MISAWA AB – Everybody thinks their animal companion is the cutest. Now, military pet owners at Misawa can show off their big dogs or top cats with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and Hills Pet Nutrition Patriot Pet Just Say “Treat” Photo Contest.

From May 1 through May 31, military shoppers at Misawa can submit a patriotically themed photo of their pet or pets—whether they be furry, feathered or scaly—at ShopMyExchange.com/sweepstakes for a chance to win $3,000 in Exchange gift cards.

Two grand-prize winners will receive a $500 Exchange gift card, while eight runners-up will receive $250 Exchange gift cards.

“Pets can be a great source of comfort and support for Warfighters and their families,” said Misawa Exchange General Manager Michickia Carter. “The Patriot Pet Just Say ‘Treat’ Photo Contest is the Exchange’s way of celebrating these very special members of the military family—and giving their owners a chance to win an Exchange gift card on the side.”

Entries must include the pet’s name, entrant’s legal first and last name, mailing address, email address, phone number and their local Exchange. Photos must be submitted as-is without computer enhancement. All entries must be submitted online.

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 here for more information. Complete contest rules can be found at ShopMyExchange.com/sweepstakes.

Entries must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. Central time May 31. Winners will be selected on or around June 15.
