Contest has ended.
The minimum donation for submitting a photo for the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society’s Cutest Pets Calendar Contest is $25 per photo entry.

Entries are limited to one photo per entry fee and must be submitted online. You may submit as many entries as you like.
Once entered, all photos become the property of the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society and can be used, edited, or modified for print or marketing purposes. Note: Winning photos will be “enhanced” to reflect this year’s outer space theme!
Any photo or caption deemed inappropriate by MHHS staff will be eliminated from the contest.
Online entries must be received by Sunday, September 15, 2019, 9:00:00 PM EST. Sorry, we cannot accept hard copies.
All eligible photos will be included in the 2020 calendar.
