The deadline is midnight Central Time Dec. 15 to enter your pet's photo in the "Patriot Family Pet Photo Contest.''
As of Dec. 12, more than 400 entries had been received, and they're still coming in, said Judd Anstey, spokesman for the Army and Air Force Exchange Service. Besides becoming famous, your pet could win you a $1,500 AAFES shopping spree. Six winners will receive from $350 to $1,500 each in shopping sprees. Winners who don't live near an AAFES exchange will be able to shop online for their prizes. The contest is open to any eligible exchange shopper, regardless of your branch of service.
To enter, shoppers can send a photo of themselves or family members with their pet to PatriotFamily@aafes.com with "Patriot Family Pet" in the subject line. Include name, address, phone number, rank/occupation and pet's information - name and breed or type of pet - in the e-mail. Also send a description of the furry, scaly or feathery friend, explain why that pet is so special, and keep it to 50 words or less.
In addition to the shopping sprees, the winning photos will be featured in future AAFES advertisements as well as on Exchange TV, AAFES' in-house TV network.
