Every dog has its day. But your's could have its own month. Same goes for your parakeet, iguana or cat, too.

Friday Harbor Animal Protection Society is seeking photos of island pets for a "San Juan Island Pets" 2014 calendar, the first step of a prospective fundraiser to benefit the animal shelter.

Photos will be judged in part on "island flair" and what they say about island-life for pets. Consider holiday photos and those that reflect a certain season of the year.

Each suitable photo submitted that not chosen to represent a month of the year will be included on a separate page at the back of the calendar — so every pet is a winner.

Entry forms and digital images can be submitted online,, or in person at the animal shelter, noon to 4 p.m., Tues-Sun, 111 Shelter Rd. Fee is $10 per entry, to off-set printing costs; each image submitted must be accompanied by its own entry form. Deadline for submissions is Aug. 19.
