Raise Awareness in a BIG way

Have fun showing off the big heart of your furry best friend while raising awareness for local dog rescues by participating in the BigDog Best Friends photo contest.

Show us what you love most about your dog – their big smile, big personalities, big energy, and more – for an opportunity to win incredible prizes for a local, non-profit dog organization of your choice!*

Dog rescues throughout the country work tirelessly to provide protection, care, and shelter to stray and lost animals. Now, with the BigDog Best Friends photo contest, you have the chance to become part of an incredible journey to help give back to those who give so much.

Did you know…

  • Local rescues depend heavily on volunteers dedicated to saving the lives of dogs who have suffered from neglect, cruelty, or abandonment.
  • From donations, rescues are able to care for dogs, get them treated, and match them with the perfect forever family.
  • Across the country, local rescues work with other organizations to nurture and adopt dogs into permanent, loving homes.
  • Many rescues spay/neuter, microchip, and vaccinate dogs to ensure they are in good health.

Get your camera ready and join us to raise support for
non-profit dog organizations in your own backyard that give dogs a second chance and a forever home.
