Prep Your Pets, The Merrimack’s Dog Days of Summer Returns

Merrimack County Savings Bank (The Merrimack) is excited to announce the return of their Dog Days of Summer photo contest. Beat the heat and show off your pet for the chance to win $500, plus a $500 donation to a local non-profit animal rescue of your choice. Last year, Rosco was crowned The Merrimack’s top dog with his donation awarded to the Pope Memorial SPCA in Concord.

Now through Friday, July 28th, simply photograph your pet(s) wearing The Merrimack’s branded bandana, which you can pick up at any Merrimack branch. Then submit up to ten (10) of their most adorable candids by tagging @MerrimackStyle on Instagram, including #merrimackstyle and #merrimackdogdays. Entries may also be emailed to [email protected].

The five (5) finalists will be posted on Instagram for public vote on Monday, August 14th. The finalist with the highest number of likes by the end of the day on Monday, August 28th, will receive a $500 cash prize and a $500 donation in their name to a non-profit animal rescue of their choice located in either Merrimack County, Hillsborough County or Rockingham County.
