The OSCAS 2020 calendar features old Singapore Specials as the theme is “Senior Dogs Rock”. Designed in a movie blockbuster poster style and each page features a doggie “grandma” or “grandpa”. Super cute!

Hamster Society Singapore Singapore 2020 calendar
More of a fan of tiny furry little hamsters? Hamster Society Singapore are selling their calendars for $15. It’s the only one that is priced higher than $10, but it could be because it includes the price of normal mail.
If you move fast and are one of the first 50 orders, you will receive 2 postcards featuring photos from the calendar.
Self collection is also possible on 21st December at Pets Day Out 2019.
Proceeds go to: All the hamsters who are fostered and taken care of by HSS

[To be updated] SPCA 2020 calendar
SPCA is no stranger to any Singaporean. They are arguably the biggest animal welfare group in Singapore and they run a shelter that keeps cats, dogs and small animals.
SPCA has listed a 2020 calendar on their website for ordering but the design looks unconfirmed at the moment. It will likely feature 12 stories of their cats, dogs and animals so if you’d like a calendar that features not just cats or dogs, you may want to wait it out for SPCA’s 2020 calendar.
We will update when we know more about it!
Proceeds go to: SPCA’s shelter expenses
How to order: Go to SPCA’s online “shop” and place and order. Do note that a minimum of $20 is required and there’s also a courier fee of $5. The good thing is, you can pay by credit card or through PayPal.
So, think about which design you like and which cause you want to support. While you’re at it, why not gift these animal welfare calendars to your friends and family during the upcoming festive season too?
