Katy, TX News (June 5, 2017) – Special Pals, Inc., a no-kill animal shelter serving the Katy/West Houston community, is searching for 13 area first responders to be featured in our 2018 Red White & Rescue calendar.
The calendar will include male and female first responders from the Katy/West Houston/Fulshear areas along with pets from the shelter. Special consideration will be given to first responders who currently own a pet adopted from Special Pals.
“Our goal for this calendar is to raise funds and awareness for Special Pals,” said Melissa Houser, member of the Board of Directors. “We also want to recognize our local first responders who bravely protect our communities every day. They work hard to save human lives while we work hard to save animal lives.”
Each first responder featured in the calendar will have their own professional photo shoot with a shelter pet, either one currently available for adoption or a pet the first responder previously adopted from Special Pals. Participants should wear the uniform (formal or casual) of the agency they represent.
Those interested in participating should email two high-quality photos (one full length photo and one headshot) along with their contact information (name, email, cell phone, and agency represented) to Melissa Houser at email@example.com. There is no fee to apply or participate.
