PET CALENDAR CONTEST

BENEFITING THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF MORGAN COUNTY MADISON, GA

Is your dog the next Miss September?

    Ready to save some animals?!

    The Humane Society of Morgan County, in partnership with CM Bryson, is happy to announce its pet calendar for 2023.

    Proceeds from the sale of the calendar and photo contest will assist HSMC with the more than 400 cats & dogs we care for every year. 

    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 the HSMC  to save more animals’ lives by promoting adoptions of healthy, friendly companion animals obtained from overcrowded animal control facilities and owner surrenders.  

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

    The top 13 vote getters will have their pet professionally photographed by CM Bryson for the 2023 calendar.

     

    Smiles all around for fundraising for Madison, Georgia's Humane Society of Morgan County.

    arf!

    Since moving into our adoption center in 2014, the HSMC rescues more than 400 animals every year!
