Cleveland Indians Help Animals in Need with 2017 Pet Calendar

Share with fellow dog lovers!


The 2016 World Series is underway, and while only time will tell what the future holds for the history of the Cleveland Indians, the major league baseball team has already won the admiration of animal lovers for helping to create a better future for dogs and cats who have been thrown a curve ball in life.

Progressive Field, the home of the Cleveland Indians, serves as a backdrop for players who pitch the option of pet adoption in the 2017 Indians Pet Calendar. The following animal-loving athletes stepped in front of a camera on the pitcher’s mound, in the dugout and in the stands, posing with tail-wagging members of their own home team and some adorable four-legged fans from Friendship Animal Protective League.

  • Cody Anderson
  • Michael Brantley
  • Yan Gomes
  • Corey Kluber
  • Francisco Lindor
  • Tyler Maquin
  • Zach McAllister
  • Mike Napoli
  • Carlos Santana
    …and more!

Proceeds from sales of the $21 calendar will benefit Cleveland Indians Charities, Cleveland Animal Protective League and Friendship Animal Protective League. Founded in 1957, the non-profit humane society in Elyria, Ohio is the largest animal shelter in Lorain County.

Baseball buffs can fetch the recently unleashed pet calendar in the Indians’ Progressive Field team store and at Friendship Animal Protective League’s online store.

The Cleveland Indians recently unveiled pages from the pet calendar on Twitter:

Almost makes me feel bad for rooting for the Cubs. I might have changed my allegiance if they would have been posing with cats.
