More than a dozen Chattanooga firefighters are being featured with their pets in a calendar that is on sale now. The calendars were developed by Wally's Friends Spay & Neuter Clinic and Miki Boni Studios. Eileen Price, executive director of Wally's Friends, said 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the calendars will be used to purchase resuscitation equipment for cats and dogs rescued from structure fires. "Our goal is to equip each fire apparatus with three sizes of pet resuscitation masks," said Ms.
Price. "We think the initial cost to do that will be around $5,000."
Fire Chief Phil Hyman is grateful for the help. "We were surprised when Eileen and Miki approached us about selling a calendar," said Chief Hyman. "As far as I know, we've never done anything like this before, but we can certainly put that pet rescue equipment to good use if we get it."
