Bandaged Paws holds second annual “Pose for Paws” calendar contest

Bandaged Paws Animal Rescue is hosting its second annual “Pose for Paws” contest to raise money for the shelter and give Grande Prairie pet owners the chance to feature their furry friends in Bandaged Paws’ 2024-25 calendar.

The contest began last year as a way to raise money for Bandaged Paws in a fun and engaging way. Bandaged Paws Executive Director Natasha Arsenault says with the success of last year’s campaign, the decision to return for another year was an easy one.

“It’s amazing for us, it’s a busy time of year for use and we’ve been running at capacity for a very long time at the moment so it’s really great to have this fun option for our supporters,” she says. “Last year we raised just over $13,000 so it was quite a surprise because we were thinking- oh maybe $2,000.”

Submissions are open for anyone at a $5 donation, and all of the money raised, including calendar purchases, will go directly to the shelter’s animals. Pets are selected through a public voting system across two categories- dogs and cats/critters, with the top six in each of the two categories will be featured in the calendar.

“The most important part of getting votes is to share them among your friends and family that love your pet just as much as you do,” Arsenault says.

The contest comes to a close on April 25th and the top-voted pet overall will be featured on the calendar’s front cover. Interested individuals can submit a photo or vote online through the Bandaged Paws website.
