If you are a cat or dog loving family and are an advocate for the adoption of shelter animals, we'd like you to help us identify the most adorable and funny furry friends around town.
Each year the McCook Humane Society and McCook Cat Pack volunteers design and create a 12 month calendar featuring adopted or rescued cats and dogs. All photos submitted within the contest rules are a part of next year's calendar.
To participate, you do not need to be a resident of Red Willow County, Nebraska. We welcome all rescue and adoption stories! The top cat and top dog receiving votes (most votes earned in each category) will receive the calendar honor of "Cover Model of the Year" and will be inducted in to the McCook Humane Society calendar "Paw of Fame" poster.
Votes are One Dollar ($1.00) each.
Votes can be entered now through the contest deadline ending Sunday, August, 11th, 2019, 7:00pm CST. You can vote for your favorite photo as often as you wish and we encourage your family, friends, and place of work to vote for your favorite pet photos too. There is no limit to the number of votes one may cast. All contest voting donations are tax deductible and benefit the McCook Humane Society.
Two top winners will grace the cover of the 2020 calendar and awarded, "Cover Model of the Year," honors. Each winning photo owner will also receive the first and second place prizes outlined in the "Contest Rules / Prizes" section.
The McCook Humane Society survives on the generous contributions and donations from our community, family members, partnering businesses and sponsors, and not for profit organizations who share a commitment to the southwest Nebraska /northwest Kansas animal shelter mission.
For the past seven years all donations raised in the McCook shelter pet photo contest (100% of all contest proceeds) and calendar sales have directly benefit the McCook Humane Society.

About The McCook Cat Pack: Friends of the McCook Humane Society
The McCook Cat Pack is a youth group committed to serving the McCook Humane Society cause and mission. In 2009, McCook Humane Society leadership adopted the youth fundraisers and over time coined the phrase, The McCook Cat Pack (MCP) volunteers.
The purpose of the MCP is two fold:
1. Raise awareness about the McCook Humane Society and the joys of shelter adoption
2. Host fundraising projects and events which raise important donations to help operate the McCook Humane Society.
This summer (2019) is our McCook Cat Pack volunteers 10 year anniversary hosting events and related projects for the southwest, Nebraska animal shelter. The McCook Cat Pack can be reached at:
