Perfect Pet 2014 Calendars Have Arrived!
Struggling to find the perfect gift for the pet lovers in your life? For just $5, make their year with a 2014 Picture Perfect Pet Calendar from the Central PA Humane Society! We have them available now at the CPHS Shelter and at upcoming events. All proceeds benefit the animals in our care at the Shelter in Greenwood.
That’s right, the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society’s annual Picture Perfect Pet 2014 Calendar Contest is complete! The contest features portraits of locally-owned pets whose family has done fundraising to have their pets featured in the calendar. Any pet owner is welcome to enter each year.
To participate, pet owners were encouraged to pick up information sheets and contest rules at the Central PA Humane Society Shelter located at 1837 East Pleasant Valley Blvd., Altoona, PA 16602, or click here. The contest requires entrants to either submit good quality digital photos or use a participating professional photographer. If using a participating photographer, the participants will receive two photos for $10. The photos can then be used for fundraising in support of their pet.
Thirteen pet owners who raised the most money will have their pet’s photo featured as a Pet of the Month in the calendar. All participants who raised at least $50 will have their pet photograph in the calendar. Advertising in the calendar was also available. Participants who purchase an ad had that money applied to their pet fundraising. This is a GREAT way to promote your family business while getting YOUR special pet a place in the calendar! Ad rates are on the information sheet link above.
Participants through the years have been very creative in raising money in support of their pet, and they have raised thousands of dollars to support CPHS. The money raised from this contest is used to help the 5,000 or so homeless animals that come through our shelter doors yearly.
The contest began Friday, March 1, 2013, and continued until July 1, 2013. The calendars will go on sale in September. To sign up your pet or for more information on the contest or advertising, contact Jill Reigh, Director of Outreach & Marketing at 942-2477 or email her at email@example.com.
