The Los Angeles Fire Department and Best Friends Animal Society have teamed up to create a 16-month charity calendar, themed “rescue L.A.”
This calendar features firefighters posing with shelter dogs in need of rescue, personal pets that firefighters have rescued from shelters or the streets, and search-and-rescue canines.
The calendar also includes information regarding animal welfare and shelter adoption, as well as seasonal fire and life safety tips that focus on disaster preparedness.
Proceeds from calendar sales directly benefit Los Angeles animal shelters, which are facing an overpopulation crisis. Hundreds of thousands of animals go into the shelters annually, but only about a third of them are adopted, according to the animal society.
