitten, dog, or puppy that has been adopted from a rescue organization, or otherwise rescued, showing that the animal is safe, healthy, and loved. Photos will be judged on emotional impact, artistic merit, and technical merit of color, contrast, clarity, and focus.

Any rescue organization involved in a winner’s photo will also be recognized in the magazine with the animal, the photographer, and if different, the owner.  Any photographer, amateur or professional, 18 or older, can enter with no limit on the number of entries. But, there are necessary size and technical details in the official rules. There is an entry fee per photo which will directly benefit the non-profit, no-kill Foothills Humane Society and its equine division FERA.

Contest and prizes are thanks to the generous sponsorship of Burrell’s Fuel Inc./Diamond B Energies LLC.

Enter online, by mail, or in person. For official rules, terms and conditions, call 828-863-4444 or e-mail a request for rules to, or enter now at
