Work began in November on the calendars, which are now available for sale to the public for $5 each. All proceeds from the sales will be divided among the six K-9 teams for the purchase of equipment.
There are 1,000 calendars available, according to hospital communications Director Brian Allen.
In addition to being available from each K-9 handler, the calendars can be purchased at the East Liverpool, East Palestine, St. Clair Township and Wellsville police departments; the county sheriff's department at both the civil and criminal offices; Wellsville Fire Department; Ann's Superette in Glenmoor; Chef Ray's and Tim Horton's in Calcutta; East Palestine Village Hall; Bea's Insurance Agency and Endia Wisser Photography, both in East Palestine; and at the Humane Society of Columbiana County in Salem. PC Doctors on Fifth Street in East Liverpool is also selling the calendars and will donate an additional $1 to the K-9 teams for each calendar sold at the store.
