I would like to put together a post of children demonstrating proper animal handling techniques for the Hell YesBiscuit! blog. The idea being to contrast with the mishandling of shelter pets by animal shelter workers so often seen in photos online. If you would like to submit a photo for inclusion, please keep the following guidelines in mind:
- Photo should feature at least one pet and one child in keeping with theme. The child need not be entirely visible, e.g. just hands holding a pet is ok, but it should be obvious that the person is not an adult.
- Please include a brief caption identifying the pet, child, and what area you are from. Your caption can be specific (e.g. “Sally, age 5, and shelter pet Fluffy in South Carolina”) or vague (“Neighborhood kid with our Pitbull in New England”). If you prefer to remain anonymous, please indicate that.
- Photo should have no copyright issues – that is, the photo should be taken by you, a family member or someone who isn’t expecting payment for the use of the photo.
- Please e-mail photos to me no later than April 30, 2013.
I hope lots of readers will consider participating.
