How's this for a good idea - a delightful calendar that also support a great cause?
Sound appealing? If so, the 2013 calendar from the Beagle Freedom Project is one calendar to consider. The Beagle Freedom Project works with various labs that use beagles for research. "When they are no longer wanted for research purposes, some labs attempt to find homes for adoptable, healthy beagles. Working directly with these labs, Beagle Freedom Project is able to remove and transport beagles to place them in loving homes. All rescues are done legally with the cooperation of the facility."
Many other animal rescue organizations produce calendars, too. Here's the one from the American Bullmastiff Association Rescue Service.
A number of SPCAs in the U.S. and Canada raise money through calendar sales, so that's yet another option to consider. The one above comes from the Bow Valley SPCA in Alberta.
And here's the 2013 calendar from Broadway Barks, "a star-studded dog and cat adopt-a-thon benefiting New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies. The event produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and sponsored by the ASPCA and with additional sponsorship by the New York Times."
The calendar is sold by the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, which tells us that "Animal-related holidays appear each month, so you won't miss Adopt a Senior Pet Month (November), Hairball Awareness Day (April 30), International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day (February 23), or any other serious or fun celebrations of the animals who share our lives!"
