The calendar also featured dogs that have been helped by the humane society, Sales of the 2020 dog park calendar netted almost $6,000 for the humane society, which is the oldest no-kill shelter in Will County and runs solely on donations..

Calendars will be sold online at WillCountyDogs.org via preorders from Aug. 17 Friday, Nov. 13. Orders will be shipped the week of Nov. 30 to ensure they are received in time for the holidays.

Calendars will cost $15 each, which includes shipping and taxes, and approximately $10 from each calendar sold will be donated to the humane society.

Dogs being considered for the calendar must: have a current Forest Preserve District of Will County dog park permit, be socialized to humans and other dogs, current on rabies vaccinations, and able to follow basic commands during the photo shoot.

Applicants will be notified by Aug. 28, if their dog was selected for a photo shoot and inclusion in the calendar.
