The Animal Welfare Society, Inc. in New Milford is holding its 2016 pet calendar photo contest.

To enter the contest, residents must reserve as spot for either the June 6 at Lover’s Leap State Park or June 14 at AWS, 8 Dodd Road.

The contest is open to all types of pets, not just dogs and cats.

Each pet’s photo session costs a $25 fee, which will benefit the shelter.

All pets entered will be included in the calendar, and the top 14 pets with the most votes will be the featured pets.

Voting will be held July 15-31, and each vote costs $1.

Calendars will be available for sale in the fall.
