Are you a local dude who looks good with his shirt off while holding a puppy?
The animals need you. You are called to action, sir.
The Norfolk Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is putting together their 2018 “Magic Mutt” calendar. Here’s an image from the 2017 calendar:
For 2018, thirteen men will be selected for the honor—one for each month and one special choice for the cover, according to the Norfolk SPCA. Each will pose with an animal who is up for adoption at the time of the photographic sessions this summer.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to the Hampton Roads community,” Norfolk SPCA Development Director Jill Arnone said. “Folks who participate in this effort will be allowing us to raise much-needed funds to provide care for so many cats and dogs in need.”
Proceeds of calendar and event ticket sales will support the Norfolk SPCA’s animal care programs that save and improve the lives of thousands of dogs and cats every year. In 2016, the Norfolk SPCA completed just shy of 1,000 adoptions from its shelter for homeless animals. Also last year, the Norfolk SPCA’s walk-in veterinary clinic saw more than 10,000 animals.
So c’mon, fellas. It’s for the kittens.
Men interested in this opportunity to pose and help homeless pets at the same time must submit an application by Sunday, April 30 and attend auditions on Sunday, May 21, 2017. For the application, click here.
