The Tampa Bay Rays' first “Players and Pooches” calendar went on sale today, May 4. Buy the calendar and benefit a worthy local cause: the no-kill Pet Pal shelter.
The 13-month, full-color calendar features Rays Manager Joe Maddon with his Great Dame, 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; and B.J. Upton with Deuce, a Rhodesian Ridgeback.
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 in a news release.
