2018 Orioles Pet Calendar benefiting BARCS

Thursday, November 2nd - Sunday, December 31st
available online on the Orioles website

The ninth annual Orioles pet calendar is on sale now with all proceeds benefiting the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), a nonprofit shelter that accepts and cares for all animals in need. The 16-month calendar, presented by Pet+E.R., includes photos of Orioles players with their pets and various BARCS animals. This year's calendar features BRAD BRACH, DYLAN BUNDY, CHRIS DAVIS, CALEB JOSEPH, KEVIN GAUSMAN, MYCHAL GIVENS, J.J. HARDY, MANNY MACHADO, TREY MANCINI, WADE MILEY, DARREN O'DAY, JOEY RICKARD, CHRIS TILLMAN, MARK TRUMBO, as well as manager BUCK SHOWALTER. The 2018 calendar will be available on for $15, at Oriole Park, and the Orioles Team Store in the York Galleria in York, Pa.

Over the past eight years, the Orioles have helped to raise more than $256,000 for BARCS, including nearly $77,000 through Orioles pet calendar sales in 2016-17. The largest companion animal shelter in Maryland, BARCS takes in more than 11,000 dogs and cats and 1,000 wildlife and other small mammals annually. On any given day, BARCS cares for 250 or more dogs and cats in the shelter, and an additional 2,000 animals in foster care annually.
