The Results Are In: Meet the 2016 ASPCA Calendar Cover Pet

This year’s Calendar Cover Pet contest came down to a real “photo finish!” Thanks to nearly 25,000 votes from animal-lovers nationwide, we now know which adorable adopted companion will be gracing the cover of our 2016 calendar: Dharma the pit bull!

Dharma was found on a roadside with a prolapsed uterus, having just given birth. The puppies were not there and she had clearly been abused. After her rescue and adoption, Dharma proved to be a perfect pet who enjoys road trips, hiking and being a loving, loyal companion.

Thanks to everyone who voted. Together, we can ensure that adopted animals are celebrated 365 days a year.
