Looking for a new best friend to brighten up your world? Please come out to see our adoptable animals. Hope to see you there!

We always need volunteers to help hold our adoptable animals. Let us know if you have some free time to help homeless animals find their forever homes.

2015 Greater Charlotte SPCA Calendar Contest

2015 Greater Charlotte SPCA Calendar Contest

We always LOVE to see GCSPCA alumni, but don't forgot that we love dogs in general, so ALL dogs, regardless of rescue are invited to enter!

Be creative! Cute, funny, inspirational, you choose! Pictures do not need to be professional, but those that show the most PERSONALITIES will win!

Sweet pics will pull some hearts, pet selfies will make people laugh.. You know the drill! We have some wonderful photographers that have offered to donate their time to make this look sleek and professional, so don't worry so much about your submission pics to look polished, just show your dogs personality! Rescue stories and a sweet "after" pic always does well too! It's completely up to you!

Votes will only be $1.00 each, and 100% of the proceeds will go to helping our wonderful rescue save more lives!

Prizes

  • The 12 entries with the most votes will be featured in our calendar and will each have their own dedicated month (ie. your furbaby will be famous!)
  • You will have the opportunity to share with everyone what your dog means to you, your favorite thing about them, or their rescue story (we can help you with this!). You will be inspiring people every day of your month!
  • All winners will receive a professional photo session and digital proofs of those images.
