Awesomest Pet Mural Contest - $22,822 raised!

We held a contest from Dec. 2, 2020 to Jan. 13, 2021 to raise funds for Options Veterinary Care to help pets in need who otherwise would not receive necessary veterinary because of financial reasons. No pet should suffer for financial reasons. We want to thank everyone who entered and voted in the contest — 117 people entered a pet photo, 357 voted, and at $1 a vote, $22,822 was raised!


Below are the six pets who will be incorporated into a mural to be installed in Options' waiting room, plus runners up. The six winners comprise the top two dog vote-getters, the top two cat vote-getters, the top "other small pet" vote-getter, and one image chosen by artist Connor Fogal that he'd like to include in the mural. And be sure to follow our Facebook page for updates on the mural or sign up for Options updates for occasional emails about what's happening at Northern Nevada's only nonprofit veterinary clinic for the public.
