That memory of the best hike you and your dog took together last summer. The snapshot of a shelter cat who touched your heart and soul. The happily-ever-after moment you captured on adoption day.

Pets bring a powerful connection to our lives and communities, and we want to honor that bond with a special contest! With your help, we can make a 2018 a year-long celebration of the simple yet life-changing beauty of pet adoption —featuring YOUR photos!

 

 

From 9/15 until 10/5, submit an image of your best friend(s), a shelter pet you’ve cared for, or an adopted or adoptable animal that’s touched your heart to our 2018 #AdoptLove calendar photo contest! The entry with the most votes at midnight on 10/5 will snag the coveted cover spot! The entries with the next highest vote totals will decorate the 12 months inside the calendar.

No matter how or where your image happened — professional portrait or an in-the-moment snap — we want to highlight the true love that blossoms from sharing life with pets! (Just make sure your image is clear, in focus, and a high enough resolution for us to print.)

Every vote in this contest costs $1 and that money goes to help HeARTs Speak deepen our impact on animals in need. By sharing your entry with friends, fans, supporters, and partner organizations, you’re in the running for getting your image featured in the 2018 HeARTs Speak calendar AND you’re raising funds to ensure that we can create a world where no shelter animal goes unseen.

Last year, all of HeARTs Speak’s programs combined helped to impact more than half a million animals worldwide. We have our sights set on how we can not only help millions more animals, but also hundreds of thousands of shelters and rescues to whom marketing resources, programs, and artist-partnership are critical to saving more lives. With your help and participation, this all becomes possible!

There will be opportunities for voters and participants to win prizes throughout the contest too, so share your entry far and wide, and let’s shine a light on the magic that’s possible when you #AdoptLove.

Visit our official contest page to learn more, enter, vote, and share!

 

 

This fundraising celebration is directly contributing to our ability to continue extending our programs to shelters and shelter animals all across the globe. Thank you for being our partner in creating a world where no shelter animal goes unseen!

Looking for other ways to help us reach our goals? Give here!
