These Cutest Couples Photo Contest Winners Will Melt Your Heart

The 2019 Cutest Couples Photo Contest was our fiercest, friskiest and most adorable competition yet!

We asked you to celebrate the month of love by Instagramming a selfie with your dapper four-legged Valentine or a snap of your two snuggled-up pets. And you did not disappoint! New and old ASPCA advocates joined the herd of animal-loving celebrities—like Eric McCormack, Patrick Wilson and Ashley Greene—who support the ASPCA’s fight for love.

The smiling faces of dogs, cats, pigs, chickens and more graced the #CutestCouples hashtag. We ended up with an incredible 7,290 entries! Congratulations to our three runners-up: Cassie L. (@ksadya4), Shannon S. (@sterling_and_katya), and Jeffery M. (@jeffrey_morin). See for yourself, their entries are too pure for this world.

And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Put your paws together for our grand prize winner Liesl W. (@picsassothewonkyandwacku), proud pet parent of Picasso and his pig pal, Pax. These besties inspired us—and all you voters around the country!—with their beautiful friendship. They remind us that all animals deserve love, all year round. Picasso and Pax will receive an ASPCA swag bag packed with prizes to share!
