Our eighth annual Christmas Pet Photo Contest on Facebook begins December 7, 2020 and runs through December 23,2020.
** Submit your entries for the Christmas Pet Photo Contest through our Facebook page**
Humane societies/animal sanctuaries throughout the state of Maine will be earning the proceeds.
Here’s how the photo contest works:
First, an individual submits a photo entry, and they designate the shelter of their choice to receive $1.00.
Then, the shelter will receive $1.00 for every entry on its behalf.
If a shelter has more than 25 entries on their behalf, they will receive $2.00 for each entry from #26 on.
Therefore, the greater the number of entries, the more we will donate.
The photo with the most likes will win an additional $100 for the selected shelter.
We exclude winning pets of our previous Pet Photo Contests from winning, to give others a chance. We will still donate for the entry of previous winners.
All shelters will receive a $1.00 donation for each entry on their behalf regardless of which photo wins.
Bonus incentive for this year: We anticipate reaching 12,000 likes on our Facebook page! When we reach that milestone, we will draw a name from the entries that have been received up until that moment, and will donate an extra $100 to that shelter!
