A handful of Galveston firefighters gathered Saturday at Central Station on their day off to hold and pet adoptable animals from the Galveston Island Humane Society and pose shirtless for the annual “Heroes & Hounds” calendar.
It’s the sixth year the Galveston Firefighters Association and the humane society have teamed up for the calendar. All proceeds from the calendar benefit the humane society.
This year the humane society is featuring adoptable animals that have been at the shelter for a while or have special needs, like Coco, who has Megaesophagus, a manageable condition that requires every meal to be fed with him sitting upright, animal health supervisor Katrina Ross, said.
The “Heroes & Hounds” calendars will be available in November, but can be pre-ordered on the humane society’s website.
