Calling All Photogenic Pets for Contest

By City News Service

Pasadena Humane is about to begin a search for pet models to appear in its 2025 calendar as part of an annual contest, the shelter said.
Animal owners are encouraged to submit their pets’ best photo for the contest, which opens for submissions on Saturday.
“Our annual calendar contest is one of favorite fundraisers,” said Dia DuVernet, president and chief executive officer of Pasadena Humane. “There are so many adorable pets and amazing photos. The best part is that it all benefits the pets in our care.”
Twelve pets will be selected for the calendar; the winners will be decided by popular vote, shelter officials said. Last year’s contest generated 192 entries and the top vote-getter, a cat named Federer, received more than 7,000 votes.
The 2025 calendar is sponsored by Petco Love, a national nonprofit dedicated to animal welfare.
“Our investment in Pasadena Humane is part of more than $15 (million) in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” Petco Love President Susanne Kogut said. “Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
The calendar photo contest will be open for submissions and voting from Saturday through June 30. There is a $25 entry fee for each photo, and members of the public can cast votes for $1 per vote, according to the shelter.
Pet owners can enter their photos and vote online at pasadenahumane.org/25calendar.
