The Merrimack Kicks Off Dog Days of Summer Photo and Coloring Contest

Merrimack County Savings Bank (The Merrimack) is kicking off its 3rd Annual Dog Days of Summer pet photo contest. Now through July 31st, snap a picture of your pet(s) wearing a Merrimack bandana for the chance to win $500, plus a $500 donation to a local animal rescue non-profit of your choice. Last year’s winner, Ellie, awarded her donation to the Humane Society of Greater Nashua.

To enter, simply photograph your pet(s) wearing The Merrimack’s green branded bandana, which you can pick up at any Merrimack branch. Then submit up to 10 photos per pet, maximum of five pets, by tagging @MerrimackStyle on Instagram or by uploading the photo(s) to The Merrimack’s website.

The five finalists will be posted on Instagram for public vote on Monday, August 5th. The finalist with the highest number of likes by 3pm (EST) on Monday, August 12th, 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.
