There’s no better season for activism than summer. This week, for example, you can buy adorable animal calendars to support pet adoption, embrace disabled-friendly recreation at a fair complete with rock-climbing wall and ice cream or tee off to support your local Habitat for Humanity.

No-Kill Initiative Calendar Sale
July 15-Aug. 1

Utah FACES is a nonprofit dedicated to making sure Salt Lake County’s pets find a home away from the shelter. This year, the organization is creating a calendar to help fund their no-kill initiative, and now is the time to get in on the ground floor of this charitable venture by submitting $10 with your pet’s photo for the 2011 calendar. The first 700 submissions are guaranteed to be in the calendar, and one of them will earn the coveted cover spot. Yes, pets! No kill!
