Pet of the Month

 Here is the winning photo on the October 2018 page of our calendar – and she, Poppy, is also our 2018 cover girl!

The photos are judged and feature photos are chosen to be used as the large photo for each of the 12 months in the 2018 calendar.

Pet of the Month 2019 Application Form


The calendar for 2019 will be in landscape format, with blank spaces to enable you to write appointments, important dates, and other information on the page. You will not be able to choose a particular day for your pet, but your pet will be featured in the top portion of the month you choose if we have space. The featured photo we choose for each month will be the main image and other images for the month will be shown in a smaller format framing the main image.

Buy as many month slots as you like. Send us the payment, the application, and pictures with your month selection(s) and we’ll do the rest. The cost is $20 per submission. Your pet’s photo and name will appear on one of your requested months subject to availability. Get your photos in early as there are only twelve months in the year, twelve pages for photos and limited spots on each page.

The last day to submit your photo(s) is May 31, 2018!
