Contest has ended. Eastern Time


What it is:

New Fairfield/Sherman Animal Welfare (NFSAW) is sponsoring a pet-themed 2018 calendar contest, the proceeds from which will support our rescue efforts – as well as celebrate contestants’ dogs and cats!  The contest is open to everyone;  your photo entry does not have to be of a pet adopted from NFSAW – we love them all!

How it works:

Votes will determine if your pet’s photo will be featured in our calendar.  The top-vote recipient will win placement as the calendar’s ‘cover’ photo- as well as a $100 Petco Gift Card and a free copy of the calendar.

The 12 next most popular vote recipients will be featured as a full-page pet of the month and receive a free copy of the calendar as well.

The key to having your pet featured?  Share your entry with your friends, family and contacts – and encourage everyone to VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! 

Submitting your photo:
  1. Go to the contest website ( or follow the links from our website ( and Facebook page (New Fairfield/Sherman Animal Welfare).

    A)   Name of Pet(s) featured

    • Feature pets owned by the entrant (or the entrant must have permission from the pet’s owner to submit their pet’s image).

  4. Lobby for votes!  Once your pet has been submitted, share the link with your friends and family via social media, email and word of mouth.
Contest Rules:

  • The contest begins on August 21st,, 2017 and ends October 16th, 2017.  Winners will be announced on New Fairfield Sherman Animal Welfare Society’s Facebook page and in our local paper, the Town Tribune.

Would you just like to see your pet’s photo in the calendar on a specific day and month?  Perhaps on your birthday or your pet’s birthday?  This year you can reserve a specific calendar day and upload a photo to be featured on that day in exchange for a donation of $20.  This ensures your pet will get a spot in our calendar on his/her special day!  This form is available under the Participate drop-down on our contest site or right at this link: Reserve Your Calendar Day Here →
