AWLA Calendar Contest

June 1 @ 8:00 am - June 30 @ 12:00 pm


It’s Time For Your Pet To Strike A Pose!

Welcome to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington’s Calendar Contest Fundraiser! This is your chance to make your pet a local celebrity, with their photo on the cover of our 2020/2021 calendar (yep, that’s right, this year we’re printing a 16-month calendar)!

Each photo entry and vote equals life-saving funds that care for animals in need. From tiny kittens, senior pups, injured wildlife, pet parents in need, and everything in between, your support guides us on our mission to improve the lives of pets and people in Arlington County.

So what are you waiting for? We KNOW you have adorable photos of your pet on your phone – and if you don’t it’s time to start snapping! May the cutest pet win! ENTER HERE!

This time around we will be printing a 16-month 2020/21 calendar!
In order to continue practicing social distancing, ALL calendars will be shipped directly to anyone who enters the contest or purchases a calendar. All orders must be placed by June 30th in order to have a calendar(s) shipped to you.
