Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2006
Every dog has its day. But beginning next year, 16 colorful calendar months will be dedicated to the New Orleans SPCA dogs.
Doggie’s Angel, an organization committed to the rescue of homeless animals, has created a unique dog calendar featuring some truly winning canines. Doggie’s Angel will contribute 60% of the net proceeds from calendar sales to SPCA Louisiana for the benefit of animals displaced a year ago by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, according to Vincenza Blescia, founder and executive producer.
In New Orleans, 8,500 pets were displaced as Hurricane Katrina devastated the city. Those animals were left to fend for themselves in the flooded streets as overwhelmed volunteers, in desperate need of water, food and medical supplies, rescued as many as they could. Blescia, driven by her enormous passion and love for animals, decided that she had to do something to help these suffering, displaced pets.
“Our mission at Doggie’s Angel,” said Blescia, “is to create unique, exciting and innovative products in order to raise as much money as possible for unfortunate animals that are abandoned, lost, or mistreated. The calendar is the first in our line of products.”
Doggie’s Angel is not the usual canine calendar. It has been designed to compete with the famous Pirelli calendar, with images that are a mix of erotic and artistic, raising the Doggie’s Angel to a level far above the typical pinup calendar. Doggie’s Angel is a celebration of feminine beauty, presented through the eyes of seven acclaimed photographers: Lionel Deluy, Suza Scalora, Shun & Heideki, Francis Hills, Jeff Xander, Daniel O'Neal, and Michael Maples. These gifted photographers, working with a gorgeous model, have created images that define the very ideal of beauty.
“This is a one of a kind calendar,” underscored Blescia. “There is great freedom. The images were created with no rules, no stereotypes. The photo shoot was an experience where everything flowed and was very natural.”
Doggie’s Angel is well on its way to becoming a cult object for people who love animals, photography and beauty.
