The top 25 pets will move on to the final round of voting.  

Anyone can vote, and there's no limit on votes cast - so vote early and vote often! Be sure to campaign for your pet on Facebook and Instagram, or call, text and email your friends to vote!

Voting starts on Friday, Sept 1 and lasts until Wednesday, October 4. 

The names and photos of all the pets entered into the contest will appear online here during first round of voting.

For first round of voting: The number of votes will be updated once a week each Sunday in The Sunday Journal and online Friday morning - Friday afternoon on this website.

Each vote for your favorites will cost $1 per vote, with a minimum of 5 votes per transaction. The 5 vote minimum can only apply to one pet at a time.

And best yet, we will share 10% of all voting proceeds with Argos, A Shelter Dog Rescue & New Mexico Animal Friends to help less fortunate pets in our community.


The names and photos of the top 25 pets will appear online during the final round of voting October 6th - November 10th, The 13 pets with the most votes at the end of final round voting will become the models for our 2024 calendar, published inside The Saturday Journal on December 30, 2023.
