What could be better than a bunch of heroic hot dudes taking their clothes off for shelter pets? Exactly.
Dallas photographer Ricki Beason got the idea for her "Heartthrobs and Hound Dogs" calendar last year. She already volunteers her time to take photos of shelter dogs — but she wanted to help even more.
"My passion for rescue dogs began six years ago when I got my first rescue of my own, Blue," Beason told The Dodo. "I want to help save as many dog's lives that I can with my photography … Last year I started the Heartthrobs and Hound Dogs Calendar, featuring firemen cuddling adorable dogs, in an effort to reach beyond the borders of Dallas."
