2 Million Dogs Calendar

2 Million Dogs is such a hopeful organization. They are partners for a new hope in cancer research, for dogs. Because cancer touches everyone.

Now you can enter their calendar contest. Hurry, entries close on July 27th!

Who Can Enter? Any dog who currently has or has had cancer (living or passed) can be entered, including dogs who have been entered before. Yes, you can enter more than one dog. Entering your dog(s) is free and easy. 

What do I send and where? Send a high resolution digital photo of your dog and his or her story (about 150 words) to Erich at Make sure the photo is a minimum of 500kb.  As entries arrive, we'll post them to our 2 Million Dogs blog so you can have plenty of time to meet all the contestants.

How do we vote? On July 8, we'll post a link on our blog and that link will take you to where you cast your votes for your favorite dogs. All the dogs' stories and photos will be available to view. 1 dollar = 1 vote. The 13 dogs with the most votes win places on this year's calendar.

Where do my voting dollars go?  We're excited to announce that this year the proceeds from the Calendar will be dedicated to help fund a canine cancer study with The Broad Institute and the top 13 winners will decide which one of three studies to fund: osteosarcoma, lymphoma, or mast cell tumors. Your votes will have a direct and lasting impact on canine cancer research! (For more on each study, please click on the links.)
