MSRNT NEEDS YOUR PHOTOS FOR 2021 MINIATURE SCHNAUZER CALENDAR

 

GREAT ‘SHELTER IN PLACE’ ACTIVITY

PHOTO SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 31, 2020

We’re all looking for things to do while we ‘Shelter in Place’.  This is a great time to take pictures of your adorable Miniature Schnauzer to be considered for the 2021 calendar!   So, it’s time to get creative.  Catch your pet in cute poses—indoors or outdoors, in a costume or in their natural coat—and send them to us.  MSRNT creates an annual wall calendar as a major fundraiser, showcasing dogs adopted from our rescue group. For each month in the 2021calendar, a rescued Miniature Schnauzer(s) will be featured. 

Calendars will be available for purchase beginning Saturday, Oct. 10 at our annual ‘Bark in the Park’ dog alumni reunion (mark your calendars).  All proceeds will go directly to support MSRNT’s work of saving Miniature Schnauzers and finding forever homes for these deserving dogs.
