EASTON — The Mid-Shore’s original pet photo contest is back. Talbot Humane’s second annual photo calendar contest “Petparazzi” offers pet lovers the opportunity to enter their dogs, cats or other small companion animals in a photo competition while raising funds for the shelter’s animal care and community outreach services.
Participants may enter their pets online until the contest ends on July 31. Entrants promote their pet by email and social media, urging their family, friends and co-workers to vote for their pet on the contest website. One dollar equals one vote.
Each of the top six dogs, five cats, and top two “other” animals who receive the most votes in their respective categories at the end of the contest will be featured as a Pet of the Month in the 2021 Talbot Humane Petparazzi Calendar. The pet who raises the most funds overall in the voting also will appear on the cover of the calendar.
The entry fee of $25 is considered a tax-deductible donation to Talbot Humane and includes a copy of the 2021 calendar with each entry, a $15 value. Pets entered in the contest are not limited to Talbot Humane alumni, or even to Talbot County; all pets are welcome.
In its inaugural year, the Petparazzi 2020 calendar contest raised over $20,000 in support of Talbot Humane. The shelter’s fundraising goal for the 2021 Talbot Humane Petparazzi Calendar contest is to match or exceed the success of 2020. All funds raised will be used to help animals in need in our community.
