We are happy to announce that the 2024 Credit Union of Denver Pet Calendars are on sale now!
They are just $10 each and all the proceeds go to Foothills Animal Shelter!
Thank you to all the members and community photo contributors that made our 2024 calendar so awesome! This calendar is truly a labor of love of animals. Our staff loves to help feature our furry friends each year to support our local animal shelter. Please help us raise the much-needed funds it takes to operate and care for the animals that find their way to the Foothills Animal Shelter.
We have highlighted stories, or Happy Tails, on each month in the calendar, showing how the shelter helps animals and impacts our community in a positive way.
One such story is about Pluto.
Here is what Foothills Animal Shelter had to say about him: “After being hit by a car, Pluto needed a series of surgeries to get back on his feet. Our Veterinary team partnered with veterinary specialists in the area to make sure Pluto got the care he needed, and a dedicated foster home provided months of rehabilitative care. With a new lease on life, Pluto bounded his way into a new home through our Adoption program. Thanks to your support, Pluto, and thousands like him, find the second chances they need through Foothills’ animal care programs.”
The calendars are available for purchase at our branches or if you would like us to ship them to you, give us a call at 303.234.1700 or 800.279.3288 and let us know how many calendars you would like to purchase, and we can ship them for $10 per calendar (shipping included). All of the proceeds from the calendar sales will be donated to Foothills Animal Shelter.
This is a great holiday gift idea that gives back and spotlights our member’s pets and the love of an awesome community we live in!
The Why Behind the Annual Pet Calendar
Making a difference in the lives of our community and members who reside here with their furry friends is important to us. We believe that supporting Foothills Animal Shelter can have a direct impact on our community. When one of the pets at Foothills Animal Shelter finds a fur-ever home, we know that the act of bringing in an unconditional loving animal affects the human just as much as the animal! We like to ask…Who Rescued Who?
This is most certainly a collaborative effort with our members and community. We ask our vendors to donate advertising dollars that help offset the cost of printing the calendar. So when you see an ad in the calendar, know they are supporting this paws-itively good cause and allows more of the proceeds to go to the shelter.
The pet photos are an outstanding way to share the joy that comes from owning a pet and helping to raise money for a great resource within our community. SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. We thank everyone who has been gracious enough to submit their photos of their beloved furry friends.
Supporting Foothills Animal Shelter and creating this calendar is a labor of love for us. We look forward to seeing all of your new pics! Just remember, this is only successful when you purchase a calendar from us when they go on sale in November.
Thank you to everyone who purchased a 2023 Pet Calendar! Thanks to your support we were able to make a donation of $5,256.36 to Foothills Animal Shelter this year!
Be sure to check out our video interviews with some of the pet owners and their pets that made the 2023 calendar!
Here is a little information from The Foothills Animal Shelter website to understand why we do this every year.
About Foothills Animal Shelter
Foothills Animal Shelter is an open-admissions facility, which means we never turn away an animal. We care for more than 9,200 orphaned cats, kittens, dogs, puppies and critters every year with a compassionate team of staff and volunteers. (Unfortunately, we cannot accept wild animals; they should be taken to organizations that specialize in their care.) We are a true community resource and offer a variety of services including pet adoption, Jefferson County pet licensing, affordable spaying and neutering, vaccinations, micro chipping and lost and found pets. We are committed to our important mission and the life-saving work that we do every day of the year.
