It’s that time of year again!

Call for entries - 2019 dog and cat calendar banner








For the last 6 years, we have created a Dog Calendar with photo submissions from our members, employees and community with all the proceeds benefitting Foothills Animal Shelter. We will be accepting photo submissions again this year from August 13th to September 10th. Don’t hesitate! Start taking pictures of your fur babies now.

We sent a survey out to members a few months ago asking if they would prefer to see another Dog Calendar or if they would be interested in a Dog and Cat Calendar. The cats have spoken and they want in! We received 868 responses with 285 for a Dog only calendar and 584 for a Dog and Cat calendar. For the first time in our Dog Calendar history, we will be accepting photos of just cats, no dog necessary! Wouldn’t it be cool for your cat to be featured in our calendar?
