Granite State Sheltie Rescue Calendar


You know we can never resist the chance to plug a good cause. We are not associated with Granite State Rescue. Being from MA, we actually came from New England Sheltie Rescue. However, Mom never misses the chance to support other rescue groups and when it means cute Sheltie pics, well who can resist. Actually, Dog Dad always picks up a couple of commercial Sheltie calendars to decorate the house, so when Mom saw a Rescue Sheltie calendar it seemed an awesome substitute. She gets to support a regional rescue and still enjoy her monthly Sheltie calendar.

Mom ordered hers this weekend. We know there are others out there who might be interested in a monthly Sheltie calendar or they wouldn't keep selling them commercially so we thought we'd put a plug in for a rescue option. You don't have to adopt a Sheltie to help, you can also purchase a rescue calendar instead of buying that Sheltie calendar at your local calendar store.

You can find information about ordering one here. Just a hint, don't make the mistake Mom make and click on the option for international shipping. They give you three options and that was just too confusing for Mom. The first picture is for pick up for locals. The second is for US shipping and the third for International. Of course Mom picks the International and had to back out the order. Most of you can probably figure this out, but we thought we'd mention it since Mom had an issue.

If you know of other rescues that are doing calendars for online purchase it might be worth posting links. They make cute gifts for dog lovers and they support great causes. As we said, we are not associated with Granite State Sheltie Rescue, but we are more than willing to switch from buying a commercial calendar to supporting a Sheltie Rescue. We are sure others would do the same if they had more information that such items were available to buy. Let's spread the word.

  3. I totally agree with purchasing to help rescues, why not help out a good cause with something you'd buy anyways! Our post today has a link to Bocker Labradoodles calendar.

  11. Good idea to spread the word about shelter calendars. Will have to see who's got them this year. I wish the rescue where we got Rita had one, but I don't think they do one. Will have to check!

  13. Calendars are a great way to help support rescues & shelters! I volunteer with the shelter I got my childhood dog from and they just published a calendar. Its the Bideawee Home in NY. Shelties are so beautiful, the calendar must be great!

    1. Made a mistake on first post. That is why it is so important to share this information. I had no idea Buddy Dog was offering a calendar and we live locally.
