SEATTLE, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of National Pet Month, Emeritus Senior Living is hosting a Pet Look-Alike Photo Contest on its Facebook page. To enter, go to www.facebook.com/pages/Emeritus-Senior-Living/82009373317?id=82009373317&sk=app_95936962634, and follow the instructions. Participants will be asked to upload a pet/owner photo that best shows off their similarities – either with one photo taken together, or two individual photos that will be posted side by side. The photos should include a caption that tells an interesting, touching or humorous fact about your pet. Submissions will be accepted until May 17.

"We understand how important pets are to our residents and the amazing health benefits pets bring to seniors," commented Budgie Amparo, Executive Vice President of Quality Services. "Pets provide companionship and a sense of purpose to a population that often feels isolated and alone. That's why most of our communities are pet-friendly."

Vote to Win! A panel of Emeritus Look-Alike Photo Experts will choose five finalists after May 17, and Emeritus Facebook fans can vote on the winners between May 23 and 30. The winner will be announced on Friday, May 31.

Prizes! The winning photo entry will win a $100 gift card to Petco.
