Enter your pet in the BC SPCA’s Calendar Contest
Celebrate them by winning them a spot in the BC SPCA’s 2022 Calendar.
For many animal-lovers, their pets have gotten them through some tough times during the past year and the Calendar Contest, presented by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, offers a great way to celebrate all the pets of B.C.
“With the events of the last year, many of us have been able to spend more time than ever with our pets,” said Tess Repenning, senior manager of digital giving for the BC SPCA. “We know there are lots of animal-lovers out there with a camera roll full of pictures of their pets and our annual Calendar Contest is the perfect way to share them while raising urgently needed funds for homeless, abused and injured animals.”
Last year, the BC SPCA helped more than 97,000 domestic, farm and wild animals in need, through cruelty investigations, sheltering and adoption, emergency veterinary care and rehabilitation and a wide range of outreach, advocacy and education services.
Participants are invited to upload their pet’s photo and story to the Calendar Contest website and then invite friends and family to donate in support of their furry friend. The 13 animals (12 months and one cover) with the most votes at midnight on Feb. 28 will win a spot in the 2022 BC SPCA Calendar.
This year’s contest also has some exciting new features thanks to the addition of presenting sponsor Hill’s Pet Nutrition. If you enter a super cute image but don’t make it into the top 13, you’ll still be in the running to be the Hill’s Honourable Mention, which will also be printed in this year’s calendar. Hill’s will also be giving 25 bonus votes to anyone signing up with a donation of $25 or more on the contest’s Feb. 11 launch day – a great incentive to register early and start sharing your perfect pet pic with family and friends.
Hill’s generously provides all the food for the cats and dogs in BC SPCA care and is excited to expand their relationship into sponsoring the Calendar Contest fundraiser.
“We are delighted to be supporting this fun and very important fundraiser. We could all use a smile these days, and what better way to do that than sharing our cute animal shots for a good cause,” said Frances Cheslo, engagement specialist, Hill’s Pet Nutrition Canada.
“We are so excited to see all the pictures that are shared and look forward to crowning one lucky pet as the Hill’s Honourable Mention.”
