It’s that time of year again 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 to be considered for our annual wall calendar. We especially need seasonal photos, and some suited for holidays, like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, July 4, etc. For each month in the 2023 calendar, a rescued Miniature Schnauzer(s) will be featured.

Calendars will be available for purchase beginning Saturday, October 1st at our annual ‘Bark in the Park‘ dog alumni reunion.  All proceeds will go directly to support MSRNT’s work of saving Miniature Schnauzers and finding forever homes for these deserving dogs.

PHOTO SUBMISSION PROCESS

  1. Complete online form with details about your rescued Schnauzer (below).
