Calendars will be on sale for $13. Homemade desserts will also be available. The pet calendar is a fundraising effort of the Headwaters Animal Shelter. All proceeds will go to the shelter to help provide loving care to homeless cats and dogs.

The Headwaters Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization, and receives no state or national funding.
