Pet Election 2021
Become a part of history and have some fun along the way while campaigning for your pet to become the official Pet Ambassador for Port Coquitlam!
Candidates will compete with each other, campaigning for votes over the course of a month. The winner of this lighthearted pet election will be named PoCo’s Pet Ambassador by the Mayor himself and will represent the pets of PoCo at various events (dependent on the abilities of your pet). Their thoughts on pet toys, kibble, and walks will reign supreme. The winner will also receive the official symbols of the office, a place of honour on our website and in our museum, and eternal bragging rights!
Fill out the form below to register your pet for the election. Registration is totally free, but pets must reside in PoCo and have 2, 3, or 4 legs. Registration will close May 9th, 11:59pm.
Voting will run May 11 – June 18. Each $1 pledged to a pet counts as 1 vote, so campaigning is encouraged since, as per usual, the candidate with the most cash wins! Votes will be processed through Givebutter.com. All proceeds will go to PoCo Heritage Museum and Archives, the only museum in PoCo, a non-profit and registered charity dedicated to preserving and promoting our diverse history and heritage. The term for the Pet Ambassador is one year after which time they may run again for the position.
