Dealing with people in New York City can be "ruff," but our pets always have our backs. That's why amNewYork is hosting a very special contest in honor of our loyal, furry (or scaled, or feathered) friends. That's right, we want you to show us your best pelfie -- that's a pet selfie -- and in turn, we're giving away a very special experience for one human/animal duo.

Enter your best shots now through Sept. 7, 2015, by sharing with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (use #amNYpelfie), or through the amNewYork app's snap and send feature.

Each day, our favorite will be amNewYork's Facebook cover photo and will score a spot in the following day's paper!

Once the entry period is over, you'll be able to vote for your favorites here at amny.com/pelfies. The grand prize winner will get one night of luxury at the pet-friendly Soho Grand Hotel in New York City for owner and pet.

See full contest rules here, and happy posing!
