The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe’s 2017 calendar features pets either adopted from HSTT or available for adoption.

TRUCKEE, Calif. December 12, 2016 – The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe’s 2017 calendar is now available for sale online and in stores. Each year the Humane Society endeavors to develop an inspired concept for the calendar. This year’s theme is “This is You When…”

“We strive to come up with something unique, original and clever every year,” said Dale Lawrence, development director, Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe. “We hope that we’ve accomplished our goal with the release of our 2017 ‘This is You When…’ calendar.”

The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe expresses deep gratitude to Albert Lewis of for taking a loosely formed idea and focusing it, literally, into a striking and funny study of what is imagined to go on inside a dog or cat’s mind. During this project, a sense of humor within every pet photographed was discovered. Each pet smiles, jumps, plays and, with enough imagination, even dances and laughs out loud. These animals expressing their love of life despite once being homeless and heartbroken, gives hope. The 2017 calendar aspires to evoke these same feelings in the viewer and hopefully make them laugh along the way.

Purchase calendars online at Calendars can also be purchased at Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe’s shelter located at 10961 Stevens Lane in Truckee, Burger Me, Canine Country Truckee, Mountain Hardware & Sports, Tahoe Integrative Veterinary Care, Truckee-Tahoe Pet Lodge and Wild Cherries Coffee House.

The high-quality, full-color 13-by-10.5-inch calendars are $20 each. Every dollar of calendar proceeds goes to saving and improving the lives of pets in the Truckee-Tahoe area and beyond.

About the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe and the Town of Truckee: The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe was founded in 1994 by a group of volunteers. Shortly after establishment, the Humane Society and the Town of Truckee became partners and together have become the driving force of animal welfare in our region through rescue, protection, and adoption. The partnership has continued to grow over the past two decades, solidifying a long-standing partnership in September of 2013 by opening the region’s first public animal shelter…together. This facility, located at 10961 Stevens Lane in Truckee, maximizes efficiency and effectiveness by housing the public and private entities under the same roof. 

The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe is saving 100 percent of the community’s adoptable homeless pets. In addition they rescue animals from overcrowded shelters whenever space allows.

Since opening the doors to their beautiful new shelter, they’ve increased their adoptions by 150 percent.
