Have you heard about our calendar photo contest? Want to see your Pyr on the cover or as one of the  “Pyr of the month” celebs?  The calendar photo contest is our biggest exciting fundraiser of the year.  Such a fun way to claim bragging rights for your most photogenic/ beautiful/handsome/amazing/wonderful/mischievous Pyr in the whole world. Be creative with your photos and get that campaign plan ready (family, friends, co-workers, social media contacts, people who owe you favors, Zoom meeting buddies) to encourage those $1 votes to roll in for your Pyr and to benefit the Pyrs at AGPR who have not found their forever home…yet.

There are a few ways to participate in this fundraising contest:

  1. Visit the website – register and enter a good quality photo of your Pyr for $20. You will automatically get 5 free votes for your Pyr to get you started. Then it is up to you to work your magic and contact list and rack up those votes for your wonderful Pyr.
  2. Visit the website – buy votes. They are $1 per vote and can be voted for any Pyr in the contest. Buy a block and vote them all on one Pyr or share them among your favorites.
  3. Visit the website – buy a Date Block. Select a specific date that has special meaning to you (i.e. birthday, holiday, anniversary, Pyr adoption date, first kiss) and submit a photo for that block. These Date Blocks are first come, first served and are $15 each.
  4. Buy an ad for your business. Contact us at for more information.
  5. Purchase hundreds (ok – dozens?) of 2022 calendars to give as holiday gifts. The calendars are $25 each and includes shipping to your home (after Thanksgiving).  You can order by contacting us at (we’ll send you info for mailing a check so we can avoid the payment system fees) or pre-order on the website:

Remember – all profits help care for the wonderful Pyrs here at Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue. Enter early and vote often and let’s make this the best year ever! Give your Pyrs a big hug from us at AGPR. Thank you so much for your continued support!

P.S. Keep your eyes open on email, Facebook and Twitter for more information and an occasional vote sale or two!
