It is once again pet calendar time at the Chester County Independent, when the community decides which pet is the cutest. Vote for your favorites, and the top 12 pets will be featured in the 2022 Tails of Chester County calendar. The grand prize winner will also receive a gift basket with items for both pet and owner.
The contest is not just limited to furry pets – cats, dogs, hamsters, goldfish, lizards, birds, snakes, goats and other pets are all welcome to enter the competition.
The best thing about this contest is not fame and prizes; proceeds benefit local animal rescues.
“We always look forward to this pet calendar contest each year because it’s a great way to help raise money for our local rescues,” said Independent publisher Scott Whaley. “A portion of the proceeds from the contest will be split between the City of Henderson Animal Control, Loving Paws and Funny Farm Rescue Ranch. We’re so excited to be able to partner with these organizations and give back.”
Voting begins today, Thursday, Dec. 1, and continues through Dec. 22. Pets can be entered in the contest and also voted for at gogophotocontest.com/chestercountyindependent. Each photo entry costs $10. Votes are $1 each.
Winners will be announced in the Independent in early January. Calendars featuring the winners will be available at the paper office for $7.50.
“Don’t wait – three weeks go by very quickly, and we wouldn’t want you to miss your chance to pick our county’s cutest pet,” Whaley added.
