A new contest sponsored by The Chester County Independent will crown a winner and a 2121 calendar will feature the pet with the most votes.
The contest is not just limited to furry pets – cats, dogs, hamsters, goldfish, lizards, birds, snakes and other pets are welcomed to be entered into the competition. Owners may submit photos of their pets and voters determine who will win. The 12 pets with the most votes will be featured in the 2021 calendar.
The grand prize winner will also receive a “Pamper Me” gift basket with various items included for a pet and pet owner.
“We’re looking forward to this pet calendar contest because it’s a great way to help raise money for our local animal rescues,” said Independent publisher Scott Whaley. “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.”
Here is how it works: Each photo entry costs $10. Entries began being accepted on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 4 p.m. and voting began the same day. Voting will close on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Each vote is $1.
Winners will be announced in the Jan. 7 print edition of The Independent.
Calendars featuring the winners will be distributed free in subscribers’ copies, and will also be available at The Independent for $5.
“Don’t wait – four weeks go by very quickly and we wouldn’t want you to miss your chance to pick our county’s cutest pet,” Whaley added.
Official rules and contest information will be posted at chestercountyindependent.com on Wednesday.
