Independent Animal Rescue’s mission is to rescue and care for cats and dogs in need through adoption, spay/neuter, and community education.


2022 Pet Photo Contest

Would you like to see YOUR pet in Independent Animal Rescue’s 2023 calendar?

Of course you do! Get you camera or phone out and snap a shot of your furry friend and enter it in IAR’s 2022 Pet Photo Contest for a chance to win a full-page feature in our upcoming 2023 calendar.

Entering the contest is easy! Submit a photo of your pet, along with a $5 entry fee, and tell us a little about your pet—for example, how they came into your life or what they love to do when they aren’t posing for the camera.

Then let the voting begin! Each vote costs only $1 and anyone can vote as many times as they want. Encourage your family, friends and colleagues to go online right away and vote for your pet!

The contest is open for all companion cats and dogs– they do not need to be from IAR.

The contest begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 3, and ends at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 17. Voting opens when the contest begins and will remain open through 10 p.m. on Friday, June 17.  Don’t delay– send in a photo of your adorable pet and start casting your votes!

Every dollar raised from this pet photo contest and subsequent calendar sales will be used to help dogs and cats in need – providing foster and veterinary care, spay/neuter procedures, and adoption services. Help make a difference for the animals by entering and voting today, it’s easy and fun!
