Calendar Contest

Don’t miss the chance for your furry, scaly, or feathered friend to be featured in the 2025 Cleveland Animal Protective League pet calendar.
Your pet could be a star!

The Cleveland Animal Protective League Pet Calendar is an incredible way to show off our area’s much-loved pets! Click here to enter online or click the link below to download our form to mail in your submission.

The entry fee is $35 per picture, and your pet’s picture is guaranteed to be included on the pages of the Cleveland APL’s 2025 calendar. The entry fee also includes a copy of our full-color calendar, which will be mailed to you in November!

Check the rules below before submitting your images!

The Rules:

1. Photos must be of pets only – no people (or parts of people), please!

2. You may submit your photo(s) electronically or by mailing a 4×6 horizontally-formatted photograph to our regular mailing address.

3. Digital photos are preferred. Cell phone photos are accepted if saved at the highest resolution possible. Polaroid, copyrighted professional photographs, or photos taken in a studio are not acceptable. Photos with text or with social-media filters or frames will not be accepted. We cannot return physical photographs which are mailed.

4. Please do not stamp or write on the back of the photo. For digital photos, please provide sharp images (highest resolution) that are 300 dpi at a 5×7 format or larger and in JPEG (JPG) or TIFF format. Digital photos must be at least 3,000 pixels horizontal to be eligible to compete for a “Pet of the Month” spot. Please name the digital files by the pet’s first and last name, i.e. “Fido Jones.jpg.” Photos that don’t meet pixel or dpi requirements will still be featured, but will not be eligible for a “Pet of the Month” spot or thumbnail.

5. All entries will be blind-judged by the Cleveland APL’s panel of local celebrities and the top 12 will be featured as “Pets of the Month.”
