Enter a photo of your pet into our 1st chapter mascot photo contest!

Registration extended until 10/6

ARCS Orange County is excited to unveil the inaugural Chapter Mascot Photo Competition. You can submit photos of your favorite pets -- dogs, cats, lizards, rabbits, hamsters, tarantulas, goldfish, leucistic axolotls…axolotii…axo, uh, salamanders -- for the consideration of your colleagues, friends, and family.

Unlike national elections, buying votes is encouraged! In fact, it’s required! Your generous dollars, uh, votes, will go to a great cause -- namely, our ARCS Orange County Scholars.

The winner of the Chapter Mascot Photo Competition will receive a $500+ gift certificate for a photo session -- and prints! -- with their pet, generously sponsored by Dogma Photography of Costa Mesa. The photo of the new ARCS-OC Chapter Mascot will appear in our newsletter and on our website.

All participants will receive a cartoon drawing version of their beloved pet to show off!

To enter the photo contest, register for this fundraiser below and email your photo to Nan Hultgren at

Winner will be announced on 10/29/23, National Cat Day.
