This year Panhandle’s Next Pet Model contest is supporting Rescue Me WV Eastern Panhandle Shelter Dogs. If this non-profit gets involved, the pups time to find a proper home or be partnered with a rescue is running short. You can help by volunteering, sharing posts, or opening your heart/home to adopting or fostering! There is a little something everyone can do. This non-profit is not a shelter or affiliated with a shelter. They help place at-risk shelter dogs with necessary resources to find loving homes.

Pre-Order a Calendar for $15 [proceeds go to the non-profit]

[[Pre-order by August 31st, 2022. Calendars can still be ordered after date for $20.]]


These businesses donate their time and services to provide amazing prizes for the finalists of our pet contest each and every year. We thank them for all of their help in the community, as well as their efforts in raising funds for our featured non-profit. It would not be possible without these businesses. Please take the time to follow them on social media and support their business.

EVERY YEAR, January through, March, we photograph 50+ pets to be entered to win some seriously cool prizes from local businesses! All participants are entered into the contest where voting takes place a few weeks later, via Facebook. The best part? Each pet receives a complimentary portrait session (valued at $650+) that includes a digital image of their choice. The best, BEST part? We are raising hundreds and hundreds of dollars every year for our featured non-profit by including the Top 12 pets, as voted by YOU on Facebook, in a calendar where full proceeds go to the non-profit. How cool is that?!?! We are so excited for the 2022 Panhandle’s Next Pet Model contest!

PS. Every year, Erica (me, hehe) gets to select one pet (and their family) to enjoy a year-long complimentary modeling contract!

PS. PS. Every year we have a new theme. This year's theme? BUBBLES.


We will get you all set up! We have several dates set between January and March. You will be able to select the best date and time for you and your pet. The calendar lists dates for pets who can travel to Clearbrook Park. If your pet is unable to travel (small pets, livestock, etc) please reach out to us via email at to schedule an individual date. We are happy to accommodate your pet. 

After scheduling, your pet will be photographed! You will then have the opportunity to select which pose you’d like to be used in the contest, as well as have the opportunity to purchase additional images (no purchase is required - the session includes one complimentary portrait).

You will be notified when voting is LIVE so that you can share and advocate for your pet in the contest!

Calendars are available for pre-order by August 31st, at $15 per calendar. Full proceeds go to our featured non-profit.
Following that date, calendars will be available for purchase at $20.

Winners and finalists will be announced on our social media and via email, shortly following the end of the voting period.
