The May 2nd photo shoot has been moved to the Second Chance at Life Adoption Event hosted by Cabela, Citrus Park Petsmart, 12835 Citrus Park Plaza, Tampa from 10-4pm. Heather Papolos Photography will be located in the St. Francis Society Animal Rescue booth.


See you there and don't forget to go online and vote for your April favorite pet.


2016 Monthly Calendar Contest which will benefit St Francis Rescue will be held each month in 2015 on the property of Westchase Veterinary Clinic.

When: A new contest starts every month. Each month's winning pet will receive a separate photo shoot and receive a feature page for that month's calendar page.

How to Win: Come on out to Westchase Veterinary or a location to be announced for the monthly photo shoot and receive

A free photo session for your pet

A free hi resolution digital file for printing or sharing

A free goody bag with gifts from our sponsors

A free posting in our monthly calendar contest

The photographer will pick the best image of your pet to be featured in the calendar contest for that month. The calendar voting page will be promoted to animal lovers but no one loves your pet more than you so it’s up to you to encourage everyone you know to vote for your pet. Each vote is $1 [minimum 5 votes per entry] and all proceeds benefit homeless pets in need. The image with the highest votes at the end of the month wins the spot in the calendar!

No appointment is necessary. You may bring more than one pet to participate but only one pet will be permitted per photo.

You are welcome to come back to future sessions or you can use your first photo every month for the duration of the contest. At the end of each month the votes will be cleared and previous month’s photos will be re-posted [if desired] along with the new photos from that month’s photo session. There is no limit on the number of pets you can enter in the contest.

Cats will be photographed separately from the dogs so please contact us to make arrangements in advance.

Come on out to the Citrus Park Petsmart and meet Cabela, the dog who was found by the Tampa Police Dept. tied to a railroad track and shot.


Surgeons from the Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Services were able to save Cabela's life and her leg and she is now healed and ready to be adopted by her forever family.


Cabela would like to share her good fortune and help over 100 homeless dogs and cats find their forever homes too. Several local area rescues will attend this Second Chance at Life Adoption Event including the St. Francis Society Animal Rescue.



Cabela will also be accompanied by her heroes from the Sheriff's Dept and the Fire Dept. St. Francis Society is very honored to help sponsor this special event and we hope to see you there.
