Pets in the City
Thank you for being a part of the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria
's biggest fundraiser, our annual photo calendar contest. By sharing your Pets in the City, you are raising funds to support animals at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter and throughout the community.
We have expanded our grand prize package, and the pet with the most votes at 8 p.m. on June 30 will now also have their photo appear on buses across Northern Virginia throughout the month of December! Check out the grand prize and all of our prize packages on our Prizes
Haven't registered yet but want to help your pet achieve cover model fame? We have plenty of fun calendar challenges
coming up to help you climb the leaderboard.
How Does It Work?
Register your pet on this page any time between June 1 and 30, 2018, but keep in mind that early entrants are likely to get the most votes
. Tell your pet's story with a photo, text or even a video showing off their best tricks. The pet with the most votes on June 30 will be our grand prize winner
and named Alexandria's 2019 Animal of the Year, so make sure to encourage your friends and families to vote early and often. Fun calendar challenges
and events to help you win more votes will be announced throughout the month of June, so stay tuned for updates on how you can help your pet make their way up the leaderboard. Read more about what else is new
for this year's calendar contest!
Your $30 registration is considered a tax-deductible donation to the AWLA. More than one pet can be included in each registration, and registration is not limited to AWLA alum or Alexandria residents; all pets are welcome. Every pet who enters will be included in the 2019 AWLA photo calendar!
