The Kittendales™ project was conceived in early 2007 when the board of directors at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue was brainstorming how to raise money for their cat shelter. Chris Crotty, one of the founding members of the shelter, decided it would be a good idea to put together a calendar of men and cats. The concept was proposed by Susan Davis, a board member, to her sister, Joanne Berman, a photographer. Joanne volunteered her services and together they launched “Kittendales”! In the Spring of 2007, their hunt for a few good men began! The response from the guys was overwhelming. Their willingness to donate their time, and desire to be a part of this project, for the benefit of the kitties, was extraordinary!
