The 6th edition Kittendales Calendar to benefit the Hull Seaside Animal Rescue in Hull, MA is now on sale. Local men from all walks of life pose for beefcake shots with kittens and cats from the shelter for the annual fundraiser.
The calendar is a 100% volunteer effort, with all monies going to the shelter, Photographer Joanne Berman volunteers her talents, and the modeling, and production of the calendars are all done by volunteers. This year’s models include a Marine, a personal trainer, a boxer, a correction officer, a dentist and a construction worker.
The calendar is a major fundraiser for the no-kill shelter, which rescues cats and places them in homes, and runs a feral cat TNR program. Sales of last year’s calendars raised about $15,000, the highest amount since the Kittendales calendar was first released in 2007.

Hull Seaside Animal Rescue is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which rescues and places homeless cats and assists in the care and control of the local feral cat population of Hull and surrounding towns in Massachusetts. Hull Seaside Animal Rescue, a no-kill shelter, was founded in 1999 by a handful of concerned citizens that understood the need to establish an animal rescue and shelter program. Since the organization opened its doors, homes for hundreds of cats have been found and over 500 feral cats have been neutered. Residents are cared for by a group of volunteers that see to their every need. The shelter exists solely on donations and fundraising events with a small part of the shelter’s revenues coming from volunteer organized bottle and can collection and redemption.
