Firefighters strike a pose with animals in need

Local fire department, Black Dog Rescue create calendar for charitable causes

Cheyenne firefighters have announced they will be producing their first calendar. Filled with chiseled abs and cute dogs, the firefighters have teamed up with Black Dog Rescue to publish the calendar.

The original goal for Black Dog Rescue was to raise $10,000 though due to high demand they’ve raised their goal to $20,000.

The publicity has raised awareness toward Black Dog Rescue and the animals. The calendar will not get individual animals adopted but the awareness created through the event will help tremendously.

Each calendar will cost 20 dollars and are available for purchase at the Cheyenne Fire Department headquarters , located at 415 W. 18th St., and at Black Dog Rescue.

Fifteen firefighters will be featured in the calendar with the animals of Black Dog Rescue. Half the proceeds from calendar sales will go towards Black Dog Rescue while the other half will return to the Cheyenne Fire Department, which they will then donate to Laramie County Coats for Kids.  

 

About Logan Harrison (41 Articles)
My name is Logan Harrison, I am 21 years old. I was born in the great city of Minot, North Dakota. My father had been sent to the Minot Air Force base, where we lived for four years after I was born. In the year 2000, my father was reassigned to the the F.E. Warren Air Force Base where we ended up staying in smelly, outdated air force housing for three or four years until we moved off the base. I attended Anderson Elementary school and then enrolled into the East High system where I attended Carey Jr. High for three years. After graduating from East High in 2014, I received a scholarship to Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington, Wyoming, to compete on the golf team. During my time there we went to back-to-back National Championships and took second in the region my freshman year, and during my sophomore season we won the Region IX title. I always love a good meal with good company, and I enjoy hanging out and talking with friends and family. I will never pass up an opportunity to pet a dog or any pet. This past winter I took a trip to St. Thomas Island in the Virgin Islands where I stayed with a friend of mine and worked as a kayak guide for seven weeks. That whole experience is something I encourage everyone to do. Get out of your comfort zone and explore a new environment, culture, food, and activities. I went kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking almost everyday. The highlight of my time there was scuba diving, swimming with sharks and exploring an old shipwreck. The ocean is surprisingly very peaceful and magical when you finally reach the bottom. The whole experience taught me that life doesn't actually start until you reach the end of your comfort zone.
