We're putting our 2013 calendar together right now, and staffers and volunteers representing all 12 months of the year have been photographed with their furry friends. There's only one big decision left to make, and we’re leaving the answer up to you: Who should grace the calendar’s cover?

We've narrowed down the field to four contenders. Check out the photos that are in the running, read a little about their sweet four-legged subjects, and then cast your vote for our 2013 Cover Dog or Cat. The pet whose photo gets the most votes will have his or her face in homes all over America!

The contest is now closed! Check back next year!

Any dog who survived a gunshot wound deserves to be a "cover girl" in my book!

The 2 dogs represent the variety of animals that need help. I have 2 rescue kitties! They are great with our dog.

I wish there could be several covers. All of them have such wonderful stories to tell.

I would say the pit that killed paid with his life as well. And it was the owner who should be up on charges for non socialization of the animal.

I have six rescue dogs and one is a pit mix, another a Reagle - a Rotti/beagle mix, another a Dalmatian, and three beagles. We recently had our husky/GS die of old age - we miss her as do the dogs who grieved.

The pit is still a pup - he is less that 18 months and is dominated by the smallest girl beagle who is a recent rescue this year. I am truly sorry for your loss - the loss of a beloved pet is losing a family member. I do believe you should report the jerk who left this dog unattended, and who sounds like was trained to kill.

Animals like children need to have PROPER supervision and be taught not to do harm. Also like children who are taught to HATE, animals are taught to harm. Dog fighter participants use dogs like your poor pup as bait animals - the cruelty is unbelievable. The owner should be charged and you already killed the dog.

BUT DON'T RUBBER STAMP please - these dogs are loving just as much as any other breed. My husband who was hesitant about Oscar because of all the bad press, has been adopted by the pit - my husband has dementia and all the dogs gather around him but the pit is his constant companion.

would love to see dogs and cats together. Our dog plays and sleeps with our cats,it,s sweet.

I would have loved seeing a picture of a horse or two.


An overweight dog or cat on a cover is not good promotion of proper animal health. Cat and dog on the cover would be best.

All 4 photos are equally adorable. How about a collage of many different photos of cats and dogs and even other kinds of pets that ASPCA work with.
