In 2015, we created a 2016 calendar that featured pets from our staff. We listed special holidays and pet-related days throughout and we provided these free of charge to all who wanted one. The following years (2017 & 2018), we held our annual contest to select your pets for the following year’s Calendar. The response each year is overwhelming! Winners are photographed and those images are used in our calendar each year. Calendars are available for free throughout the year, while supplies last.
Because of the overwhelming feedback, we have turned this into an Annual Calendar Contest. This year we will be accepting photo submissions as entries into the contest through Saturday at midnight, October 13th. The staff will then make their selections and we will announce the winners on Monday, October 22nd.
Each winner will receive a mini photo session.
The contest begins on at midnight on Friday, September 20th. You can submit photos via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or using the form below. We will accept photos via email through October 22, 2018 (midnight). The photo used for submission will not be used for the calendar. Your pet will be photographed by a member of our staff. We will contact winners to schedule each photo shoot.
Your pet does not need to be a dog or cat. He or she can be any type of animal we see at Claws & Paws. This includes dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, turtles, etc. We can’t wait to see your pet’s photos. Remember to email them to email@example.com or using the form below to be entered.

- All photo submissions must be received by midnight (CST) on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
