Animal lovers often wish they could save all the animals in the world, but that isn’t realistic. Even just rescuing one or two requires extra space, time and finances to support them. 

Artist Debra Cortese felt that way too, until she found a way to help as many animals as possible by tapping into her creativity and making the ‘Adopt a Shelter Dog’ calendar for 2009.

The shelter dog calendar is filled with adorable, precious, cute, charming, and outright funny canines. Look at those irresistible faces! Can’t you hear them almost begging, “Please help me?" 

Debora Cortese gives 50% of her profits from ‘Adopt a Shelter Dog’ calendar sales, as well as other Art for the Animals items (see Read More URL) to organizations that help abandoned animals. The other 50% helps her with the cost of her art, production and distribution fees. 

If an ‘Adopt a Shelter Dog’ calendar doesn’t suit your fancy, she also has the cover shot on tote bags, coffee mugs, magnets, and tee shirts. Stats for Abandoned Animal Awareness Trending: Older & Chilly
