Congrats to our winners!

Wow! You really, really love animal photos. Luckily, so do we. Our team of Get Ready judges had a great time reviewing all the amazing photos you submitted —  all 500 of them!

It was very, very hard to choose, but we narrowed our selections to 17 photos that will be featured in APHA's 2020 Get Ready Calendar.

Congratulations to Michele Blake, Daniel Brown, Charlene Cariou, Jacqueline Cellini, Lauren Haggerty, Kelsey Hustedt, Jessica Kulak, Sarah Lopatka, Aretha Miller, Annie Nguyen, Anna Ojczy, Kayla Parker, Kathleen Richter, Anna Sachs, Jovan Shepherd, Annette Wilk and Pam Willow! Your photos will be published in the calendar, which will be released this fall.

But wait! There's more! Vote now in our polls

Our judges loved the photos we received so, so much, we couldn't use just 17 of them. So we used 150 of them in our second-chance polls!

Cast your vote now in our Cutest Choice Awards in to determine which pets are the most comfiest or most playful or has the best eyes and smile! Make sure and vote in all 10 of our polls, open now!


We're also going to use some of the non-winning photos in an Instagram caption contest and to create desktop patterns that we'll give out throughout the year. So stay tuned!
