hsp 2018 pet calendar

It's calendar time again! With 2018 here before we know it, secure a spot for your pet in the HSP 2018 Pet Calendar! Entering your pet's photo is easy - just register him or her here - and have your friends vote to see your pet featured! All proceeds help homeless pets, so who says it doesn't pay to be famous! All pet owners will receive one free calendar for every $100 raised. 

Each year, HSP, with the support of Rebecca Brittain Photography, showcases Pinellas County pets in our annual calendar! While all contestants get a small spot in the calendar, community members can vote for their top 12 favorites which are then featured each month and on the calendar cover. 

2017 Calendars are still available for purchase in our Adoption Center. You can also contact our Director of Community Relations, Twila Cole, at or (727) 797-7722 ext. 222.
