Veterinary association looking for New Jersey’s cutest pet

    Think you’ve got the cutest pet in New Jersey? Leave it up to Facebook to decide.

    The New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association is using the social networking site to find and reward the “Cutest Pet in the Garden State.”

    Enter a photo of your pet on the NJVMA Facebook page and invite your friends to vote for little Scruffy or Killer. Most entries so far trend toward the canine variety, but there are a few cats and birds in the mix. You have until July 28 to enter, because voting starts the 29th.

    Winners will be announced in August when the three cutest pets will be awarded gift certificates of various denominations, vet visits and Frontline Plus supplies.

    There’s already a dog in a Superman costume and a cat curled up in the sink, so you’ve got your work cut out for you.
