Woods Humane Society Announces 2nd Annual Pets of the Year Calendar Contest

Local Dog & Cat Owners Can Register from July 1-31, 2024

Woods Humane Society announces its second annual Pets of the Year Calendar Contest, open to public entry from July 1 through July 31, 2024.

Contestants who submit a photo of and story about their pet can garner votes (donations) on their contest webpage throughout the month for a chance to be featured in a beautiful, pet-themed 2025 print calendar. Woods will unveil the calendar and winners at the Woods Humane Society Wiggle Waggle Fall Festival on October 26, 2024.

“For the second year in a row, we are excited to celebrate the dogs and cats in this community through this fun contest, which also raises much-needed funds for the animals at Woods,” says Woods CEO Emily L’Heureux. “Every dollar donated to participants’ pages counts as a vote for that animal’s photo and also helps dogs and cats in need at Woods Humane Society.”

There is no registration fee to participate in Woods Humane Society’s Pets of the Year Calendar Contest. Calendar contestants earn a vote with every one-dollar donation made to their contest page, and the ten top fundraisers will win a featured spread in the calendar, four printed calendars, and will be a featured pet of the month in 2025 in a Woods social media post, email and website post. All contest participants who raise $25 or more will win a print calendar and their pet’s picture in a collage page in the calendar. 

The Pets of the Year contest begins on July 1, 2024 and runs until midnight on July 31, 2024. To read more about the contest rules, prizes, and guidelines, visit
