New HSFN Alumni Calendar and Photo Contest
We’re thrilled to announce our first ever Calendar for 2016 featuring photos of dogs, cats, birds rabbits, any animal that was adopted from the Humane Society for Greater Nashua (HSFN)! The first step is selecting the pets to be featured and to do that we’re hosting a photo contest on line! The top 12 vote getters will be showcased in our 2016 calendar. The contest starts on March 1, 2015 and ends on April 30, 2015.
So how will this work?
We encourage you, our friends and adopters, to spread the word and then submit your favorite photo of your HSFN alumni pet to our on-line photo contest and share what makes your pet special or why you adopted them. Then share the link with your family, friends, and social networks and encourage them to go on-line and vote for your pet. The top 12 vote getting pets will be photographed professionally at no charge, either in studio or at the pet owner’s home, for the photo to be showcased in the 2016 calendar.
How will this benefit HSFN?
There is a $20 fee to enter a photo into the on-line contest and a $1 fee per vote. The proceeds from the on-line contest and from the sale of the printed calendar will benefit our pets awaiting adoption. The 2016 HSFN Alumni calendar will be available for sale on September 1, 2015. Information about purchasing calendars will be made available on www.hsfn.org and through HSFN’s social media pages.
