The New York Islanders shot their 2020 America’s Vet Dogs calendar yesterday producing the best kind of content: hockey players and dogs.

My favorite day of the year is when the New York Islanders shoot their America’s VetDogs calendar. Yesterday, they gathered the team at the practice rink and brought in the dogs for some amazing content.

For the past four years, the Islanders have been doing these calendars to help raise money for America’s VetDogs, based out of St. James, New York. What they do is raise puppies and train them to be service dogs for veterans and anyone else who may need a service dog.

It costs upwards of $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place just one assistance dog. VetDogs, who provided no charge to the person in need, is able to get their funding from donations.

Two years ago, when Mitch and I did our first live show, we were able to work with America’s VetDogs and help raise some money for them. Going out to their facility and seeing what they do was such a treat for me.

They are genuinely good people who just love what they do, and it’s for such an amazing cause. These calendars are set to come out on Black Friday, just in time for the holiday season. Make sure to pick one up for your favorite Islander and puppy loving relative or friend this holiday season.

This year, the Islanders have a new puppy that they are training as Radar is very close to finishing his training. You can vote on what they name this new puppy right here.

Now, enjoy the puppies and this A-1 content:
