All this month NBC4 is helping to Clear the Shelters and find forever homes for our furry friends.
To celebrate this year’s campaign, Pat Collins is back with a new Pat’s Prized Pets challenge.
This year, we’re searching for the most unusual-looking pet.
If you think your pet looks a bit peculiar, it’s easy to join the challenge. Just take a picture.
We're making it easier for you to find stories that matter with our new newsletter — The 4Front. Sign up here and get news that is important for you to your inbox.
Post your photo to Twitter or Instagram and tag @nbcwashington, #CleartheShelters and #PatsPrizedPets. Or, email us at email@example.com.
Entries will be accepted until Aug. 30, 2021, at 11:59 p.m.
There are a few rules: The images can’t be filtered or altered, and never put a pet in any danger.
