Welcome to the second annual City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue Calendar Contest!To participate, enter your favorite photo of your City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue alumni for a donation of $30 and then, share your photo with family and friends and invite them to vote for your pet to win a spot in the 2023 City Dogs & City Kitties Calendar!
Votes are $1 each and all funds raised will support the important operations of City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue. The contest this year is open to CDCK alums across the globe.
We want to see your CDCK alum strike a pose in their favorite place, whether it is sun charging in their favorite window sill or climbing mountains near and far. Be creative, we know you have hundreds of photos of them on your phone!
The top 6 winners in each category determined by the highest number of votes will win a spot in a professional photoshoot, on Saturday, October 1, with talented local photographer Hannele Lahti
, and will have their picture displayed in a coveted place on the walls of many CDCK supporters throughout the DMV and across the country as part of the 2023 calendar! The entrant with the most votes overall (cat or dog) will be our calendar cover star!
Any winner who does not live locally and cannot attend the photo shoot will work with local DC artist and graphic designer Keaton Van Beveren
have their CDCK alum creatively immortalized for the calendar.
Don't have a CDCK alumni (yet) or not sure you want to enter for a chance to be in the calendar? You can still support our 2023 Calendar Contest by voting for and sharing your favorite entries, or Reserve a Day on the calendar and we'll put your favorite photo of your pet on the date square of your choice for a donation of $50 (one pet per day, dates are first come, first served). You will have the opportunity to donate more than $50 per Reserve a Day if you would like!
