Celebrate your favorite pets with our photo contests!

Every month the SPCA of Hancock County hosts a monthly themed photo contest! These photo contests are a fun opportunity to share favorite pictures with family and friends and also to become a part of official SPCA history. The pet photos with the most votes at the end of each month win the contest and will become an official page in the 2023 SPCA calendar.

How it works:

The community is welcome to submit their favorite pet photos each month through social media posts, facebook messenger, or by emailing development@spcahancockcounty.org. Entry is completely free. Once the SPCA receives your photo of choice, you will receive a customized form link that features your beloved pet and will allow your friends and family to vote! 

The pet photo with the most votes at the end of the month wins the contest! 

A Message from the Shelter:

 ALL proceeds will go towards the care, shelter, and placement of cats and dogs across Hancock County. We are a shelter run by the community and could never do this work without you, so we hope you enjoy this way of saving lives and making a difference while celebrating your furry friends! By sharing your pet’s photo form with family and friends, you are encouraging them to help your favorite furry friend to win . . . plus that dollar goes a long way toward helping an animal in need! Win -Win!

We hope you enjoy these contests and look forward to seeing all your fun entries.
