Celebrity photographer and former A-List ringleader Mike Ruiz pairs his hottest and most adorable subjects yet in a new “Hunks and Hounds” calendar, which will benefit the Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue and save puppies from high-kill shelters.

As you can probably tell by now, the calendar features beautiful male models covered in body oil and holding dogs in need of good homes. According to Mike, all of these men are single and also in need of good homes (but probably just for the night).

“The message of the calendar is that we should all be kind to animals and protect them from harm,” he told HuffPo this week. “I just hope that people enjoy the images, and that they are reminded daily that adopting and loving an animal is the most humane thing a person can do. I hope we sell a million so that Louie’s Legacy can broaden their services to be able to help more dogs find forever homes.”
