From adorable adoptables to the four-legged family members the animal-loving athletes play ball with on their own home teams, photogenic Fidos and felines struck poses with such players as Marion Byrd, Ryan Howard, Cliff Lee, Ben Revere, Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Ruiz, with manager Ryne Sandberg and mascot The Phillies Phanatic also getting in the game to help the paws cause.
Smiling on the cover alongside his high-profile pet parent Chase Utley (whose dogged devotion toward animals led him to found The Chase Utley Foundation), Jack was happy to help companion animals in the care of the humane organization which helped him find his famous forever father– The Pennsylvania SPCA.
All of the net proceeds from the $15 Philadelphia Phillies pet calendar will benefit The Pennsylvania SPCA, which protects animals from acts of cruelty, strives to end the problem of pet overpopulation through public education and low-cost spay/neuter clinics, and offers a new lease on life to homeless companion animals.
