We are so excited to share The Hoboken Girl’s 3rd Annual Puppy Bowl is here for another round of adorable nominating, voting, and winning. We can all agree that Hudson County is a great place to live (and play!) with a pup, so sharing photos of your adorable four-legged friend is a must — especially when prizes are involved and when it helps a local non-profit rescue. One lucky dog will be crowned the winner of some amazing local prizes. We will also be donating a portion of the sponsorships to Wise Animal Rescue, and we encourage those who enter to do the same.
The contest will take place from Friday, February 3rd through Thursday, February 16th.
Our version of Puppy Bowl is a PuppyBowl Photo Contest.
Starting Friday, February 3rd, submit your pet’s cutest photo to email@example.com.
The photo can be of your furry friend in their cutest outfit or in their birthday suit, with a description of their favorite things so voters can get to know what makes them such a good dog. Include a screenshot of your donation of $5 or more to Wise Animal Rescue –our rescue of choice this year – for *extra* consideration.
Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 PM on Tuesday, February 7th. The nine finalists will be announced on Friday, February 10th at which time the entire community will vote on which pup is the cutest canine. Voting will end on Sunday, February 12th at 11:59PM and the winner of The Hoboken Girl’s Puppy Bowl Contest 2023 will be announced on Thursday, February 16th.
