The Cleburne Animal Shelter will soon be selling a 2020 calendar which features photos of local first responders, city officials, students and residents with shelter dogs.
The calender was created by the Cleburne Times-Review.
Cleburne Animal Shelter Manager Mindy Henry said she has been excited to work on this project with the paper.
“We will be selling the calendars for $15 and all proceeds will go to our Happy Tails Fund,” she said. “This fund allows us to provide care beyond our budgetary allowances, for sick or injured pets that come into our shelter.
“For example, we had a wonderful Rottweiler in our shelter that was heartworm positive. The Happy Tails Fund paid for that treatment.”
This is the second year the Times-Review has teamed up with the shelter for such a project.
Times-Review Managing Editor Monica Faram said the calendar is one of the staff’s favorite projects.
“Working with the Cleburne Animal Shelter has been tremendous,” Faram said. “We love doing projects like this that benefit our community.
“Everyone was excited this year to participate, from the animal shelter staff to the residents at the nursing home.”
Animal lovers can purchase their calendar at the shelter, 2375 Service Drive.
“We will also have them for sale at our upcoming adoption events at Hulen Park on Saturday during Dachshund Days and at The Depot on Nov. 9 during the 3rd Annual Veteran’s Day Car Show and Toy Drive,” Henry said. “We loving doing this project with the Cleburne Times-Review – it’s so much fun to be out there with the community and the shelter pets and we truly appreciate the support that everyone involved has shown to us.”
