SLOCo Pet-ography

Give your pets the attention they deserve!

When the new County of San Luis Obispo Animal Shelter opens this summer, we want to fill it with pictures of success stories: animals who have found happy homes in our community. We also want to showcase the beautiful place in which we live.

Get your cameras and your pets ready

Take a picture of your pet in front of a recognizable icon or background in the county and submit your best shots here (gmail account required to upload photos).

We are a public shelter dedicated to matching our community's homeless and unwanted pets with new families, so photos of pets adopted from a shelter or humane society are preferred.
