“Pooch Playoffs” 2023 is officially underway and organizers are now looking for both contestants and sponsors.

Clover Laine Photography is currently searching for Seattle Southside’s best pets to compete for the title of “Ulti-Mutt Cutie”!

Contestants donate a $99 fee, which gets them a professional pet portrait session and entry into a bracket-style competition with a chance to win exciting prizes from sponsors.

In 2023 they’re opening up the contest to both dogs and cats! After all, cat people deserve love too. So, with double the trouble and double the fun, they’re doubling the impact. They have 32 spots for contestants and are benefiting both Resilient Hearts Animal Sanctuary and CARES of Burien & Des Moines!

“From the moment our furry companions enter our hearts, they have loved us unconditionally,” said Lainey Poelzer, owner of Clover Laine Photography. “They are part of our family, our best friends, and sometimes they’ve even saved our lives. Frankly, it’s not fair that they love us so much just to leave us too soon. The least I can do is help you hold on to their loving faces so that they can look up at you forever.”

Sessions begin March 11 and spots are limited so book today at cloverlaine.com/pooch
