Vote for the Cover Pet! Check out the Top 25 Pets & Vote Today!

It's time to pick your favorite photo to grace the cover of our 10th Annual Credit Union of Denver Pet Calendar for 2023!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who submitted images of their favorite furry friends! Once again this year, we were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and enthusiastic participation. The Calendar Committee has narrowed down the hundreds of photos we received to the top 25 finalists who scored the highest in meeting the qualifying criteria.

VOTE TODAY 
Voting is now open through end of day October 7th.

The top 14 voted pictures will grace the 13 months in the calendar and the 1 photo with the most votes will get the coveted cover and have unlimited bragging rights! Unfortunately, you will have to wait for the printed calendar to see who won and which pet will be on the different months!

However, due to the incredible response (over 400 photos), we will include a large Honorable Mentions section, so be sure to look out for your pet(s) in the printed calendar!

The calendars will be available for purchase in the beginning of November and will be $10 each. We will send out an email letting you know when the calendars have arrived. We are offering Free Shipping on each calendar purchased, so if you would like us to mail them to you, please call us at 303.239.1150 or 800.279.3288. All of the proceeds from the calendar sales will be donated to Foothills Animal Shelter.


The Why Behind the Annual Pet Calendar

Foothills Animal Shelter Check Presentation 2022Making a difference in the lives of our community and members who reside here with their furry friends is important to us. We believe that supporting Foothills Animal Shelter can have a direct impact on our community. When one of the pets at Foothills Animal Shelter finds a fur-ever home, we know that the act of bringing in an unconditional loving animal affects the human just as much as the animal! We like to ask…Who Rescued Who?

Our Annual Pet Calendar is a collaborative effort with our members and community. We ask our vendors to donate advertising dollars that help offset the cost of printing the calendar. So when you see an ad in the calendar, know they are supporting this paws-itively good cause and allows more of the proceeds to go to the shelter.

The pet photos are an outstanding way to share the joy that comes from owning a pet and helping to raise money for a great resource within our community. We thank everyone who has been gracious enough to submit their photos of their beloved furry friends.

Supporting Foothills Animal Shelter and creating this calendar is a labor of love for us. We look forward to seeing all of your new pics! Just remember, this is only successful when you purchase a calendar from us when they go on sale in November.


Here is a little information from The Foothills Animal Shelter website to understand why we do this every year.

About Foothills Animal Shelter

Foothills Animal Shelter LogoFoothills Animal Shelter is an open-admissions facility, which means we never turn away an animal. We care for more than 9,200 orphaned cats, kittens, dogs, puppies and critters every year with a compassionate team of staff and volunteers. (Unfortunately, we cannot accept wild animals; they should be taken to organizations that specialize in their care.) We are a true community resource and offer a variety of services including pet adoption, Jefferson County pet licensing, affordable spaying and neutering, vaccinations, micro chipping and lost and found pets. We are committed to our important mission and the life-saving work that we do every day of the year.

Credit Unions for Kids

We are proud to announce that we are supporting Credit Unions for Kids!

Credit Unions for Kids is the brand under which America's credit unions, including Credit Union of Denver, fundraise for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since Credit Unions are member-owned, not-for-profits, our main focus is our members and community. Credit unions are driven by the philosophy of "people helping people", and our support of CMN Hospitals is a great example of the ways credit unions give back and support their communities. In fact, since the creation of the CU4Kids brand in 1996, the credit union industry has raised $200 million for affiliated children's hospitals - over $13.6 million in 2019 alone! The credit union community has established a wonderful legacy at hospitals across the country, funding breakthrough research, numerous programs and services and construction of new facilities.
