The year is half over, which means you must be in the market for a calendar. If you’re into rescue dogs, charitable donations and shirtless firefighters holding said rescue dogs in pictures, then the Charleston Animal Society has the calendar for you.
The society’s Charleston Area Firefighter Calendar features irresistible pouty faces and deep soulful eyes — the kind you can never say no to. Oh, and the half-naked firefighters aren’t too bad either.
Proceeds from the 2017 calendar benefit Toby’s Fund, the medical fund that allows the Charleston, South Carolina-based society to care for and treat animals that may not otherwise get the help they need, including abused, abandoned, neglected and unwanted animals.
The 2016 calendar reportedly raised more than $600,000. One look at the pictures from the 2017 calendar and we’re inclined to think it will do just as well.
The 2017 Charleston Area Firefighter Calendar is available for pre-order for $20. For $30, you can get an autographed calendar and for $45 you can get a personalized calendar.
If you’re in Charleston, South Carolina, or will be October 1, the Charleston Animal Society is holding a calendar debut party, complete with behind-the-scenes videos, a runway show and a live-date auction. Proceeds from the tickets, which cost between $35 and $1,000, also benefit Toby’s Fund.
