When not doing their best to better the lives of pets across the state, the Michigan Humane Society is capturing cuteness in the best way possible - with a calendar.

For next year's Michigan Humane Society calendar, the animal welfare organization is holding a contest, ending tonight, to determine which pets will be featured in the 2019 edition. The contest is doing more than just cultivating cuddles as each entrant comes with a minimum $25 donation, and every vote is worth $1. So far, the contest has raised $16, 719 of a 20,000 goal.

The top voted pet will receive a "Pet of the Month" feature in the calendar with a bio accompanying the photo. The rest of the top 40 will be included in the calendar solely with photos. All winners will receive prizes including free copies of the calendar. 

Those looking to register can do so here, with those looking to vote (or just look at some cute pets) here. Both must be done before 10 p.m. tonight.
