The 2018 Stop the Suffering “Rescues for Rescues” Calendar Contest

Is your rescue pet ready to be a calendar model?  Stop the Suffering is looking for 12 lucky rescue pets to share their happy, smiling face on the pages of our calendar.  This is a meaningful way to celebrate your pet.  Plus, your entry fee will support thousands of homeless animals that are still waiting for their moment to shine. See our official rules for more details.

Enter your favorite photo of your pet to win one of the 12 lucky spots in our 2018 Stop the Suffering Calendar. The winner will take home $100 and their pet will model for the cover of our 2018 Calendar!  Second place will receive $50 and the month of their choice. Third place will receive a basket full of prizes and the month of their choice.

Photo submission and voting for our contest starts on SEPTEMBER 5 and ends at midnight on OCTOBER 5, 2017. The entry fee is $5 and every voting dollar equals one point.  All entry and voting fees are tax-deductible.  The pets with the highest number of points will be our top 12 models.

Together we can reach our goal! 

We are working to break our 2016 records of transporting 4,150+ dogs and cats from shelters to rescues, adopting 75 pets to forever families and sponsoring over 1,875 animals in need of assistance from pulls fees to basic vaccinations to urgent veterinary care. 

We encourage you to share your entry by gathering friends, family, and co-workers to vote for your pet and support the Stop the Suffering animals.
