AMHERST, NH (July 1, 2021) – The submission period for the 2022 Walkin’ Pets Calendar Contest is open now through August 20, 2021.
The annual pet calendar contest, hosted by WalkinPets.com, celebrates special needs dogs, cats, and other animals enjoying life with the help of their Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair. Each year, submissions come in from all over the world from pet owners vying for a winning position in the calendar, helping to raise awareness for special needs pets and highlight their incredible spirit
The 2021 Walkin’ Pets calendar contest received a record amount of submissions with photos featuring pets from 27 different countries and 35 U.S. states! Calendar submissions went far beyond dogs. Last year’s contestants included goats, sheep, cats, ducks, and even a chicken all walking proudly in their Walkin’ Wheels! Proceeds from sale of the calendar benefit the Handicapped Pets Foundation, which donates wheelchairs to pets in need.
There is no entry free to enter the calendar contest. All entrants will be included in a photo gallery on our Facebook page for public voting starting on August 23, 2021. The 2021 Calendar Contest will feature three rounds of voting, with the top finalists from each round moving on in the competition:
First Round Voting: will run from 8/23 through 9/3
Second Round Voting: Top 100 photos from Round 1, voting will run from 9/6 through 9/17
Third Round Voting: Top 50 photos from Round 2, voting will run from 9/20 through 10/1
The 12 entrants with the most “likes” will be notified at the beginning of October. An additional Calendar Contest Winners will be selected by Walkin’ Pets to be specially featured on the 2022 Calendar Cover. For the third year in a row Walkin’ Pets will also select an individual to be named Walkin’ Pets Hero of the Year and Rescue of the Year. These awards are presented to an individual and animal rescue who dedicate their lives to advocate and dedicate themselves to the care of handicapable pets.
Walkin’ Pets believes that every pet is a miracle and will try to include every pet in this year’s calendar. Walkin’ Pets will also be celebrating these incredible pets all year! Featuring photos of submitted pets and their incredible stories throughout 2021 online and on social media!
