The Norfolk Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals invites you to vote for your favorite Hampton Roads hunk appearing in its new 2018 Magic Mutt calendar.
Fourteen men are competing for the top honor of cover model. Each model is featured with an animal who was up for adoption at the time of the photographic sessions this summer.
Voters can choose their favorites by making online donations here for a minimum amount of $1.00 per vote. They may vote as many times as they wish. Voters can also enter to have their own pet featured in the Magic Mutt calendar, with the month to be selected by the highest vote getter.
“We are excited to have the voting public select this year’s winning cover model in support of the lifesaving work of the Norfolk SPCA,” said Debra Dowden-Crockett, Norfolk SPCA Board Member and Committee Chair for the Magic Mutt calendar.
“In addition to the fun of the competition, everyone who participates will be helping us raise funds to provide care for so many pets in need,” she explained.
The voting public will choose the winner by voting online between Friday, August 4 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, September 3, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.
The 2018 Magic Mutt calendar will be released on October 7, 2017, at a launch party that will feature the calendar models as well as live music, dancing, and a silent auction. All animal-loving individuals in Hampton Roads are invited to join in the fun. Tickets and pre-orders for the calendar are now on sale at NorfolkSPCA.org.
Proceeds of calendar and event ticket sales will support the Norfolk SPCA’s animal care programs that save and improve the lives of thousands of dogs and cats every year. In 2016, the Norfolk SPCA completed more than 970 adoptions from its shelter for homeless animals. Also last year, the Norfolk SPCA’s veterinary clinic performed more than 3,200 spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinated more than 11,000 animals owned by the public in its walk-in clinic.
The Norfolk SPCA relies upon private donations to run its programs and is not a local chapter of the American SPCA in New York City.
