NFSAW Sponsoring 2015 Calendar Contest 

Oct 02, 2014 03:48AM

The New Fairfield/Sherman Animal Welfare (NFSAW) is sponsoring a pet-themed 2015 calendar contest. The proceeds from entering a pet, the nominal voting fee, and sales from the calendars will help support the agency’s rescue efforts - as well as celebrate contestants’ dogs and cats. The contest is open to everyone; the photo entry does not have to be of a pet adopted from NFSAW. Voting will end on October 23 at 9pm.

Photos must be uploaded to the website, where electronic votes will determine if a pet’s photo will be featured in the calendar. The top-vote recipient will win placement as the calendar’s ‘cover’ photo – as well as a free copy of the calendar. The 12 top vote gatherers, in descending order, will be featured as a full-page pet of the month and receive a free copy of the calendar as well. The key to having a pet featured is to share an entry with friends, family, and contacts and encourage everyone to vote.

  The mission of the New Fairfield/Sherman Animal Welfare Society, Inc. is to offer refuge, medical care, and the opportunity for a second chance for life to needy dogs and cats; to protect animals from cruelty or neglect; to foster a public sentiment of humanity and gentleness toward all living creatures; to encourage and promote responsible pet ownership; and to reduce companion animal overpopulation through humane education and spay/neuter advocacy.

Location: NFSAW, 223 State Rt 37, New Fairfield. For more information or to enter your pet’s photo in the contest, visit
