As we head into the month of August and summer break’s final stretch, we’re shining a spotlight on the canine companions in our lives with a brand new contest created by Barrington Animal Hospital to celebrate our four-legged friends. The expert vets and caregivers at Barrington Animal Hospital have lined up FOUR sweet local prizes to help ONE lucky winner pamper their pooch. For a chance to win, all you have to do is tell us why your dog deserves to be treated to a special day out on the town in Barrington.

Post - Pampered Pooch Photo Contest - 2

Barrington Animal Hospital’s mission is to provide dogs and cats with the most comprehensive, highly-skilled and compassionate veterinary care in an atmosphere of healing, warmth and goodwill.

They believe that choosing the right veterinarian is key to providing your pet with the healthiest, happiest and longest life possible. And their “Pamper Your Pooch” contest is just one more way they’re putting that spirit of care-giving into practice.

So here’s how the contest works:

Using the form below, simply share a photo of one of your favorite canine companions and let us know why your pooch deserves a day of pampering. Whether Fido is a constant source of friendly companionship or Fifi has a way of cheering you up day-in and day-out, let us know what you love most about your dog. We’ll host a vote here at to let our readers decide which local pet deserves this collection of FOUR gift-card prizes hand-picked to help you plan the perfect day of pet pampering in Barrington.
