The San Diego Humane Society opens its 30th annual photo fundraiser for the organization’s vital services, which include animal sheltering and adoptions.
Pet parents in the San Diego region are encouraged to submit their favorite pet photos at sdhumane. org/photocontest<http://www.sdhumane.org/photocontest, and encourage family and friends to vote on your pets pictures through the end of August.
Photo submissions and votes require a minimum tax-deductible donation to support animals and programs, such as investigations of animal cruelty and neglect, veterinary care, education programs for youth and adults, the rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife, and more.
“The Photo Fundraiser is one of our favorite campaigns, because it allows the community to support our lifesaving work, while also taking part in a friendly competition showcasing their favorite animals,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Philanthropy & Communications Officer Brian Daugherty. “We’re halfway to our goal of raising $110,000 to help us save more lives. We encourage everyone to enter their best pet photos and to get their family and friends to vote!”
Prizes include having your pet featured on a full month spread of San Diego Humane Society’s 2023 calendar, a professional photo shoot for your pet, tickets to the organization’s annual Fur Ball gala on Oct.1, 2022, and other special gifts. All photo entries with 5 votes or more are guaranteed inclusion in the calendar or on the collage pages.
