Calendar contest deadline May 31

MARQUETTE — The deadline is fast approaching to get a photo entered for the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter’s 2019 Pet Photo Calendar Contest.

Send in a picture of the pet by May 31 ($12 per entry) and it will be entered for a chance to win one of the top spots in the calendar for next year. High quality photos only.

Pictures may be submitted by downloading the application at or by picking up an application at the UPAWS booth at the Westwood Mall in Marquette.

All the beautiful pet pictures will be featured on UPAWS website and on voting posters during voting in July. Votes are only 25 cents each. First place will be featured on the UPAWS calendar cover (also on a full page) and the next 11 place winners will also receive a full page on the other months. All the submitted pictures will appear in other places in the calendar.

Once the voting is completed UPAWS will put the calendar together and it will be for sale during the holidays. This is a fundraiser to help support UPAWS shelter operations.
