2024 Pin Up Paws Calendar Contest

The St. Augustine Humane Society Annual Contest for the 2024 Pin Up Paws Calendar begins at 8:00am on June 1, 2023.  The “Best Buds” calendar will showcase the winning pets in a flower garden setting.

Submit a photo of your pet and start rooting for votes, each vote worth $1.00. The Pet with the most votes becomes the cover pet for the 2024 Best Buds calendar. The next twelve pets with the next highest amount of votes will be a monthly pin up pet.  All first and second place winners will receive professional photography sessions, along with gift certificates from Columbia Restaurant.  The top 80 pet contestants will have their submitted photos included in a calendar collage.

Please Note:  All contestants must be entered in the competition by 8:00pm on August 10, 2023. The deadline to submit all votes online is August 12, 2023 at 8:00pm.

Winners will receive a professional photo shoot with world renowned photographer, Addison Fitzgerald. Fine artist and graphic designer, Maribel Angel, will then create a stunning design that showcases your Best Bud in the midst of blooming flowers.

The 2024 calendar will be revealed at the Pin Up Paws Party on Friday, November 3, 2023 at Embassy Suites by Hilton.  Calendars will be available for $12.00 each starting in November with purchase available online, by phone, or at the Humane Society.
