Firefighters and kittens — is there a cuter combination?
The dynamic duo comes together in a 2017 calendar released in Langley, with proceeds going to benefit animals, of course.
The Township of Langley Firefighters Charitable Society, in partnership with the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS), has put together a 2017 calendar featuring Langley firefighters with their dogs as well as some firefighters with recently rescued kittens.
The $20 calendar — now available at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter and the Murrayville fire hall — was a pet project of Township firefighter Steve McLay (featured in the calendar with his rescue dog) and staff at LAPS.
“We have had a lot of fun working on this calendar so we are pretty excited that these are available now for everyone,” said McLay, who works out of Murrayville fire hall.
Longtime LAPS volunteers Trav and Ash of Trav+Ash Photography did the photography for the calendar, volunteering their talents to produce some amazing moments.

LAPS staff member Rebecca Noort said the calendar would make a great Christmas gift, with proceeds going to help the animals that come to the shelter and the chosen charities of the Firefighters Charitable Society.
“We’ve made lots of copies, so we are really hoping the community supports this calendar,” Noort said.
The calendars are available at the main Fire Hall #6 in Murrayville (22170 50 Ave.) and at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter (26220 56 Ave).
