The Phillies have recently unveiled an 18-month Pet Calendar that features your favorite players posing with their four-legged friends. Players will be featured with their own pets and don't worry those without pets can be found cuddling adorable and adoptable animals courtesy of the Pennsylvania SPCA.
With net proceeds from the $15 calendar benefiting the Pennsylvania SPCA; the second oldest animal welfare organization in the nation and the largest and most comprehensive in Pennsylvania; everyone who purchases a calendar will help further the PSPCA mission to protect animals, prevent cruelty and improve the health and quality of life for animals in Pennsylvania.
As you flip through the pages of the 18-page Pet Calendar you will find players such as Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Carlos Ruiz, Cliff Lee and Kyle Kendrick along with Manager, Ryne Sandberg and everyone's favorite mascot The Phillie Phanatic!
On the cover, Chase Utley shines with his best friend and PSPCA success story, Jack. Jack was rescued by the PSPCA from one a large scale dogfighting bust in Philadelphia before he was adopted by Chase and his wife Jen. Their love of Jack and respect for the work and values of the PSPCA led them to align themselves with the organization and to the creation of events and fundraisers to support the PSPCA. In fact, their love of animals led them to the creation of The Utley Foundation whose mission is to educate the community on the proper treatment of animals and raise funds for the fight against animal neglect, pain and suffering.
The Utley's and other player's advocacy on the behalf of animals made creating a pet calendar, the second of its kind, an easy decision.
