2010 PADS Calendar
There's nothing like the beauty of a wall calendar. I've always had a calendar in my house. Even with all of the technology that's been created, nothing compares to the beauty of seeing gorgeous pictures that change every month.
A calendar is a great gift to give out at Christmas time. Everyone can use one. They make them about every topic imaginable. Dog calendars are always a huge seller. One of the calendar creators, For The Love Of Rescues, had their 2010 calendar sell out.
I came across these calendars and think they would make ideal gifts for the dog lover in your life. Better yet, all the profits from these go to animal charities.
This calendar is from Tony LaRussa's Animal Rescue Foundation. It features celebrities with their pets. I was very surprised to see Chelsey Sullenberger (the pilot who safely crash landed the U.S. Airways jet on the Hudson earlier this year) , as well as others on this. It is $15USD. Best of all, it has both dogs and cat-loving celebrities. Check out the site.
This organization is one that helps Pit Bulls by rescuing them and educating the public on the beauty of these incredible animals. They have two types of highly stylized calendars. They may be a little pricey at $19.99USD but if know know a person who is a fan of the breed, it may be well worth it to take a look at the My Dog Is Family or the Happy Endings calendar.
Car Racing is the largest spectator sport here in America. NASCAR is synonymous with this sport. This calendar features racing giants like Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt, Jr., as well as media celebrities like Jamie Little and John Roberts. All proceeds benefit the Greg Biffle Foundation, which was founded by NASCAR racer Greg Biffle in 2005 to improve the well being of animals. The cost for this calendar is $13.99USD.
Pacific Assistance Dogs is an organization in Canada that has been training assistance dogs for the past 22 years. They train all types of dogs whether it be to assist with a hearing-impaired individual or those who have been affected by a physical disability. They even offer the option of personalizing the calendar. These sell for $12.00. You can even get them express-mailed if need be. Take a closer look here.
If you know someone who loves the NHL, the Pittsburgh Penguins created a special calendar for 2010. It is one of the pricier selections out there at $23USD but the proceeds of the sales will benefit Animal Friends, an organization which is an organization in Pittsburgh that began as a shelter yet has evolved into so much more, and the Animal Rescue League of Western Pennsylvania, which helps out homeless pets too.
Calendar CollectionsThere are two websites I found that you can get your pick of calendars:
Guidedogs.org. The amount of calendars is numerous and if you live in Europe, it may be easier to get a calendar before 2010 begins. Calendars start at £4.99.
