As you might know, the Islanders teamed up with North Shore Animal League to create a fundraising calendar to benefit the animal shelter. The photo shoot to populate the calendar was, of course, adorable.
There’s a happy and almost inevitable coda to the story: After taking photos with his assigned pup in the morning, Islanders defenseman Calvin de Haan and his lady returned that evening to adopt the pooch.
Here’s "behind the scenes" video of the shoot:
North Shore Animal League professes to be the world's largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. Look for the calendar in time for the holidays.
