A photogenic pup from Vernon has beaten the odds to grace a page in a high-profile fundraising calendar.
Rose, a Jack Russell mix, loves to swim, and even has her own driver’s licence.
Rose has been selected from more than 40,000 entries to star in a calendar that will support pets and pet parents in need.
An adorable photo of Rose on a paddle board, submitted by her owner, Michael, is featured for the month of June in the 2024 Companions for Change calendar.
Getting into the calendar was a highly competitive process with numerous selection rounds and the top 100 finalists going to a public vote.
In addition to Rose, the calendar contains photos of 16 Canadian pets including dogs, cats, a KuneKune piglet, guinea pigs and a hedgehog.
The calendar is available in all Bosley’s by Pet Valu stores across B.C. for a give-what-you-can donation.
One hundred per cent of the donations go to Pet Valu’s Companions for Change initiatives which have raised more than $26 million to support Canadian animal rescues and charities across Canada since 2010.
