Hope Animal Rescue is a completely volunteer-run non-profit organization committed to saving the lives of stray and abandoned dogs in North Carolina. We give HOPE to the ones that need it most and we have a heart for the sick, elderly, and those discriminated against due to breed.

This is a BIG year end fundraiser for HAR, and a fun way to get the community involved in raising money for a very impawtant cause! All proceeds from the calendar contest go directly to providing care and covering medical expenses for the dogs of Hope Animal Rescue. Last year we raised over $9,800 and our goal this year is to cross the $10,000 mark – can you help make that happen?! Consider entering your pet for a chance to be in our 2021 HAR Calendar, and encouraging people to vote!

How it works:

  1. Enter a high-resolution photo of your pet, along with an entry fee of $5. (1440px x 1800px or 2mb. If you win a spot in the calendar but your photo is not high-resolution, we will ask for a replacement photo, or else choose the next place entry).
  2. Vote! Each vote costs $1 and there is no limit to how many votes you can purchase. Each vote is a donation to HAR (10 votes = $10 donation) and goes directly to saving homeless animals. There’s also special “discount bundles” like 25 votes for $20 that may pop up every so often!
  3. SHARE SHARE SHARE this contest! Tell everyone to vote, share the contest URL, and ask your family/friends to vote for your pet!

Voting starts on the morning of November 3rd and will end on November 11th at 9:59 PM EST.

The top 11 photos will be featured in our 2021 calendar, and the photo with the most votes will appear on the cover of the calendar! The 12th/final spot will be filled a slightly different way – we’ll be announcing the details for the last spot right after this photo contest ends!

Calendars will be available for pre-order shortly after the contest ends and will tentatively be available for local pick-up or to be shipped in early December. They make great gifts, so consider ordering a few!
