Inspired by last year’s success, Dogs Run Free of Nevada County celebrates its third anniversary with the release of the 2015 Dog Park Calendar.

Sponsored by local businesses, the 12-month calendar features professional photographs of dogs playing at the dog park. All profits from calendar sales go to dog park operations including purchase of supplies, maintenance, repairs, insurance, and other costs.

The calendar may be purchased:

— Every Saturday starting in October, from 9-11 a.m. at the dog park, located in Condon Park, 660 Minnie St., Grass Valley. Cost is $10.

— At the Dogs Run Free website, Cost is $12 including postage, payable through PayPal;

— At the dog park any time by completing a form and attaching payment. Cost is $12 including postage. Put check/cash and order form in Donation Drop Box. Volunteers will send you your calendar.

Calendar photography was donated by Bob White. Sponsors include: Best Friends Animal Clinic, Brunswick Veterinary Hospital, Empire Kennels, Incredible Pets, Furry Friends Pet Groomers, Pine Creek Veterinary Clinic, Plaza Tire and Auto Service, Reed’s Locksmithing, Scraps Dog and Cat Nutrition, and SPD Markets.

“These calendars make great holiday gifts or stocking stuffers,” said Andie Reed, board president of Dogs Run Free. “We estimate 50 to 100 dogs visit the dog park every day. It is exciting if their humans can find their own dogs in the calendar, but anyone will enjoy the wonderful photos of the dog park activity.”

Last year Dogs Run Free almost ran out of calendars.

“This year we printed more, and got started selling much earlier,” said Reed.

Opened in 2011, Dogs Run Free off-leash dog park is 1.7 full-fenced acres of Ponderosa pines and scrub oaks. It has a separate small/shy dog area, potable water and buckets for drinking year-round and a doggie pool area for swimming in the heat of the summer. Dogs Run Free is open daily sunup to sundown at no charge to the general public and is maintained entirely by volunteers and donations. Dogs Run Free is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
