The cover photo is Kenny and Elaine Pinckard’s Brandy Grace.

“Brandy is a rescue cat from Quincy, Ohio,” Howard said. “She was nearly two years old, pregnant and without hair when a couple took her into their home and nursed her back to health.

“The couple put her picture on the website they have for all their rescue animals. Kenny and Elaine saw the picture and now she is a member of their ‘family.’”

Brady Grace was the top “cat” in the pet photo fundraising contest and the next 12 pets that raised the most money for the Humane Society of Pike County are the “Pets of the Month.”

“The Humane Society of Pike County wanted to make sure that every pet that was entered in the contest was in featured in the calendar,” Howard said. “It’s a pretty and interesting calendar and one that will be enjoyed all year long.”

The calendars are $10 each and are available at On the Square Antiques, The Little Framery, Epix, Gynn’s Tax Service, Troy Animal Clinic, Troy Bank & Trust, Regions Bank, First Impressions, Byrd Drug, First National Bank, Terra Cotta, Bows and Bubbles, Sprint Battery Specialist and Trojan Animal Clinic all in Troy. Calendars are also available at Jones Animal Clinic and First National Bank in Brundidge, Troy Bank & Trust in Goshen and Sisters on Highway 231.

“The funds raised by the Humane Society of Pike County’s Pet Photo Contest will be used for its annual spay and neuter program, which offers discount spay/neuters for pets of citizens of Pike County and Troy University students,” Howard said. “The funds will also be used to fund education, feral cat, shelter and families in need programs.”

Howard expressed appreciation to all of those who entered their pets in the contest and the businesses that supported the fundraiser with advertisements in the calendar.

“We also want to thank all of those who cast dollar votes in the contest and those who will purchase the 2010 Humane Society of Pike County’s Pet Photo Calendars,” she said.
