PawPrints Calendar
Your pet could be a star in our
2022 Pawprints Pet Photo Calendar!


The PawPrints calendar is one of the Peoria Humane Society's annual fundraising projects.  It's compiled of beloved pet pictures submitted by proud pet owners.  Wouldn't you love to see your pet's photo featured on a page of our next calendar!


There are 12 first-place winners, each of which is featured with a large photo on one of the monthly calendar pages. The 12 first-place winners will receive a complimentary calendar and have their pictures also published on our website.  12-second place and 12 third-place winners will be chosen and represented with a smaller picture on one of the monthly pages, and all other runner-up photos will be placed throughout the calendar.  Every photo submitted to the contest will be placed somewhere in the calendar.* 


Photos may be submitted now through September 4, 2021.  For each photo submitted, please make a separate $10 donation.  Simply click on the CALENDAR CONTEST button below to enter and follow the 2-step process to submit your photo. You can also pre-order the 2022 Calendar on the photo contest form below.  Calendars are $7 each (includes $2 postage).
