Pet ’n Nanny has created a 2016 calendar of its customers and their pets. The calendar will sell for $10, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Coalition to Unchain Dogs, a nonprofit organization that helps improve the welfare of dogs and their living environments, specifically in under-served areas of the Triangle.

The professional pet-sitting company is hosting a Calendar Unveiling Party on Thursday, Nov. 12, from 6-8 p.m. in historic downtown Wake Forest at Communicopia, 135 S. White St. The public is invited to enjoy free drinks, appetizers and desserts and meet some of the featured pet parents in the calendar. The calendar will also be available for purchase.

“Our partnership with the Coalition inspired the creation of the calendar, which captures some of the pets we care for with their pet parents. It features pet holidays and pet-themed months and makes a great gift for pet enthusiasts living in and around the Wake Forest community,” said Certified Professional Pet Sitter Shannon Arner, co-owner of Pet ’n Nanny with her husband, Gerry. “We’ve devoted time and resources to help the Coalition throughout this year, and we’re happy to have another project helping support the nonprofit.”

Earlier this year, Pet ’n Nanny donated funds to the Coalition by sponsoring a volunteer “fence build” and supplying doghouses for three dogs that were continuously chained outdoors at their home in Durham. In addition to building fences, the Coalition provides free services and supplies including wellness care, spay/neuter clinics, leashes and collars, flea and tick medication and vaccinations.
