The Tampa Bay Rays first “Players and Pooches” calendar will go on sale Friday, May 4th at Pet Pal Animal Shelter and Pet Pal Veterinary Clinic as well as the Rays Team Store at Tropicana Field, the Rays Pro Shop and Sales Office in Tampa. The calendar will sell for $15. All proceeds from the sales will go to Pet Pal Animal Shelter.
“I cannot express in words how grateful and thankful the Pet Pal staff and volunteers are for these amazing men and women who have come together to support our Shelter. Their generosity will help save hundreds, even thousands of animals’ lives. This is a huge win for the animals,” says Scott Daly, Executive Director of Pet Pal.
The 13-month, full-color calendar features Rays Manager Joe Maddon with his Great Dane, Athena and his English Bulldog, Winston; Evan Longoria and his Boerboel Mastiff, Tatum and Bull Terrier, Jango, both rescues; David Price and his beloved French Bulldog, Astro; and B.J. Upton with Deuce, a Rhodesian Ridgeback.
Pet Pal Animal Shelter is a no-kill, non profit organization committed to rescuing dogs and cats from animal shelters that may otherwise be euthanized due to time limitations or lack of socialization or training. Pet Pal is also dedicated to educating the public about the pet overpopulation crisis, the importance of spaying/neutering and responsible pet ownership.
