The Fayette Humane Society is kicking off its annual “Pet Calendar Photo Contest.” Is your pet cute, funny, acrobatic or mischievous? If your picture-perfect pet likes to ham it up for the camera, this is your chance to make them a local star!
“By participating in our Calendar Photo Fundraiser, your entry and vote donations will be supporting our vital programs and services. It will help with the receiving and adoption of animals, education programs, humane law enforcement, low cost spay/neuter program, trap-neuter-return program and our spay/neuter clinic,” said Brad Adams, outreach director for FHS.
You may submit as many pictures as you would like, each accompanied by a $5 submission donation. Voting may take place immediately after the photo is submitted and will end on Sept. 1. The top 12 winners will each be a “pet of the month” in the 2018 calendar and will receive a free calendar. All other pictures submitted will be included in the calendar in a smaller size. Contestants may submit photos by mailing them to 153 S. Main St., Suite 3, Washington Court House, OH 43160 or by visiting their website at www.fayettehumanesociety.com
This year’s photo contest allows contestants to tell about their pet and has easy share options for social media to campaign for more votes. The results are also updated in real-time as the photo receives votes.
Adams added, “With the help from calendar photo submissions, we can make a significant positive impact in the lives of animals and people in our community, and this is the perfect way to have fun doing it.”
The Fayette Humane Society is a non-profit (501(c)(3), volunteer organization. They receive less than 2 percent of support from governmental organizations and therefore must rely on donations, grants and fundraising to carry out their mission. The Humane Society is the only organization in Fayette County able to respond to calls about abused, neglected and domestic animals, 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
