New Fairfield/Sherman Animal Welfare holding pet pin-up photo calendar contest

New Fairfield/Sherman Animal Welfare is holding a 2022 pin-up photo calendar contest to raise funds for the abandoned, neglected and abused dogs and cats the organization rescues, and to celebrate contestants’ pets.

Each of the next 12 top vote getters will be featured as a full-page pet of the month. The second-place recipient will receive a $100 Tractor Supply gift card and the third-place recipient will receive a pet gift basket valued at $75. All winners will receive a free copy of the calendar.

The cost to enter the contest is $10 and each vote costs $1.
