Since 1993, the team behind the Firefighters Calendar in Australia has been doing photoshoots each year.

The photo series are compiled into calendars, whose sales profits usually go to the Children’s Hospital Foundation Burns Unit.

This year, they decided to change it up, and partnered with the RSPCA to raise awareness about caring and protecting for animals in need of a home.

All the firemen in the shoot posed with adorable little puppies on loan from the shelter, and made the whole thing look all the more fantastic and playful.

Of course, this isn’t the first time organizations have paired up with animals to make a statement or to support a higher cause.

Those of other professions have posed with dogs in their own calendars to raise awareness about animals in need of saving.

Traditionally, proceeds from the sale of these calendars go toward the Children’s Hospital Foundation Burns Unit, and other regional charities.

This year, however, they decided to change it up and partner with the RSPCA, a nonprofit organization that works to prevent animal cruelty, and promotes care and protection for animals.

All of these beautiful pups are up for adoption.

The proceeds will be split with the RSPCA, who will use the extra funds to improve the operation of shelters, educate communities, and work on further fund-raising efforts.
