Christmas is almost here, and then soon after, 2013 will begin! The new year means a fresh start, new goals, and another year of helping animals every day. One of the many important things that we can do to help animals is to adopt them from shelters rather than buying from breeders. Breeders and puppy mills raise little pups in cramped and dirty conditions and then sometimes ship them hundreds of miles with inadequate shelter, food, and water.

Get a copy of our 2013 “Rescued” calendar and remind yourself and others of the importance of rescuing animals from shelters. The calendar begins by describing many of the victories that PETA and our international affiliates won in 2012. Each month features adorable pictures of rescued animal who got a second chance at life!
