Make your pet a star

Here's a chance to make your pet a star.

The Echo Press is putting together a "Pet Page of Fame" that will showcase the lovable and lively pets that call this area home.

The newspaper launched the effort to coincide with "Be Kind to Animals Week," May 3-9.

Readers are invited to submit a full-color photo of their pet, along with a form on page A6 in today's paper and a $20 contribution. Pet owners may also e-mail their photos. Call (320) 763-3133 to arrange payment.

All the money raised will go directly to the Lakes Area Humane Society.

The pet photos will be published in the Echo Press next Friday, May 7 in a "Pet Page of Fame" special section.

All types of pets are eligible - dog, cat, fish, iguana, parakeet, goat, etc.

Photos will be returned if the submitter provides a self-addressed stamped envelope. Or pet owners may pick up their photos at the newspaper office, 225 7th Avenue East, Alexandria, after the publication date.
