Always ready to step up to the plate for a paws cause, members of the Baltimore Orioles will be pitching the option of adoption as they sign purchased copies of the 2014 Orioles Pet Calendar.
Baseball buffs can meet pup-loving players like Wei-Yin Chen, JJ Hardy, Nate McLouth, Troy Patton, Chris Tillman and Matt Wieters as well as adorable adoptable barking buddies and purring pals at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) on August 17th.
The calendar, which will soon be available for $15 on the Orioles official website, at the stadium and at Baltimore Animal Shelter, will feature Chris Davis, Miguel Gonzalez, Jim Johnson, Adam Jones, Manny Manchata, Nick Markakis, Nolan Reimold and Matt Wieters posing with the furry members of their home team as well as pets who are hoping to find forever homes.
Proceeds from calendar sales will benefit BARCS, a non-profit organization which helps more than 11,000 homeless animals each year.
When: August 17, 2013 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Where: Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) at 301 Stockholm Street in Baltimore, Maryland (overflow parking will be available at the M&T Bank Stadium’s Lot D)
