2017 LAKELAND FIREFIGHTER CALENDAR TO BENEFIT SPCA FLORIDA

Partnership for Pets

A major highlight of the partnership between both organizations has been the Rescued Pets Calendar. Proceeds go directly to helping rescued animals in Lakeland.

Last year’s calendar was a great success, generating nearly $10,000 to pay for the medical care of animals encountered on human emergency scenes by the Lakeland Fire Department and treated at SPCA Florida’s McClurg Medical Center. Additionally, the funds raised allowed for the purchase of new animal oxygen masks to replace existing masks for Lakeland Fire Department apparatus.

The annual calendar is a fun and philanthropic cornerstone of the partnership. It is a great way for SPCA Florida to expand on its mission of helping animals while the Lakeland Fire Department can show its compassion and care for all of the living creatures in its community.

Firefighters featured in the calendar and SPCA Florida representatives are available for interviews. Please contact each respective organization’s communication contact for more information.
