Paws and Pose Pet Photo Contest

Do you have great pet pictures? Want to show off your fabulous pet pics for a chance to star in our 2025 calendar, win great prizes and help street cats in your neighborhood?
Submit your best pet photos to the North Bergen Purr Paws and Pose Calendar Photo Contest! Submit as many times as you want.

The photo that receives most votes will be featured on the cover of the 2025 North Bergen Purr Calendar! The next eleven (11) photos with the most votes will be showcased on a month in the calendar. There will also be a Judges Choice winner featured on a month in the calendar so photos with less votes have a chance to win!

In addition, anyone can reserve a day especially for your pet on the 2025 North Bergen Purr Calendar on a first-come-first-served basis! Make a timeless tribute to your pet, whether you reserve the date you brought your pet home, your pet's birthday, or even your own birthday. Just select your date, provide a pet photo and name, and that photo will appear on that day of the calendar with your pet's name! Makes a great gift and you can pre-reserve your calendars now!

North Bergen Purr is fundraising to receive a matching grant from United Spay Alliance. The grant money will be used to spay and neuter street cats in our community and help address our growing street cat population humanely! If we raise $2000, we will receive a $2000 grant for a total of $4000, which we can use to fix over 50 cats! Did you know that spaying or neutering just one street cat can prevent 2000 new kittens in four years? That means with your help we can prevent thousands of cats from being born on our streets!

Reserve a Day to Honor Your Pet
Just want a guaranteed spot in the calendar? Reserve a day to honor your pet. This can be for your pet's adoption anniversary, birthday, loved one's birthday, memorial or really any special day!
