This is the third-annual pet issue for the AJT. Each year we ask Jewish Atlanta to submit pet photos to be published in the issue. We generally receive 15 to 20 entries each year, but this year, the overwhelming response shows just how engaged you are. We received almost 100 entries and, as promised, we are publishing all of your pets.
With so many entries, we chose our six favorite pets and let Jewish Atlanta vote on the winner for the cover. Voting closed Monday, June 25.
