March is Pets Month at Instructables!

Do you keep animals as pets? Then you've got a pet project, skill, or trick to share.
Our pets need food, a home, and a lot of love. We try to make them comfy and happy, but no matter how many books you read there's a lot to learn from experience.

So what are your tips and tricks for your pets? How do you care for them, make them feel like they're a part of the family, or even just keep them safe and snug? What have you built for your pet?

Share a pet-themed Instructable this month and you could win an Instructables t-shirt or a patch.

Read the full contest rules here.

The Pets Month is closed.


Voting, Judges, and Random Prizes

The two Instructables with the most votes, two selected by Instructables staff, and one random entry will all win an Instructables robot t-shirt.


Instructables that include good directions and photos will be entered in a drawing to win one of 12 Instructables patches.

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Mar 1, 2008 and Apr 3, 2008 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Pets Month. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
