Ahoy mateys, and welcome to the 9th Annual Pin Up Paws Calendar Contest!
ARRR you ready for the chance to have your pet featured in our calendar? Then snap an adorable photo of your pet and enter our contest! Be sure to add a fun description to let people know why they should vote for your pet to be featured in the 2020 "Pets Ahoy" Pin Up Paws Calendar. The contest sets sail on Saturday, June 1st
, at 10:00am and returns to port on Saturday, August 17th
, at 8:00pm, when our winners will be revealed!
Each $1 donation your pet receives will count as one vote. The pet with the most amount of votes at the end of the contest will be our First Place Winner and will receive the coveted cover spot for the 2020 "Pets Ahoy" Pin Up Paws Calendar. 12 Second Place Winners will be featured for one of the months in the calendar. All First and Second Place Winners will be a part of a special photoshoot with award-winning photographer, Addison Fitzgerald. The 12 pets with the next highest amount of votes will be our Runners-Up and will have the image they submitted to the contest and a brief description of their pet featured in a 1 ½" space in the calendar. The top 80 pet contestants will have a thumbnail size image of their pet featured in a collage in the calendar. For a full list of all the treasure up for grabs, be sure to check out our prizes
The completed calendar will be revealed at our Pin Up Paws Party on Thursday, November 7th
. Our PUP Party Fundraiser is always exciting and this year will be no exception. In addition to a delicious dinner, live music, silent auction, wine pull, and more, we are excited to partner with the pirates from the Krewe of the 13 for this year's event! The Krewe of the 13 is a registered public charity which raises money to help local families who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in dire need. The pirates will be at our Pin Up Paws Party, so guests can expect swashbuckling fun from the Krewe throughout the night, and might even find themselves thrown in the pillory—for a good cause, of course!
We are so excited for this year's contest and hope you are too. By entering your pet into our contest you are helping the many pets who would otherwise not receive the care they need.
