Introducing ITV’s Second Canine Carnival King and Queen Contest! What is a carnival without a Royal Court? We need you to select a King and Queen to preside over our Canine Carnival on March 23, 2019 at Tropicana. The male animal and the female animal who receives the most votes will be crowned King and Queen, respectively. The winners will receive a crown, be our special guests at the Canine Carnival Ball (with their guardian) and receive a prize package. Finally, the winners will be featured on our social media pages regarding the contest.

We will also crown a Prince and Princess! The male animal and the female animal who receives the second most votes will be crowned Prince and Princess, respectively. They will also be part of the Canine Carnival Royal Court as our special guest (with their guardian) on March 23 and receive a prize package.

We encourage you to enter the contest with your favorite photo of your pet and a few words about your beloved. Then invite your family and friends to vote for your photo! The contest is open to anyone and you may enter your photo for only $20. Your photo entry does not have to be of an ITV rescue. We welcome photos of all small animals – beautiful and regal, silly and goofy, naughty and nice, rough and tumble, indoor snuggle bunnies and outdoor adventurers.


Contest begins Friday, February 1, 2019 at 8:00 am (CDT) and photo submissions are accepted through Sunday, March 3, 2018 at 11:59 pm (CDT). Voting opens on Monday, March 4, 2018 at 8:00 am (CDT) and voting ends on Monday, March 18 at 9:00 pm (CDT).
