ARF Unleashes 2015 Celebrity Pet Calendar

Stepping up to the plate to help dogs and cats who are counting the days until they find their forever families, baseball icon Tony La Russa’s animal welfare organization ARF has just unleashed a calendar that knocks it out of the ballpark through a winning combination of photogenic Fidos, famous faces and philanthropy.

The high-profile pals to those with paws who have posed with their pets for the 2015 calendar are:

  • Supermodel/role model Kathy Ireland (this year’s cover girl, along with cover canine, Sparky)
  • Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen
  • New York Times best-selling author Kris Carr
  • Actress Taylor Spreitler from the ABC Family series Melissa & Joey
  • Actor/TV host Mario Lopez
  • Two-time Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes
  • Pro football analyst Peter King
  • Actress Alicia Witt (Justified, Twin Peaks, Friday Night Lights)
  • The Weather Channel’s Sam Champion
  • 12-time Olympic medalist Dara Torres
  • New York Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford
  • Two-time Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman
  • Country crooner David Nail

The 9.5″ x 12″5 calendars are available for a $15 donation to Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), which was established in 1991 by the sports legend and his wife to help save the lives of dogs and cats who find themselves facing their fate in kill shelters, offer support to animal welfare groups across the country, and instill a passion for compassion in the next generation through a variety of educational programs.
