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!

As long as it is an animal on the cover, who cares??? These animals are happy, healthy and that is all that matters. We could go on and on about what should or should not be on the cover...and how petty is it for judging someone on how they spell. Trivial is what is it...this is about the animals and nothing else! I personally like BIG cats...but I have a great love for dogs and horses, humans with stupid stuff, not so much!

This is the first time in my life I have voted for a cat when dogs could be chosen. Rocky is sooo handsome..and deserves his
studly name. Please don't tell my Roo I voted for a cat...she'd never forgive me.....

How do you submit a photograph of your own cat?

No in fighting,please?! I love all the photos of all the dogs and cats, they are all becoming of being on the cover! God bless them and the ASPCA!

The consensus seems to be that it would be great to see dogs and cats together. I love and take care of both, but I made a choice
Pooch and Schnogg!


I would like to see many more variety of animals throughout the calendar. Rabbits are the third most popular house pet after cats and dogs. Rats are charming and intelligent companions and make great friends. There are so many animals out there of all kinds, who need loving homes.


How about hedgehogs?

I've seen far less fighting between ANY species than I've seen in these comments. Can we all remember that this is about the cover of a calendar, not how people spell, or whether cats and dogs get along, or whatever else is bothering anyone.

All of the animals are lovely - it was a hard choice!
