Calling all dogels (that’s dog model)—the time has come to strike a pose for a good cause

Posted on

Do you love dogs? Do you love raising money for furry friends in need?

Well don’t go barking up the wrong tree—Ina J Photography has launched her 2022 Canberra Paws calendar contest.

You may have seen Ina’s calendar contest circulating last year, raising nearly $11,000 for ACT Pet Crisis Support. This year, she hopes to donate a whopping $15,000.

ACT Pet Crisis Support aims to help disadvantaged pet owners keep their pets healthy by contributing towards medical bills that would otherwise result in euthanasia. By supporting low-income families and giving beloved pets the veterinary care they deserve, they are saving lives and keeping families together.

How can you help?

The Canberra Paws 2022 calendar contest is happening now and will be running until 25 April 2021 with the top 13 pooches as voted by Canberra getting their time in the spotlight. The dog voted number 1 will score prime position on the front page, with the next 12 winners featured as dog of the month for each month in the calendar.

The winners will win an on-location professional pet photography session with Ina J Photography and receive a social media sized image of their chosen calendar photo.

Entry is simple

  1. Upload a photo of your dog on the GoGo Photo Contest page. The entry fee is $5 and will be donated to ACT Pet Crisis Support.
  2. Limit of TWO dogs per photo entry. Please note only dogs should be in the image entered.
  3. Share your entry and get family and friends to vote! Voting is $1 per vote, with the money going to ACT Pet Crisis Support.

While there’s an abundance of camera-ready pups in the Canberra region, Ina knows there are only so many months in the year. That’s why she’ll be giving out some paw-some prizes weekly to the dog with the highest number of new votes, thanks to generous donations from partners Pups4Fun, Bark Royal Dog Day Spa and Day Care, Mannekes toys, Charlie and Chums, Dagget Designs, Floppy Duck Art and Louie Loves ‘em.

So, what are you waiting for?

Brush their luscious locks, charge those cameras and snap a gorgeous shot of your best friend so ACT Pet Crisis Support can continue helping other’s furry friends!
