Thank you to all who participated! 


If you love taking and sharing photos of your pet(s), get ready, the Humane Society of Parkersburg’s 2017 Pet Photo Contest begins July 26!


Submit your favorite pet photo(s) for a chance to win a spot in the 2018 HSOP calendar.  Click here to enter our Contest Site, register via the Sign In button in the upper right hand corner, and now you're ready to submit your contest photos beginning at noon July 26th until contest conclusion on September 15th.  Entry fee of $5 per photo.

The pet photo receiving the most votes will earn the coveted calendar cover spot and also be featured on the month of winner’s choice.  The next eleven top vote receivers will be featured on the other months of the calendar.

You can get involved by voting for your favorites photos ($5 for 5 votes) and since there is no limit to the number or frequency of votes. You can vote again and again!  Click the link to contest site and then the View Entries button and vote for your favorites!


You can also honor a pet by reserving a date block for their photo. Go to contest site, scroll down the page to the section for Reserve Your Space and follow the instructions to submit a favorite photo and a date, and donate $15.  Your picture will appear in that date block, if available but does not enter photo into the contest. Dates are first come, first served - so reserve your special date early!


Pre-order your calendar! 2018 HSOP calendars may be pre-ordered from the photo contest site by visiting the contest site and scroll down to Calendar Pre-order at the bottom of the page. Calendars are $15 plus $3 for shipping and handling.  Pre-orders are appreciated since they allow us to order appropriate quantities and save money.

All proceeds from the photo contest will go towards our PAWS (Protection, Adoptions, Wellness, and Safety) Project.  The focus of the project is to fund the much needed renovation and expansion to our shelter.  This will not only promote the health and adoption of our animals but create a safer environment for employees, volunteers, and the public.


Thank you for supporting the Humane Society of Parkersburg - your donations make all that we do possible.


Adopt. Donate. Foster. Save Lives.
