A network of bloggers came together to create these 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" calendars of their own pets — one for cat people, and one for dog people. If you’re doing some last minute Christmas shopping, this is a great choice: you can download it instantly and print it out yourself. All proceeds go to the Humane Society of the United States.

This fundraising calendar features photos of animals who’ve been adopted by members of the ASPCA team, with success stories that will provide a daily reminder of the organization’s work to stop cruelty to animals. This year’s cover model, Deacon, was adopted by Jessica, who works for the ASPCA's Animal Poison Control Center, in 2010. She agreed to foster the abused 4-year-old Australian Shepherd, but wondered if he was “too far gone.” With a lot of love and patience, he came around. Jessica and her husband ended up adopting the now “goofy, sweet” dog.
