Share your pet’s story for a shot at stardom as one of 12 animals featured in our 2022 calendar!

Our annual calendar serves as both a fundraiser and thank-you to our donors. Over 40,000 copies are distributed each September to pet lovers and guardians across our community!

Each year we are able to help animals in need with care and sheltering thanks to staff and supporters.

This year we’re reaching out to you, proud pet parents of animals adopted from EHS. We’re asking you to share a photo and their story of becoming part of your family; helping to raise awareness of the work we do and further our mission of finding animals loving homes, like yours.
