MASON, MI – To see her now, one would never guess that Clover was a stray dog living on the streets of Flint and suffering from multiple problems. When Kelly Hekler of Mason saw her photo she knew she had to give Clover a good home, and she did! Clover has this cool doggie-maison all to herself. Kelly sent in this photo of Clover and her new home and is the March 2023 pet photo contest winner. For winning, Kelly will receive a freshly made sampler box filled with a variety of delicious Better Made Snack Food products and Clover will receive some treats from Hunter’s Healthy Treats.

Pet contest photos of all kinds may be submitted by sending an e-mail to or mailed to Better Made Pet Photo Contest, 10148 Gratiot Avenue, Detroit, MI 48213. Remember, Better Made encourages people to send in their most outrageous and/or cutest pet photo they can of their favorite pet, be it a dog, cat, goat, rabbit, bird, orangutan, frilled lizard, etc., and the funnier or cuter the better!

“The minute I saw Clover’s photo I knew she deserved an amazing life,” says Kelly. “After Clover healed, she became the best foster sister to a number of dogs and puppies from the rescue that she came from. Clover enjoys long walks in the woods, kayaking, helping collect sap for maple syrup, nature hikes, running on the sand dunes, splashing in Lake Michigan and being her mom’s travel buddy.”
