Welcome to our 2021 Pet of the Year photo contest!


Vote TODAY for the pet you believe should be our RISE Pet of the Year! We have been through a lot this year, and our pets have been with us every step of the way. We want to share the joy these amazing pets bring us, along with their stories, quirks, warmth, and antics, into the homes of as many humans as possible. So don't be shy! Spread the love and vote for your favorite pet! We appreciate your support, whether it's in the form of a monetary donation or taking the time to hit like and share with all of your friends and loved ones.


In addition to filling the internet with adorable heartwarming cuteness, when you donate to RISE through our 2021 Pet of the Year contest, you respect, inspire, support, and empower survivors of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and/or intimate partner violence. Thank you for joining us in pursuing our vision of a community free of sexual assault/abuse and intimate partner violence. Happy voting!
