All Aboard Animal Rescue, in partnership with Furbaby Photography, is happy to announce it's first ever pet calendar for 2025. Proceeds from the sale of the calendar and photo contest will assist All Aboard Animal Rescue in their mission to enhance the quality of life for both pets and people through the process of matching adoptable animals with their forever homes. 

 

We encourage you to submit your favorite photo of your pets and ask your family and friends to vote for them. Please review the Contest Rules carefully for submission guidelines; those that do not follow these rules will not be eligible to win. Fees for photo entries and votes will help All Aboard Animal Rescue continue their efforts with reducing the number of animals unjustly euthanized at kill shelters in the US.

 

Grand Prize:

  • The winners of the photo contest will be determined by the top 13 entrants that get the most votes.

  • The top winner will win the coveted cover photo for the 2025 calendar! 2nd - 13th place winners will have their pet featured as a pet of the month. 

  • The top 13 vote getters will have their pet professionally photographed by Professional Pet Photographer Shay Riccio of Furbaby Photography for the 2025 calendar.

  • All winners will have the opportunity to purchase products and images following their session, if desired.

Reserve a Special Spot In The Calendar For Your Pet:

  • Each grid space is just $15.

Contest Rules:

  • Only 1 pet can be entered at a time. Multiple pets are not allowed to be entered together. 

  • If your pet is one of the 13 to be photographed for the calendar, you must be able to bring your pet to meet Shay Riccio of Furbaby Photography at a pre-selected location in Loveland/Fort Collins area during during the Summer of 2024 for a professional on-location photo session.

  • If you are unable to commit to a photo session during those times or find yourself unable to travel to these pre-selected locations, you forfeit your winning and the next top vote getter will take your pet's spot in the calendar, no exceptions.

Weekly Mini-Contest Prizes:

  • One pet each week who receives the highest number of new votes for a particular week will win a mini-contest prize from one of the participating businesses.

  • In the event of a tie for that week's most votes or if there are no new votes for that week, a random computerized drawing will be held for all eligible pets.

 

FAQ

HOW IS THE MONEY RAISED AND USED?

All proceeds from contest entries and votes along with subsequent calendar sales directly support All Aboard Animal Rescue with rescuing and re-homing dogs and cats in Fort Collins and the surrounding areas. 

 

DOES MY PET NEED TO BE A RESCUE TO BE ENTERED?

Because we are raising money for a rescue-focused organization, most entries are from rescues; however, all breeds are welcomed and encouraged to enter! We encourage you to submit your favorite photo of your pets and ask your family and friends to vote for them. And while we love a good rescue story, we would love dogs from a variety of backgrounds to enter!

CAN I ENTER MORE THAN ONE PET?

Yes, but there is a limit of 1 pet per photo entry, if you wish to enter more than one pet, they would all need their separate submission. People are not allowed in photos, only pets.
