****Update – Calendars Are Now Available****
The 2017 Claws & Paws Calendar has been printed and you can stop by and pick up your copy today. We will also be giving them away at the Christmas Market (being held at New Hope Church) on Saturday, December 10th. These are completely free of charge. Our gift to you.
****The submission deadline for this contest has passed!****
All submissions have been received and our staff is currently selecting and contacting winners.
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 response to them has been overwhelming, so we thought this year we would include photos of some of our clients’ pets. So, how do we choose twelve pets to include this year, when we have thousands to choose from? Hold a contest, of course!
We are opening up a contest, beginning July 1, 2016 to choose pets to include on next year’s calendar.
How can you enter your pet? Send us a photo of your pet to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will accept photos via email through August 31, 2016. On September 1st, we will begin the process of choosing the winners and will then schedule short photo sessions with these pets to use in our 2017 calendar. We’ll then print them for distribution for 2017. We will make sure that the mom and/or dad of each pet chosen for the calendar receives a copy of the calendar.
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 to be entered.
If you missed last year’s calendar, you can see a short video highlight of it below.
