3 dogs on 2018 calendar start page

We’re SO excited we’re grinning from ear to ear!

And we hope you’ll come join us for our 10th annual Puppy Up Foundation “Cancer Can’t Keep a Good Dog Down” Calendar Contest. You can get started right HERE.

Enter the contest to honor your canine cancer hero.

Who can enter? Anyone with a dog who currently has or has had cancer (living or passed).  Dogs who have been entered in prior contests are  welcome to enter again.

How does it work? From now until July 30th, register your dog as a participant in the contest.  Then upload your best high resolution photo (>2 Megs or higher) and your dog’s story  (about one paragraph), and how he or she came to be touched by cancer. You’ll find all the instruction on how to create your dog’s special page during the registration process, but if you have any questions, just email Erich Trapp at: erich@puppyup.org.

Voting begins as soon as you enter. Your $10 registration fee applies as the first 10 votes for your dog. (Votes are only $1.00 each, with a minimum donation of $5.00.) Remember, the sooner you register, the more often you and friends can vote. Don’t wait until the last minute!

Share your page on your favorite social media sites, and encourage your family and friends to go to your page and vote for your dog.

If you want to enter more than 1 dog, there is a separate $10 registration fee for each. Create a special page for each dog.

The 13 pups with the highest number of votes will win prominent places in the 2018 calendar. Winners will choose which month they want their dogs to be on.

Along with their photo, the 13 winners will also have their dog’s personal story published in the calendar. Please be sure to include your dog’s story on the page you create. By sharing their story, you celebrate their life, and give others encouragement as well.

And NO dog will be left out. ALL of the photo entries will be included in our 2018 Calendar. Each year we feature a gallery of all of the photographs submitted.

We’re looking forward to all this year’s entries, and, through your participation, to continue funding vital canine cancer research.

So, come join the fun, enter your dog, vote for your favorites, and help make a difference.  Directly support critical canine cancer research.



Registration: Right here. Only $10 per entry per dog

Voting begins as soon as you enter!

All voting ends at 12:00 pm EDT on July 30th.

Your registration fee counts as the first 10 votes for your dog. You and friends and family can vote for your favorites as often as you want, with a $5 minimum each time.

For questions about the contest or technical issues with your photographs or stories, please contact Erich Trapp at erich@puppyup.org.


Through the enthusiastic involvement of people like you, our yearly calendar contest and our growing network of nationwide Puppy Up Walks have helped support these important research grants.

Your contributions, and the contributions of family, friends, and colleagues, promote awareness of canine cancer, and help raise funds for significant cancer research that benefits both pets and people.

Yes, you can make a difference!
