Sit, Stay, Smile Photo Contest

Our online photo contest is a fan favorite that attracts aspiring photographers and devoted pet parents with the chance to showcase their dog or cat in Joybound’s wall calendar. Throughout the summer, photo entries gain votes through donations for a chance to win a coveted spot in next year’s calendar.

Over 500 participants enter and donate through the contest web page and receive a printed calendar, both of which could feature your company’s logo.

Past contest sponsors have included:

Wine & Whiskers

The popular Wine & Whiskers gala sells out with 400 guests every year! This fundraiser includes high-end wine tastings and delicious hors d’oeuvres from the area’s best restaurants and caterers. Each year the silent auction features unique experiences, wine packages, pet products, and more!

Best of all, this event is never held in a stuffy hotel ballroom like so many other charity galas. We host it right in the center of our beautiful campus, giving guests a unique, behind-the-scenes look at our lifesaving mission with many animals available to meet.
