Why Vote for Charleston Firefighter Calendar Models?

Charleston Firefighter Calendar Saves Animals

This is the final week to vote for the 2017 Charleston Firefighter Calendar models.  The top 15 fundraisers will earn a spot in the calendar and you get to decide who makes the cut.

The Firefighter Calendar Models are more than pretty faces. They go above and beyond to help animals in our community.  They volunteer many hours to organize fundraisers, secure sponsorships, raise money for Toby’s Fund through photo shoots, calendar signings, and the Calendar Debut Party and community appearances.

After working 70+ hours a week to save human lives, these firefighters are volunteering considerable time to save animal lives. Here’s a great example. Last week we were shooting a Sponsorship Video and Firefighter Justin Iverson and Captain Dustin Ford graciously spent time on their day off filming with us. In short, these hometown heroes are pet owners and animal lovers and they donate countless hours to the cause.

“These Firefighters are committed and without them, we couldn’t save lives at the capacity that we do.” said Caroline Toepperwein, Charleston Animal Society’s Director of Special Projects and Firefighter Calendar Producer.

Every time animal abuse and neglect is detected in our community, Charleston Animal Society is there to help. Providing the medical care these animals need is the first step in finding a loving home to adopt them and helps Charleston Animal Society sustain its No Kill Community.  This calendar is critical to their survival.
