Welcome to the PAWS Make Your Pet A Star Calendar Photo Contest Fundraiser! This fundraiser is a wonderful way to celebrate your pet while helping us raise funds for our programs. We are doing things a little different this year and YOU will get to decide the winning photos through our online photo contest! The 13 photos that receive the most votes will receive prizes (see our Prizes page) and will be featured as our cover photo and 12 monthly photos. Don't think your photo can generate that many votes? We will also have a Judge's Choice photo (chosen by a local photographer) that will win prizes too! The remaining photos will be posted as thumbnail pictures on the days of the week.
Our photo contest is open to all types of pets however, there should be NO HUMANS in the photos. Entry fee for each photo is $10.00. When you enter your photo you will have the chance to say a few words about your pet(s). Then invite your friends and family to vote for your photo! Votes are $1 each. A minimum vote donation of $5 is required. SUBMIT YOUR PHOTO ENTRY HERE!
All proceeds will benefit the programs of PAWS which include Animal Shelter Rescue, Spay/Neuter Assistance, Pet Therapy, Tag Your Pet, as well as education and outreach. PAWS is a 501(c)3 organization, making all donations towards voting in the contest tax deductible. You can vote as often as you like. You can apply all of your votes to one photo or vote for multiple photos during the contest.
For the best chance to win, be sure to spread the word about your pet's entry into the contest. Ask family and friends to go online and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! You can use the sharing buttons that appear on your pet's photo page to share your photo entry with your Facebook friends and Twitter followers. And you can email links to family and friends to encourage voting for your pet's photo.
