Pawsitively Pawsome

Welcome to Royal Animal Refuge's Pawsitively Pawsome 2020 Calendar
Since opening our doors in 2017, Royal Animal Refuge has rescued over 2,000 homeless pets. We are a non-profit private rescue and shelter dedicated to helping the homeless, neglected, and mistreated pets. We rely on fundraising and donor support to provide much needed medical attention, care and housing. Our dedicated volunteers help at the shelter in every capacity including kennel cleaning, laundry, transport, feeding, medical care, and providing much needed love and attention so that these sweet and goofy personalities bloom!

Just upload your favorite pet's photo, their name and a brief bio, pay a $10 donation and you'll automatically receive 5 votes. [DOGS ONLY IN PHOTO, NO PEOPLE.]

To win, ask everyone you know to vote for your dog – share your entry on social media and by email with family, friends and co-workers. The top 12 winners who receive the most votes will be featured as the cover dog in one of the calendar months! In case of a tie, we will make sure the winners are included, even if it means 2 photos share one month. The contest is open to everyone.

Order Your Pawsitively Pawsome 2020 Calendar
Enjoy Royal Animal Refuge's inaugural calendar! Please consider pre-ordering calendars. This helps RAR purchase the right number of calendars, so we don't waste valuable rescue funds on extra stock.

Calendar Pre-order →

Calendars will be mailed as soon as they are received after the contest ends and will make great Holiday gifts.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help us continue our efforts to rescue, rehab and rehome adoptable dogs.

Additional Guidelines
  • While we all love our dogs, your dog may have a canine or feline companion. Please feel free to include them in the photo if it is one of your favorites. [PETS ONLY IN PHOTO, NO PEOPLE.]
  • Please provide high resolution photos so they will reproduce well. The better the resolution, the nicer the photograph will reproduce on the calendar. If a winning photo is not high resolution and we are unable to obtain a high resolution, we reserve the right to select the next photo with the most votes.
  • When providing your pet's bio, keep in mind that people love to read about where you adopted your pet from (it doesn't have to be a Royal dog), how you learned about your pet, funny characteristics that you might want to share, any inspirational thoughts that might have, or positive impacts your pet has made.
  • By submitting your photo, you agree to provide nonexclusive rights for Royal Animal Refuge to reproduce the photo for other purposes including marketing, educational or fundraising campaigns.
  • The more you share your entry in the contest with friends, social media, at work, the better chances you have to win one of the top spots and make an impact with helping homeless pets. Votes are $1 per vote, $5 minimum.
  • This is a fun and exciting way to show you care as a rescue supporter!
  • Calendars make excellent holiday gifts! People love seeing a big goofy smile, a peaceful dog hiking scene, or a couple of canine pals gracing their home or office each month.
