Vancouver Island Dogs 2023 Calendar Contest

Operation Freedom Paws Canada, in partnership with Pauliina Saarinen Photography, welcomes you to the Vancouver Island Dogs 2023 Calendar Contest. All proceeds from this photo contest and the sale of the calendar go to Operation Freedom Paws Canada Service Dog Program. OFP Canada matches rescue dogs with human partners who are living with a disability and provides the dog-handler teams with support, training and guidance for a minimum of 48 weeks. At the end of their training, the dog-handler teams certify as Service Dog Teams under the BC Guide Dog and Service Dog Act. OFP Canada is looking to build a permanent training facility in Fanny Bay on Vancouver Island.

To enter the contest, submit a photo of your dog with a $10 donation and start collecting votes for your entrant. Votes are $1/vote ($5 minimum).
