8th Annual Credit Union of Denver Dog & Cat Calendar for 2021!
A big THANK YOU to everyone who submitted images and voted! Once again, we were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and enthusiastic participation. The top 14 voted pictures will grace the 13 months in the calendar and the 1 photo with the most votes will get the coveted cover and have unlimited bragging rights! The Votes are in and we have a cover pet! Unfortunately, you will have to wait for the printed calendar to see who won and which pet will be on the different months!
However, due to the incredible response (239 photos), we will include a large Honorable Mentions section, so be sure to look out for your pet(s) in the printed calendar!
This is a community project made with the shared love we have for our pets and knowing the importance of supporting those who care for the animals locally and in our beautiful state. The C·U·D Pet Calendar is our annual charity project that helps raise much needed funds for Foothills Animal Shelter.
The calendars will be available for purchase in the beginning of November and will be $10 each. We will send out an email letting you know when they have arrived. This year we are offering Free Shipping, so if you would like us to mail them to you, please call us at 303.239.1150 or 800.279.3288. All the proceeds will be donated to the Foothills Animal Shelter.
Here is a little information from The Foothills Animal Shelter website to understand why we do this every year.
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.
Years Past – Look how far we’ve come
So far, Credit Union of Denver members and our community have donated a total of $121,223.67 to Foothills Animal Shelter. Our hope is to continue this tradition for years to come. Below are some of the previous calendar’s cover pets!
Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) is the brand under which America’s Credit Unions raise funds for their local children’s hospital. Over the past 23 years, credit unions have raised an incredible $185 million. Credit unions raise funds by engaging their communities, members, and employees. This has allowed them to make an immense impact for millions of children every single year. 100% of the donations go directly to the children’s hospital in your community.
Yet, our fight to end childhood illness is not over. We still need you. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are treating over 10 million children a year, and on behalf of these kids and their families please consider making a donation.
Please consider donating using Credit Union of Denver’s fundraising page. The fund raising page is still open. We were able to raise $125 in just a few days. Thank you to all who donated! Every little bit makes a difference.
