Bark & Gold Photography is excited to partner with Biggies Bullies for our sixth annual pet calendar contest! This year's contest will run from January 10, 2022 and through March 4, 2022 with a goal of raising $25,000 in an effort to make this our biggest calendar contest year to date!
Biggies Bullies is a Pittsburgh foster home-based rescue founded in 2011, which focuses on educating the public on responsible pet ownership, positive force-free training, and the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. This 100% volunteer-developed and staffed rescue ensures proper placement by making appropriate matches to the right families through love, care, and humane training and remains a lifelong resource for those families. Proceeds from the sale of the calendar along with entry and voting fees throughout the photo contest will assist Biggies Bullies with its mission of rescuing and re-homing pit bull-type dogs in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas.

"Jessica, my prior fundraisers never passed $2K per event. This is amazing. You are amazing for creating this guide for us too! Be very proud as you made these fundraisers happen!

"We're still hearing from so many pet photographers about how your calendar contest strategy has helped their businesses! In fact, I had a coaching call today with someone who had just completed your course and couldn't stop raving about it!"
Caitlin of The Pet Photographers Club
"I wanted to thank you for your calendar contest plan. I received it in Elevate (so I paid for it indirectly), but I want you to know this is worth paying for. Your program is outstanding!"
Jan B. of Shadow Dog Photography
"After [Jessica's] podcast, [I] employed a few ideas, wrote up the proposal and all the content for posting, gave it to the shelter, and they ran with it. We raised $16K!"
