Is there an animal who brings you hope and joy? Celebrate your pet by winning a spot for them in the BC SPCA’s 2021 Calendar.
“During a worldwide pandemic, there is so much uncertainty it can feel overwhelming,” says Tess Repenning, senior manger of digital giving for the BC SPCA. “Our animals bring us so much comfort and laughter during these difficult times, and our annual calendar contest is a way to not only celebrate your pet but to help raise urgently needed funds for homeless, abused and injured animals who desperately need our care.”
Last year, the BC SPCA helped nearly 42,000 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 information 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 April 30, 2020 will win a spot in the 2021 BC SPCA Calendar.
“This is something people can do entirely from home,” says Repenning. “By sharing a great photo of their pet they’ll also be putting a smile on the faces of their family and friends, all for a great cause.”
