Calendar Photo Contest


Does your rescued Schnauzer want to be a star?  Do you have an adorable photo of your Schnauzer?  Now is your chance to share it with other Schnauzer lovers and help MSRNT raise money.  As a major fundraiser, MSRNT is preparing for its annual wall calendar, showcasing dogs adopted from our rescue group. For each month in 2020 the calendar, a rescued Miniature Schnauzer will be featured.  

Calendars will be available for purchase beginning Saturday, Oct. 12 at our annual ‘Bark in the Park’ dog alumni reunion (mark your calendars), for a donation to MSRNT of $20.  All proceeds will go directly to support MSRNT’s work of saving Miniature Schnauzers and finding forever homes for these deserving dogs.
