This calendar photo contest is a great way to support the work of Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue as well as show you care as a Pyr owner. Enter your Pyr’s picture ($20 registration fee includes 5 votes to start your Pyr’s campaign) and then start campaigning for votes. Don’t forget to tell everyone – your family, friends and Social media followers – and then wait for the votes to roll in.

It’s such fun to say “look, my Pyr is in this calendar!”. Get ready to brag and enter your favorite photo of your Pyr(s) to win one of 12 coveted spots in our 2018 AGPR Calendar. The top vote earner will be on the cover of the calendar!

People can vote as often as they like and votes will be displayed on the contest web page as they come in. Remember – vote early, vote often, and encourage friends and families to vote. Our goal is to raise $8,000 to help AGPR continue their efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome wonderful Great Pyrenees dogs. Voting Ends 10/2/2017 at 10:00:00 PM Eastern Time
