Pick up a copy of Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) 2014 Celebrity Pet Calendar, and you’ll find Kerri Walsh Jennings posing proudly as Ms. November with a small white dog named Kleo. (Kleo is not Walsh Jennings’ pet but a dog rescued from a shelter.) The former Oakland A’s manager La Russa founded ARF with his wife Elaine in the early ’90s as a no-kill shelter that would help find homes for stray and abandoned animals as well as provide spay and neuter services to the larger community.
Other sports figures in this year’s calendar include San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, racecar driver Danica Patrick, and Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick.
