POA 2022 Calendar: Honoring the Helpers

November 16, 2021 @ 6:45AM — January 1, 2022 @ 12:00AM Eastern Time (US & Canada)

The Protectors of Animals calendar is back for its second year! For 2022, we've been inspired by the Mr. Rogers quote, "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'"

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


We are fortunate to have an amazing group of helpers right here in our animal rescue community. Whether it's feeding feral cat colonies, creating safe places for our pets to gather and be social, helping to find lost pets, championing animal rights, or offering hearts and homes to foster pets in need, we have a network of helpers that are empathetic, compassionate, and tenacious in their devotion to helping local animals. POA feels privileged to be in such amazing company. We hope you'll find inspiration, comfort, and joy in the stories of the 12 helpers featured in this year's calendar, though we know there are countless other individuals and organizations making huge differences in the lives of animals both in Connecticut and worldwide. Thanks for all you do.

We'd like to share a special thank you to:

- Our human models for all they do to make this world a better place and volunteering their time for us

- Christine Penney, for capturing the amazing photographs featured and for her endless energy devoted to creating a fabulous calendar

- Our Dog & Cat Team volunteers for coordinating the animals for the photo shoots

- Our gracious supporters: without you, our work would not be possible!

Calendars are $14 each including delivery. Donations are appreciated to cover printing and shipping costs and may be added when you review your order before checking out.

Thank you, and best wishes for a wonderful new year!
