The Best Calendars Ever!

AID Calendars for 2014 are now available. A joint project with the ITI1 team at Air Products has resulted in a one-of-a-kind. Animals In Distress calendar, with each month featuring special rescues and full color photos.

2014 Animals In Distress Calendar

Each month tells the story of the featured pet(s) we rescued, and dozens of memorable photos are included. You see in February, for example, the pictures of Hero and Theresa, two dogs who lived in a park for over 8 years, barely surviving. Hero even had to chew off his lower leg when he was hit by a car. They are older dogs, not photogenic in the usual sense of that term, but they are devoted to each other: he would die to protect her. We chose this couple to represent February, the month when we celebrate Valentine’s Day and Love. Who better to reflect true Love and Loyalty than these two dogs, dogs who were turned down at 56 other organizations, dogs who were deemed unadoptable and unworthy of being given a second chance. After they had gone through unspeakable fear, pain, and uncertainty for over 8 years, their fate was to be death… imagine a world where no one would save them. Imagine a world where they would not be allowed to spend their remaining days together, in a safe place, in a place of peace and safety. So, we selected them to represent the heart and soul of what Love is all about. Our calendar matches each featured pet’s story with the spirit of that month.

As you can probably tell, this calendar is so much more than dates and pretty pictures. It reflects the heart and soul of our organization. It is truly very special.

We hope you will give these as gifts to everyone on your shopping list: in that way, each “gift” will be appreciated by the recipient AND will help to save lives and care for the shelter residents. We set the price at $12, which is very reasonable considering the cost to print them in full color on heavy, high quality paper. We wish we were able to mail these to everyone for free, as do many of the larger national animal groups; but we need every dollar for the work we do, so we hope you will support this fundraiser and know that your money is being used for animal rescue, not for mass mailings by highly paid marketers creating high pressure promotions.

If you can’t come to the shelter, we are happy to mail calendar orders as well, for a shipping cost of $6.00 (our cost) for one calendar, with $4 extra for each calendar after the first one, all to the same address. We can also mail directly to the recipient, at $6.00 postage for each different address. Contact us to place your order.
