This year’s voting will take place on both the Walkin’ Pets website and the Walkin’ Pets Facebook page. 1 “like” will count as one vote per photo in the voting album on Facebook. For example, if a photo has 359 likes, that will count as 359 votes. On the website, you may vote once per photo. The total likes on each photo on the website, plus the total amount of likes in the album on Facebook, will equal the final voting count per pet. The top 12 pets with most combined votes, will earn a monthly spot in the calendar.
To give you even more of an opportunity to vote for your favorite pets, this year’s contest will feature three rounds of voting:
First Round Voting: will run from 8/2/22 through 8/12/22
Second Round Voting: Top 100 photos from Round 1, voting will run from 8/15/22 through 9/2/22
Third Round Voting: Top 50 photos from Round 2, voting will run from 9/5/22 through 9/15/22
Our 12 Calendar Contest Winners (one for each month) will be contacted by email in September and announced on the Walkin’ Pets website and social media platforms. Our Calendar Cover Winner will be selected by the Walkin’ Pets team based on several factors, including number of votes, quality of photo, and pet’s biography.
Two additional honors will be awarded . . . The Walkin’ Pets team will select a rescue to be named “Rescue of the Year” and select the 2022 Walkin’ Pets “Hero” honoree. These special award recipients are selected for the dedication, advocacy, and care they provide handicapable pets throughout the year. A press release will be sent to newspapers and TV stations in each winner’s state of country with the winning photo and story about the pet.
Walkin’ Pets believes every pet is a miracle and will try to include all pets who are entered in this year’s calendar and will be celebrating your pets all year! We will feature your pets and their incredible stories all year across our website and social media!
All profits from calendar sales will be donated to the Handicapped Pets Foundation.
