Get Your 2013 Dogs Deserve Better Calendar Now

Calendar Banner

By purchasing a DDB calendar, you give yourself or a loved one a gift that brings smiles all year long.

Welcome to the Eighth Annual Dogs Deserve Better Calendar, which gets rave reviews by everyone who buys or reads it. We brought on ace designer Tracy Copes of Daft Deneration to make our calendar stunning for the fourth year in a row.

We've compiled 28 dog rescue stories for you—all Happy Ending of course—and you'll come to know the dogs in a new way as you read their touching stories each month!

We had a great time pulling together a gorgeous, full color calendar, and an especially good time designing 5 covers for you to choose our winning cover model. Thanks to your votes, Buster was the winner with 762 votes! Never fear, though, all of our gorgeous calendar cover model contestants will appear somewhere within our calendar—they will all get their time in the sun!

Calendars ship as early as November 21, 2012.


We are the only calendar to focus solely on chained and penned dog rescue stories, so don't miss out! Our stories are vibrant, our photos are gorgeous and fun . . . The calendar is full color throughout, and features stories of 28 rescued dogs, each different, each heart-warming, each happy-ending. Full-page stories are complete with before and after photos, while bottom stories feature smaller, after photos with a story.

Can't wait to read more about Buster, Cowboy, Diesel, Baylee and 24 others? Wait, there's more...

The calendar also features 14 Months as opposed to the normal 12, and includes December 2012, for you early birds, and January 2014, for those of us who procrastinate about buying a new one, or getting it hung up once we have it.

We offer price breaks at 5, 10, and 20 calendars. If you'd like to help us fundraise by selling higher quantities please contact us for information. (Or, if you're a smaller rescue who'd like to sell them or give them away with your adoption packets, please contact us for even deeper discounts.)

Education can and does work with many people! Even when we don't see immediate payoff for our efforts, rest assured we are making progress, one educational block at a time. Displaying a Dogs Deserve Better calendar in your home or office is just one more way to educate those around you...So pick some up for friends and family as holiday gifts this year, and start an educational wave!
