Think your widdle biddy snugglepuss is the cutest widdle biddy snugglepuss ever? All pet owners do — it's a phenomenon. Yet, oddly, no one has ever done the hard work of determining who is scientifically America's cutest pet.

Well, we at Refinery29 are stepping up to this historic challenge with our first annual Adorbs Awards — a new contest honoring America's most huggable animal. And, yes, we're inviting you to enter your sweetie pie for consideration.

If you think your four-legged BFF has what it takes to out-cute all comers, enter the competition by Instagraming an aww-inducing new pic with #AdorbsAwards (props and pet fashions encouraged). Then, our expert judges — style-blogging sensation Menswear Dog, the furry, viral star Lil' Bub, and our own news editor and cute-animal specialist Leila Brillson — will determine if your baby boo is quantifiably the cutest in the country. If so, we'll hook you up with $1,000 and donate $1,000 to Farm Sanctuary (an animal-protection nonprofit) in your name. It's a win-win-win!

So, visit our contest page for details, browse through the other adorable contestants, do a little last-minute grooming, and get snapping. It's time to make some very cute history.
