Since we began in 2020, our annual Calendar Competition, where participants submit their best quality adventure pics via Instagram for a chance to be featured in our calendar, has been our biggest fundraiser. This meaningful campaign attracts hundreds of entries each year, and are painstakingly whittled down to the top 27 finalists for our followers to vote on, with the top 13 most liked posts featured in our upcoming calendar. Our first calendar raised HK$13,475 for Harbin SHS Animal Rescue in 2021, and $22,175 for HK Paws Foundation in 2022. This year we hope to raise funds for another one of our local shelters, TAILS Lantau.
So, without further ado, here are our top 13 pictures for #ExploringDogs2024 ...
