Australian Firefighters Are Once Again Posing With Animals For Their Annual Charity Calendar To Help The Wildlife Injured In The Fires
With 2022 coming to a close, now’s the time to look forward to 2023 filled with rescue puppies, dogs, and firefighters, together once again in the Australian Firefighters Calendars.
Celebrating 30 years, the Australian Firefighters 2023 Calendar continues to deliver what it does best – smokin’ hot calendars that help raise funds for numerous animal charities across Australia and the United States.
Over the years, more than 2.8 million dollars have been donated to animal charities by The Australian Firefighters Calendars, and with 2023 approaching fast, if you happen to need a calendar this might be the right way to get one and support animal charities as well. For more info, take a look at the Australian Firefighters Calendar website.
The calendars all feature firefighters from Down Under with dogs, cats, horses, and wild animals from rescue organizations. The dog calendar features the firefighters with rescue dogs from Safe Haven Animal Rescue and All Breeds Canine Rescue. The horse calendar features therapy horses from Healing Hooves. And all the cats for this year’s cat calendar were rescues from Best Friends Felines.

2. Matt with Thunder the blue-eyed kitten
Matt Ross was headed for a life in high finance working for one of Australia’s biggest banks but he soon wanted a career that was more community based. “Although the selection process for the fire service was long and extremely competitive, it was well worth the effort. In the fire service I have found a more community focused and fulfilling career,” Ross says. “Due to the serious nature of firefighting, I found it necessary to increase my overall fitness level to keep up with the rigours of the job.”

All Breed Canine Rescue Inc, The Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital, Healing Hooves, Safe Haven Animal Rescue and others will also receive proceeds.
