We are now accepting pet/animal photos for our 2018 calendar.

Please send us a favorite photo or two (no more than three of each pet, please!) of your dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, horses, any animal you care about, even one of a backyard squirrel or raccoon will be considered, as long as it’s a good and interesting photo. The deadline for submitting is July 15, 2017. Send to bhannable@gmail.com and include the words “2018 calendar” in the subject line. If you’d like to see your pet appear in a particular month, please tell us which month and we will try to accommodate you (but cannot promise).

Photos should be good quality (at least 100 dpi or 4″x6″ in size), not blurry or dark, or with no people or parts of people (hands, feet, etc.) in them. Please identify the animal(s) by name and state the owner’s name. We will not print owners’ names, but we need them in order to keep track of photos submitted. Preference will be given to rescues and those adopted through FOBA, so please let us know if your pet was adopted from FOBA, a shelter or other rescue organization. We will do our best to acknowledge all photos received. Please share this message with anyone you think might be interested in having their pet in FOBA’s 2018 calendar.

If you had a pet in our previous calendar(s), we hope that you enjoyed seeing your animal friend there, and we hope you’ll submit another photo for 2018. If your pet didn’t make last year’s calendar, please try again. Whether you sent us photos and/or purchased a calendar last year, we want to thank you again for your support.

Many thanks again to the wonderful local stores who sold our 2017 calendars: Beverly Wild Bird & Pet Supply, Carroll’s Florist, DogSpa, Dogs by Design, Marika’s Restaurant, Soho Luxury Feline Cat Hotel. We are always looking for more places to sell them, if you have any ideas, please let us know.

Selling calendars is just one of the ways that FOBA raises funds to help animals. We use this money to buy food and supplies for our rescues and for their veterinary care. We will keep saving animals and pursuing our dream of one day having a shelter in Beverly.
