The theme of the event is Sit, Stay and Relax which ties in with the calendar fundraiser and photo theme including local pets on their favorite forbidden chairs and accessorized according to the breed or type and period of furniture. This year, the calendar raised more than $15,000 in entries and votes to help the organization. The winning pets are featured in the calendar with professional photos by renowned photographer Addison Fitzgerald who donated his talents to the cause along with local artist Maribel Angel who donated her expertise and graphic design skills to create the calendarâ€™s unique theme.
