It’s that time of year! Time for APARN’s biggest fundraiser of the year! Is your cutest pug ready to help raise money for the APARN rescue pugs and get their shot at being the cutest pug of 2018?  Enter your cutest pug today in APARN’s 2018 Cutest Pug Content and may the cutest pugs win! 100% of the funds raised by each contestant in this contest go to the care of the APARN rescue pugs.  Every pug entered in the contest is an important part of raising funds to help rescue pugs find loving homes just like they have.  It is all about pugs (and pug mixes) helping pugs.

All pugs entered in APARN’s 2018 Cutest Pug Contest have a chance to win:

  • 1st Place, the Cutest Pug will be featured on the cover of APARN’s 2019 Cutest Pugs Calendar.
  • Top 3 Cutest Pugs will get a gift certificate for a custom painting by Chelsea Glass.
  • Top 4 Cutest Pugs will be featured on the Pug Paw Wicks candles next year.
  • Top 6 Cutest Pugs will be featured on the Pug Paw Wines bottles next year.
  • Top 12 Cutest Pugs will each be featured in the calendar.

Additional prizes include:

$50 gift card to every pug with 500 or more votes at the end of Round 2

$100 gift card to every pug with 1000 or more votes at the end of Round 5

A big thank you to Timothy T. Day Foundation’s Lulu’s Fund for supporting this year’s contest with a match! Every $1 vote turns into $2, because Lulu’s Fund will match every dollar earned in the Cutest Pug Contest (up to $25k). Lulu Day was the winner of APARN’s first Cutest Pug Contest, and has been an important part of the contest’s history.

Please note that there is a $5 entry fee and that fee does not count towards votes for your pug.  Voting rounds will begin every Sunday at noon, and closes every Saturday at 10 pm (Arizona time). It is $1 per vote and you can submit as many votes as you want.  All of the money earned from your votes goes to the rehabilitation and care of rescue pugs helping APARN in it’s mission to leave no pug behind.

NEW for this year, you can now enter bonded pairs!  The pugs must be bonded, meaning they are inseparable.  Only one picture of the two of them together can be entered.
