We all know cats can get themselves into some interesting positions. So, clearly they’d be better at yoga than a lot of humans! This 12” by 12” calendar of felines in amusing yoga poses is sure to inspire you each month.
Tiny Dog Desk Calendar
This calendar is as small as the dogs in it. Published annually by Dallas photographer Tessa Berg, it fits in a CD case. But the sweet photos of little dogs on each page will melt your heart — and sales go to benefit animal rescues.
World Wildlife Fund Calendar
This 16-month calendar features “spectacular photos of species and places where WWF works around the globe,” including a tiger, polar bear, rhinoceros, sea turtle and many more. The 14 3/16" wide by 10 7/8" high calendar is a gift from the organization for your donation to help with its conservation efforts.
If you know someone who’s addicted to reading the hilarious submissions at DogShaming.com, this calendar is the perfect gift. It’ll keep them laughing with more than 40 of the site’s funniest entries.
MOMA 2014 Animal Calendar
Instead of glossy photos, this set from the Museum of Modern Art features six different cutouts of white paper animals, each with a month’s calendar on each side. The artwork is made in Japan by designer Katsumi Tamura.
Another star made famous by the Internet has her very own calendar: Grumpy Cat. This has been a year of new merchandise from everyone’s favorite frowning feline, and now you can have 12 months worth of laughs from the kitty curmudgeon.
Of course, cats and dogs are adorable, but goats had quite a year in 2013. (Who can forget that epic screaming goats video?) How about celebrating it with a calendar dedicated to them?
Bloggers Love Dogs, and Cats
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.
ASPCA 2014 Special Edition Calendar
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.
Pit Bull Rescue Central’s Happy Endings
We’ll complete our list with the optimistic outlook of this calendar! Created by Pit Bull Rescue Central, each month features a photo of a rescued Pit Bull and his or her success story, as well as information about the rescue group and the breed. You also have the chance to customize the calendar when you order.
