2024 Handicapable Animals Calendar Contest

We would like to thank all the entrants and voter/donors for making this a successful fundraiser for Dharma Rescues dogs and cats.

Welcome to Dharma Rescue's fourth fund raising photo contest, the 2024 Handicapable Calendar! We are raising funds to support the operations of Dharma Rescue for the disabled and special need dogs and cats we care for.

This year we need to focus  on raising funds for medical care. We have been taking in some dogs and cats from the city shelters  needing medical care and healing time. The shelters are full and the sick, old, and injured dogs and cats are the first to be euthanised because they need more medical care and attention. With the animal shelters at full capacity, they cannot provide the cost of that care.

We  would like to thank everyone participating to support Dharma Rescue  by entering, voting, campaigning for votes, reserving a day, and purchasing a calendar. 100% of the money you donate and help raise goes to operating expenses for medical, food, therapy, and essentials needed for the paralyzed, disabled  and senior animals in our care. Your continued support means that our rescue can go on providing the best quality of life to these animals--even if they are never adopted, they all have forever homes at Dharma Rescue.
We hope this calendar brings awareness to the people who have given their hearts, love and time to care for special needs dogs, cats and other sentient beings. This calendar will be a tribute to these special individuals showing off their beautiful, loving, handicapable animal companions!

Adopt don't shop. Adopt a perfectly imperfect friend.


Check out About Dharma Rescue to learn more about us.

It's FREE to enter. Your fur friend can be present or over the rainbow bridge--they are always in our hearts. Also remember to add your fur friends' Instagram,  Facebook, Twitter so we can all see what they are up to!

Contest Prizes
There will be three categories: one for dogs one for cats and one for other ( 4 legged,2 legged, 0 legs,feathers,fins, fur, and skin). Each category will have a 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place winner. Prizes will be added when the sponsors send donations. In addition to those prizes, the dog, cat, or other, that has the overall highest votes gets to be on the cover of the calendar and will have the first pick on which month they want to be in. Since entry of others are not known what the other friend will be that's entered, the Others group will received gift cards.

We would like to give a special thanks to our generous sponsors of this fundraiser.  Because we take in disabled, injured and senior animals, we want to use only the best products out there to provide our rescues with the holistic care they deserve. We invited companies we respect in the industry to sponsor this calendar because they, too, believe in this mission. Please check them out and thank them for supporting our rescue.

 Diggin Your Dog      We are very happy to have Diggin your Dog products for prizes. hey are a very generous company who make quality handcrafted products. Looking for mushrooms to boost their immune system. Check out their website. We use their products to keep our rescues healthy.

Dr. Dee Blanco    Our favorite holistic vet is Dr Dee is offering to the winners a subscription to her new Substack platform where she is putting most of her basic educational content and controversial content. Her mission is to teach  pet parents how to give their animals more vibrant health, resilience, and vitality.

Gutter_Baby   Once again one of our  favorite artist Michelle is going to make a pet parent very happy with one of her mixed media pieces. She knows what every special need pet parent goes through, since she too is a pet parent to a disabled pup,Bella. She creates whimsical pieces and puts a lot of thought into the one she if going doing a commission on.

Penny and Pineapple   We are very happy to have artist Allana  donate a drawing for one of the winning entries in the contest. Allana is very talented, her work is very precise and she captures the expression of her subjects. You can tell she too loves animals.

Mark Metzner   Mark is a special talented artist, he is a renaissance man.  He is very meticulous and insightful when working on a subject. He loves animals and it shows in his work.

Wayward Hound Bakery   Every dog, and for sure  every dog at Dharma Rescue, love Wayward Hound  cookies. They are healthy natural cookies with all kinds of flavors ,blueberry,peanut butter,pumpkin,cheese, bacon,veggies and more.   This is a family owned business and they care about the animals. Don't tell our dogs but our cats like the cheese and bacon treats.

Inaba Foods   We think Inaba was the first to come up with the Churu. The ingredients are natural and the cats go crazy for Inaba, the dogs too. Its a great way to bribe your cat and tame the wildest kitten.  Dharma Rescues paralyzed kitties go to bed in their kennels after diapers come off and bottoms are cleaned.  Like little kids sometimes they don't want to go to bed but if they here that churu opening up they dash to their beds. Best bribery for kitties and even pups.

Susie Cakes  Even guardians need a little sweet time.  Susie Cakes are the best treat to relax with and be with a special need friend .

For $10 you can purchase a photo spot on any day of your choice; the donation goes to the Dharma Rescue DAWGS present and future rescues. You will be helping us help them: the ones who are first to be euthanized at the shelters and the first to be passed over for adoption because they are broken. We believe broken can always be mended.

We would like to ask if you purchase a date to please add your pet's name and their disability to the photo. If your pet has no disability then in a few words put down how fabulous your pet is. Because they all are amazing sentient beings!
