Giving Back

Annual Pet Calendar Contest Fundraiser

One of the most impactful ways Bark & Gold Photography gives back is through its annual pet calendar contest, which launches every January in support of Biggies Bullies, a Pittsburgh-based pit bull rescue. 

Since the first year of this contest back in 2017, Pittsburgh pet parents and 178 furry entrants have helped raise more than $46,000 for local rescues and animal-related non-profits, all of which directly benefit the animals of these organizations! These funds are entirely the result of calendar contest entries, votes, reserve-a-grid-space donations, and calendar purchases made possible by Pittsburgh pet parents and pet-friendly businesses throughout the area.

Due to the growing success of this fundraiser, Bark & Gold Photography has been interviewed on the Hair of the Dog podcast as well as The Pet Photographers Club podcast, and a Create Profitable Pet Calendar Contests with Jessica Wasik course was made available exclusively through the Hair of the Dog Academy in 2020.
