Does your pet have star potential? Are you eager to share that adorable, furry (or feathered… or scaly… or slimy) face with the world? Are you passionate about raising awareness for domestic violence and helping an organization that empowers domestic abuse survivors to live peaceful, violence-free lives?
Then we want YOU and your progressive pet to be featured in our 2015 W.O.M.A.N., Inc. Pet Calendar! This calendar idea was born out of the same sentiment that inspired our Doggie Walk Event: that not only are cases of pet abuse and domestic abuse closely correlated, but that pets make great companions for the self-care, recovery, and healing of domestic abuse survivors. According to the American Humane Association, 71% of pet-owning survivors entering shelters reported abuse of their family pets. Most incidents of pet abuse occur in the presence of the survivor and/or their children, as an attempt to coerce and control the survivor. For many domestic violence survivors, pets provide strong emotional support and comfort.
To kick off October as Domestic Violence Awareness month, we want to celebrate the wonderful relationship between loving pet-owners and their animal friends, and we want you to participate! W.O.M.A.N., Inc. will be hosting the Pet Calendar Competition, allowing the community to send in their pet photos to be featured in our 2015 W.O.M.A.N., Inc. Pet Calendar! For extra points, include the W.O.M.A.N., Inc. Logo into your pet picture! (It might give your photo better odds of being selected)!
There are only 5 spots available, so if you’re interested in having your pet featured in our 2015 Calendar, email Mariya Taher at firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo and a 25 to 50 word blip about why you love your furry companion.
