Lancaster’s Cutest Pets Calendar Contest

Picture your best friend on our 2024 calendar!

Is your pet adorable? Of course they are! Photo submissions are closed, but now you can vote for your favorite animal companion in our photo contest to benefit Humane Pennsylvania in Lancaster. Voting runs from September 28th through October 17th, 2023. 

There will be three rounds of voting to determine the cutest pets. Vote tallies will be zeroed out after each round to ensure a level playing field at the start of each round. You can vote for free once each day from Thursday through Sunday during each voting round. Or, you can buy votes for only $1 per vote on any day of each voting round. There is no cost to enter the contest.

This photo fundraiser is a great way to celebrate your best friend while also supporting Humane Pennsylvania in Lancaster. A portion of the price of each $1 vote will go to Humane Pennsylvania in Lancaster to help fund their adoption centers, accredited non-profit veterinary hospitals, emergency animal rescue services, community pet assistance programs, and an animal-focused charitable foundation. Last year's calendar contest generated $10,000 for Humane Pennsylvania in Lancaster!

After the three rounds of voting, the twelve top vote-getting pets (using votes from final round) will be featured in a beautiful, glossy wall calendar. The pet with the highest number of votes in the 3rd round will also have their photo on the cover of the calendar!

The twelve winners have the option to sign up to have a FREE professional photo taken of their pet for the calendar.* Winners will receive a free copy of the calendar and a free digital copy of the photo. Calendars will also be available to purchase, with a portion of the proceeds going to Humane Pennsylvania in Lancaster. See our prizes.

*Professional pet photos will be scheduled on two days in October at Greenfield Corporate Center. If your pet is a winner but you cannot attend during the available dates/times, we will use the photo you submitted to the contest.

Helpful tips:

Only submit one photo of your pet. This will increase your odds of winning because your friends and family won’t have to choose which of your pet’s photos to vote for.

The contest rules are here. Important information, please read!

Remember to frequently check your pet’s standing toward the end of the contest in case you want to vote again. Voting gets very brisk toward the end of each voting round.

Lastly, remember that every vote helps support animal welfare in our area so please vote early and often!
