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!

Although it was hard to choose because I thought they all are adorable, I have to agree that it would be nice to have a combination cover on the front of kittens, puppies, cats, dogs or any other animal that may come through ASPCA to be adopted.

All the cats and dogs are beautiful and are sucess stories. Hard to select just one, but picked Rocky. A cover with all four photos would be wonderful. Photos of dogs and cats together would also be great to see on the cover. Thanks for all you do for the innocent animals by caring for them and finding loving homes for them.

I have both cats & dogs, all rescue animals, so that didn't affect my decision. I felt that since cats tend to be harder to place & the population is so out of control it makes sense to focus public attention on the adoption of cats.


I had to vote for pooch due to the story but I felt guilty as the others starred at me! Awwww hope they all make it!

I think that a collage of all the animals would be great----But if there is only one--I pick Buddy!


I see that one of these dogs is overweight and if you think you are helping that dog you are delusional. Put him on a diet, that is cruelty to have any animal overweight.

I wish they all could be cover pictures. They are all very precious!!


This is how I see should use the before and after pic's of them all. Because you kill me everytime that you run one of those commercials on TV. I volunteer everywhere I can locally, at all the shelters, the stables, I have always gotten rescue animals except for this last one, my husband got from his hair person. But, we still have 3 dogs and 1 cat. And, of course with my luck their has to be something different wrong with every single one of them and they all have to have different food and extra Vet bills plus meds. I have MS and Fybromyalgia, so my husband is the only one bringing in a paycheck....
So, if you want to make people give you their last dime, which I try to do as often as the before and after pic's.
Like I said, all those commercials send me bawling to find my animals and give them hugs and kisses. I even have adopted treat time in the neighborhood for the animals. They all know they can come to my house in the afternoon for a Milk Bone. My husband is a very tolerant man.

A collage of all is what I'd enjoy seeing.
