Due to a large amount of traffic and participation in our photo contest, our servers have not been able to keep up with the demand and our website (and photo contest) have been going on-and offline over the past 48 hours. We’ve received many emails and phone calls about this issue and want everyone to know we are working to correct the situation.

HSSP is thrilled that there has been so much participation to help local pet shelters; however, to maintain a fair and accurate contest, we are extending the deadline for our photo contest for an additional week. The new deadline will be Friday, June 7 at 5 p.m. Eastern Time.

We will do our best to keep our servers online through the heavy traffic, and want to thank everyone again for their participation. We sincerely apologize for the problems and inconvenience.
