2023 MEOW Foundation Calendar

It’s never too early to start thinking about next year’s calendar! We’re excited to already be in the planning stages of our 2023 calendar. The previous calendar season saw a return to many retailers and vets in the Calgary area, and we’re hoping to add even more this year!

Calling all MEOW-dels Calendar Raffle

Get a chance to win a photo shoot for your MEOW cat and a feature photo in the 2023 MEOW Foundation Calendar!

We wanted to give MEOW alumni an extra chance to join in the fun this year! In addition to our regular mini photos, we’re offering MEOW adopters the chance to win a photo shoot for their MEOW cat, with a photo from that shoot appearing as a monthly feature in the 2023 calendar.

Important Information to Note Before Purchasing Raffle Tickets

This contest is open to MEOW Foundation cats only. Cats who are not from MEOW are still eligible to be featured as a mini photo for a donation of $50. See more information here!

Tickets give you a chance to win an in-home photo shoot for your cat by a professional-level photographer. This means your cat must be friendly with strangers and comfortable with the size and sounds of a digital SLR camera.

If you don’t win, your ticket purchase will entitle you to one mini photo in the 2023 calendar.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Purchase tickets in our online store. Tickets are one for $100 or three for $150. Be sure to include all the information requested in the purchase notes, including your cat’s original MEOW name and confirmation that he or she will be social enough for the photographer to capture photos of them.
  2. The draw for winners will be on May 31, 2022. There will be six winners drawn.
  3. If yours is a winning ticket, we’ll be in touch to get more information from you and schedule your photo shoot.

We are relying on cat owners to be realistic and honest about how social their cat is. If you worry that your cat may not enjoy having their photo taken at your home, consider submitting one of your own photos of your cat as a mini photo instead.

Each individual can only win once. If the same name is drawn more than once, we will draw again for a new winner.
