Canines and kitties who are counting the days until they find forever pet parents can look forward to a better tomorrow thanks to the Carolina Panthers’ 2014 “Puppies, Panthers and Kittens…Oh, My!” calendar.
An idea initiated by Stephanie Rivera, the wife of Carolina Panthers’ Head Coach Ron Rivera, the pet calendar features the pair with their own four-pawed pals as well as cheerleaders and the following Fido-and feline-loving football stars, who posed with the tail-wagging members of their own home team as well as adorable adoptables who are hoping to score a touchdown in the hearts of forever pet parents:
Charles Godfrey (who smiled for the camera alongside his canine companion, a bulldog fittingly dubbed Carolina)
Ryan Kalil (who posed with a chihuahua who was rescued form a puppy mill)
Cam Newton (who shares the calendar’s cover with an adoptable puppy and kitten)
Hoping to raise $50,000 for the paws cause, proceeds from the calendar will benefit the Humane Society of Charlotte, a non-profit organization which provides comfort and care to approximately 3,000 companion animals each year.
