Think your very furry best friend has what it takes to be one of the final 12 for the 2020 Celebrity Pets of the Maine Coast Calendar?

The SPCA of Hancock County will be holding an online benefit photo contest beginning this Saturday, September 1st, at 10 a.m.  ENTER photos of your pet, and here's the stipulation, they must be enjoying the Maine coast, just like the example photo provided!  It's FREE to enter your photos.  Entries can be submitted until Saturday, October 13th at 6 p.m.

VOTE for your photo between September 1st and Sunday, October 14th at 9 p.m.  You'll have to make a $1 donation PER VOTE to the SPCA of Hancock County, Downeast Maine's non-profit no-kill animal shelter on the Bar Harbor Road in Trenton. The SPCA provides a safe haven and medical care  and finds new homes for hundreds of surrendered, abandoned and stray dogs and cats each year, so your VOTES are for a worthy cause!

Make sure to tell all your family and friends to vote for your pet's photo!

For more information you can call the Shelter at (207) 667-8088, or email River at
