The sixth annual Orioles Pet Calendar benefitting the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) will go on sale August 12, and five players will be on-hand to sign calendars at the shelter that day.

J.J. Hardy, Tommy Hunter, David Lough, Bud Norris, and Matt Wieters will visit BARCS from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on August 12 to sign calendars bought that day. Those attending must buy their calendars on-site for autographs. There will be free parking at Lot D on the south side of M&T Bank Stadium.

The 16-month calendar features photos of Orioles players with their pets and BARCS animals at locations around Baltimore, including the National Aquarium, Fort McHenry, the Hippodrome Theatre, the U.S.S. Constellation, and the American Visionary Art Museum.

Calendars are available for $15 at the event August 12, or at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the Orioles Team Store in York, Penn., and online at orioles.com/petcalendar.

Calendar sales raised more than $51,000 for BARCS last year. The autograph session will be held at the shelter, 301 Stockholm Street. For more information, visit baltimoreanimalshelter.org.
