Yokota Air Base – Smile big and show off your canines—or felines, rabbits, birds or any pet!

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service, along with Blue Buffalo pet food, is once again hosting the Patriot Pet Just Say “Treat” Photo Contest. From May 1 to May 31, Yokota shoppers can submit a patriotically-themed photo of their furry friends at for a chance to win. One grand-prize winner will receive a $1,000 Exchange gift card, while four first-place winners will receive $500 Exchange gift cards.

“Most pet owners love posting pictures of their fur-babies,” said Yokota Exchange General Manager Shinobu Matsui. “With this Exchange contest, service members and their families can win great prizes by doing just that. We’re hoping a Yokota pet takes the top prize.”

All authorized Exchange shoppers 18 years or older can enter, including honorably discharged Veterans who have verified their eligibility to shop the Exchange online. Veterans can visit for more information. Complete contest rules can be found at Winners will be selected on or around June 6.
