Just in time for the holiday season, the Detroit Red Wings have once again teamed up with PetSmart to present the 2022 Pucks for Paws Calendar featuring photos of Red Wings players and personalities with their furry friends. A portion of the proceeds from each purchase will benefit PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare programs in North America, and the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, which provides opportunity and access to hockey for thousands of children in Detroit.
“I think the pet calendar is a great idea to help raise funds and awareness,” said Red Wings alternate captain Marc Staal. “I love my dog. He makes each day a little brighter. The photo shoot was a fun experience to support dog adoption and help pets find a home.”
In addition to the $20 calendar, a limited number of official Pucks for Paws collars, bandanas, and leashes are also available for purchase. The merchandise makes great gifts – and now, favorite pets can show their love for the Red Wings and support two worthy causes.
“My wife and I rescued our dog, and he is part of our family,” said Red Wings defenseman Jordan Oesterle. “It’s great when you can support a cause to take dogs off the street, get rescued and find a home.”
Calendars and merchandise are on sale from November 15 through January 31, 2022 and can be purchased at DetroitRedWings.com/PucksforPaws.
