Welcome to our first-ever Pet Portrait Calendar: A FUNraiser for the Animal Rescue League of Berks County. Inside, you will find more than 100 works of art by guest artists who volunteered their time and talent to create these incredible masterpieces to delight pet owners in our community and to help us raise critical funds to support our lifesaving care of animals in Berks County. Today, by voting and participating in this FUNraiser, you can do the same! Whether protecting the abused and neglected, caring for the sick, sheltering the homeless or finding new homes for abandoned, your vote today helps us provide food, shelter, medicine and love to nearly 5,000 animals each year who need our help.
Voting is simple, FUN and 100% of the proceeds go directly towards helping us care for animals in the shelter!
- Each vote is a $1 donation.
- Now through August 16 at 11:59PM, receive 100 extra votes when you donate $50! (That's 150 votes!!)
- You can vote as much as you want, as many days as the contest is open, and for as many portraits as you want!
- We need your help! Please encourage your friends and family to vote, too. We've placed share buttons throughout the contest page to make it easy for you to do so.
- But HURRY! Voting ends at 11:59PM on Sunday, August 16th.
The top 12 portraits that collect the most votes will be featured in our first-ever 2021 Pet Portrait Calendar, with an honorable mention page featuring all pet portraits that collect at least 100 votes.
Both the artist and the pet owner of the pet portrait that collects the most votes at the end of the contest will each receive:
- 2 tickets to our art-themed event, Mingle at the Museum (scheduled for April 17, 2021 at the Reading Public Museum, COVID-depending).

The Animal Rescue League of Berks County is a charitable 501c3 organization caring for nearly 5,000 animals each year to help them find second chances in a new home, or to help reunite them with their grateful owners. For more than 65 years, we've worked tirelessly to care for the sick, treat the injured, comfort the unwanted and protect the abused. Whether helping people in need keep their pets through surrender prevention programs, offering low-cost veterinary services and clinics, as well as outreach and education events throughout the county, our work goes far beyond the walls of the shelter.
