Calendars to Manage Your Time - and Help a Good Cause

Dog Days 2010 calendar

Update on Oct. 28, 2010: Although this post features 2010 calendars, some of the organizations noted have 2011 versions available now (or coming soon); the links have been updated to point to the new calendars.

Animal shelter and rescue organizations and humane societies often create some very nice calendars; here's just a sampling. The Dog Days calendar above is created by Sutton Studios to benefit a number of agencies in the Chicago area. Update on Oct. 28, 2010: There doesn't appear to be a 2011 version of this calendar.

Boston Buddies 201o calendar - Boston terriers

Boston Buddies comes from Southern California Boston Terrier Rescue. Check out the web site to see all the interior pages. Update on Oct. 28, 2010: There doesn't seem to be a 2011 version of this calendar, either.

Paws & Claws 2010 humane society calendar

The Humane Society of Northwest Montana uses illustrations by artist Jane Kleinschmidt on its 2010 Paws & Claws calendar. Update on Oct. 28, 2010: This group does have a 2011 calendar, this time with photos by Harley Mumma.

Atlanta pet rescue calendar

And the 2010 calendar from Atlanta Pet Rescue features the work of pet photographer Leesia Teh. Update on Oct. 28, 2010: 2011 calendars are coming soon.

dachshund rescue calendar 2010

While I spoke about the Dallas-Fort Worth Dachshund Rescue Foundation's calendar back in November 2008, it's so stunning I had to show this year's, too. Update on Oct. 28, 2010: The 2011 calendar is equally compelling!

greyhound rescue calendar
Clarks Farm Greyhound Rescue has produced its first calendar. Update on Oct. 28, 2010: There's no indication this group will be producing a calendar for 2011.

And the Detroit Lions / Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter Pet Calendar looks like it will be pretty great, too. You can see the terrific photos from the photo shoot (which are copyright protected) at the Detroit Free Press web site. [via Nancy Nall] Update on Oct. 28, 2010: There's a 2011 version of this calendar available.
