There are still five months left in 2016, but Charleston Animal Society is giving everyone a head start on snagging a copy of the 2017 firefighter calendar. Sales from the calendar raise money for Toby’s Fund, the animal society’s medical fund for injured, abused, and abandoned animals.
Calendars start at $20 with autographed and personalized versions available at an additional cost. This year, each pre-order will come with a free “pet alert” window cling that helps firefighters identify residences with pets potentially trapped inside during a house fire. Pre-order your calendar here.
The debut party for the 2017 calendar will be held on Oct. 1 at Memminger Auditorium. At the party, you can bid on your favorite hunky heroes (the firefighters, that is) to raise more money for Toby’s Fund.
If you have an immediate need for a calendar, the 2016 version is still available. This year’s calendar features the story of Caitlyn, a pup found last summer with her muzzle taped shut on the streets of North Charleston. The calendar project has raised over $600,000 for Charleston Animal Society so far this year.
