Make your pet a star with the BC SPCA’s 2013 calendar contest

The Animal Lovers’ Calendar is given as a gift to supporters every year

You already know your pet is a star – now you can make sure everyone else knows it, too.

The BC SPCA recently announced the 2013 Animal Lovers’ calendar contest, a chance for your furry friend to win one of 12 coveted spots in the non-profit society’s popular annual calendar.

“We all know that our pets are beautiful and the Animal Lovers’ calendar contest is an opportunity to show them off while helping B.C.’s most vulnerable, at-risk animals at the same time,” says Lorie Chortyk, the society’s general manager of community relations.

It only costs $10 to enter the contest, and registration is fun and easy. Between March 20 and April 19, guardians simply visit spca.bc.ca/calendarcontest and follow the online process. They will be guided through a series of steps to upload a photo, tell a heartwarming story about their pet and customize a contest webpage where other visitors can vote for their pet. Each vote costs $1, and visitors can vote as often as they like for their favourite animal.

”People can easily multiply their votes by asking friends and family members to vote for their pet, and they’re encouraged to promote their pet even further through social media avenues like Facebook and Twitter.” Once a pet goes viral, says Chortyk, there’s no limit to the number of votes that could be cast.

The 12 animals with the most votes at noon on April 19 will win a coveted spot in the calendar.

An additional 10 animals judged to have the most compelling stories and photos will each win a special BC SPCA goody bag with items from the Shop BC SPCA online store.

To register and for a complete list of rules and prizes, visit spca.bc.ca/calendarcontest.

 

The Animal Lovers’ Calendar is given as a gift to supporters every year, and will also be available for sale at branches and online in September.
