The City of Carrollton extends its gratitude to everyone who submitted photos of their pets for entry into the 2016, 2017, and 2018 Carrollton Pet Photo Contest.

Citizen response to the photo contests have been overwhelmingly positive as nearly $9,000 has been raised from photo submissions, sponsorships, and calendar sales. All proceeds go directly to the Carrollton Animal Services & Adoption Center for resources such as food, medicine, cleaning supplies, and treatment of sick or injured animals.

The contests runs from March to August and sees hundreds of photo submissions from local pet lovers.

In 2016, Bart and Ardith Terrell and their two Pomeranians Cookie and Nala won the Grand Prize calendar cover. See some shots from their prize photo session with Kim Ortiz Photography. In 2017, Amber Lopez and her Husky Akira won the Grand Prize cover. In 2018, our cover dog was smiley-faced Prince, a Jack Russell terrier, pit bull Terrier, and beagle mix belonging to Leah Shaw. And our reigning 2019 cover winner is 5-month-old beagle puppy Zelda, owned by the Saleh family.

As an additional way of showing our gratitude, we include several honorable mentions in the back pages of the calendar! We thank everyone for their enthusiasm and support of Carrollton Animal Services through this contest.
