Dust off the camera and fluff up your favorite pet because we've got the contest for you!

Now is the time to pimp out get your adorable best animal friend to help you win a couple of nights in a hotel.

The folks over at Stash Rewards, the loyalty program for independent hotels, has introduced their Pack Your Pet contest. The Facebook competition asks travelers to snap a picture of their pet enjoying themselves while on vacation and upload it to their Facebook page. Naturally, the more creative the photo is, the better the chance of taking home top prize.

From May 1-25, pet-lovers can upload up to three clever snaps of their pets and allow the public to vote on which is their favorite. The pics with the most likes will be narrowed down to three winners by a panel of judges. Each winner will score two nights in their favorite pet-friendly hotel in the Stash program like the The James, The Benjamin, Hotel Abri and The Shoreham to name a few. An inclusive list of properties that welcome your pet can be found on their website.

The entire month is considered National Pet Month so Stash is also considering their four-legged friends with a $500 donation to the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization, North Shore Animal League. With that, we give the rewards program two paws up!

Loyalty Programs...

We've found that loyalty programs through chains and other independent loyalty offerings like Stash just aren't as effective as individual boutique hotels offering airline miles directly to guests... at The Clarendon Hotel and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona we do just that - no matter what, you earn 500 to 2500 miles per night for booking directly, and 250 miles per night by booking through any other means... this really does beat out any loyalty program out there... at 2500 miles per night and some airlines doing 15000 mile reduced mileage awards anywhere in the US, you only have to stay with us for 6 nights... at another hotel where you might spend $150/night and get 1 point/mile per dollar, you'd have to stay 100 nights to get the same free flight... but just 6 nights at The Clarendon!
