One "K-9 Kissing King or Queen™" will be selected in each city. The dog with the most online votes at the end of a 30-day voting period will be crowned the winner for that location, win a prize package provided by sponsor PetzLife and automatically be entered into the national competition.

Proctor has developed the year-long road tour to raise awareness for animal rescue and welfare organizations, and honor the deep relationship between pets and their owners. A portion of the $5 entry fee at each tour destination goes directly to benefit a local animal welfare or rescue organization.
While they will not be entered into the official contest, animal lovers across the nation can also participate in the fur-filled fun - without going to the expo - by uploading pictures of themselves kissing their dog(s) on Facebook at @AmericasSmoochiestPooch, or by tagging an Instagram photo with #kissingdogs.
The SoCal Amazing Pet Expo will be held at the Long Beach Arena, located at 300 East Ocean Boulevard, Long Beach, CA 90802. Get directions and dog attendee requirements at http://www.socalpetexpo.com/
