Ready, Set, Glamour!
As the end of August is nearing you still have ample time to send in your pet’s best glamour shot to be featured in our 2016 Pet Calendar Photo Contest. There are four convenient ways to enter your pet’s photos into the contest. You are able to upload your pet’s photos online at www.humane.org in addition to mailing in, emailing, or dropping off your entry at our animal care center located at 6781 San Casa Drive, Englewood. All submissions must be received no later than August 31, 2015. Once you upload your pet’s photo online, the photo will appear in the online gallery of the photo contest and become open to voting by the general public. Even if you don’t submit your pet’s photo online, you can request for the photo to be uploaded to the online gallery. You can vote for your pet’s photo with votes that are a $1 donation each, with a minimum donation of $5 (five votes). Encourage your friends and family to vote for your pet’s photo! The 62 online photos with the most votes will be eligible for final judging by an independent panel for the front cover, back cover, pet of the month (12), and honorable mentions (48). All acceptable photo entries will appear in the calendar. Each photo is subject to a $25 entry fee, which includes a complimentary 2016 Pet Calendar. You can pick up your complimentary calendar starting in November 2015 at our adoption center, or have the calendar shipped to you directly for an additional $4 donation. Winners will be announced on www.humane.org by September 14, 2015. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this annual pet calendar go directly towards supporting our programs, services, and homeless pets.
