Your guide to a kid-friendly city

The June 2019 winners.

Enter your pet in the Seattle’s Child Family Pet Cover Contest!

We need family pets (and their kid buddies) for our March/April cover!

Pet contest: Is your dog a better co-parent than your spouse? Does your cat double as a night nurse? Is your lizard super-creepy, but also your child’s best friend? If so, your treasured family pet could end up on the cover of the Seattle’s Child magazine March Pet Issue and win pet prizes!

It’s our second Family Pet Contest! It is open to any family animal companions that live in the Seattle metropolitan area.

THE PET CONTEST FINE PRINT: Please send us a picture of your pet with your kid(s) and submit it to or post it to Instagram with the hashtag #FamilyPetContest by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Tell us what makes your pet special to your family! Three extraordinary family pets will be selected by Seattle’s Child staff and will then be photographed in a professional studio located in Belltown. Winners (and their families) MUST BE AVAILABLE FEB. 13, 2021, for a photography session. All three pet contest finalists will be featured in the Seattle’s Child March/April issue, as well as on our website and social media platforms. The First Place winner is featured on the cover of Seattle’s Child, and all winners will receive additional pet prizes.

Good luck!
