You probably think you have the cutest pet in the world! Well, now's your chance to prove that and save animals across Bay County.
Calendar Friends is a signature event the Bay County Humane Society holds every year. You can send in a picture of your pet, and for just one dollar anyone can vote for the cutest pet in Bay County.
The pets with the most votes will be put in the Humane Society's calendar coming out in October. The deadline for entering and voting for your pet is September 2; then they'll tally up the votes and announce which animals will be in the calendar at the Panama City Mall.
Proceeds from the calendar help the Humane Society save animals from starvation and sickness.
Mary Sanger explained, "It's used especially for our vet bills. Every month we have a huge vet bill; it's pretty big, about six grand. Since we're a no-kill shelter right now, we're over our capacity of 200 animals, and we just really need the help."
To get your family pet in the running you can drop off an 8 x 10 photo, a negative or CD, and $10. You can vote at the Humane Society or at their temporary voting location in the center of the mall.
