Our initial order period closed but we have extra calendars for sale!  We had some great mini schnauzers compete in our photo contest and the winners grace the cover and each of the 12 months of our 2020 calendar.  Additionally, those that placed 14th to 26th place are highlighted on our Honorable Mention pages.

These continue to be popular gifts and are perfect for ringing in the New Year.  Calendars will be mailed out weekly as orders are submitted.  There are a limited quantity of these extra calendars so get your order in ASAP!

The calendar price is $26 each.  Please note:  Beginning January 1, MSRH must charge 8.25% sales tax on all merchandise sales, which will take the cost to $28.15.

Each month MSRH takes in ~25 dogs in need of forever homes. They come to us as owner surrenders, strays or directly from the various animal shelters. Each rescue is then evaluated and fully vetted. Many are in need of medical support. MSRH treats ~10 dogs each month for heartworms. Treatment is costly, but life saving. We have no shelter. We rely on loving foster homes to provide a nurturing environment until each rescue finds their new family. When we cannot find a foster home, our rescues are boarded. Boarding is costly, so we are always in need of foster families.If you are willing to open your home to one of our rescues, please fill out our foster application.

MSRH maintains ~45+ in rescue each month. These are dogs in foster homes, undergoing treatment in veterinary clinics and boarded at our partner kennels. 

Please consider donating to help MSRH defray medical and monthly operating costs.  Click on this link to donate. Under Payment Purpose, select Veterinary, Boarding or Unrestricted Donation. Thank you in advance for supporting MSRH. All monies donated benefit rescues in need. With your help we are finding forever homes for more rescues.

Are there Rules for Submitting my Photos?

Yes. Here are the pertinent details:

  • Must be Miniature Schnauzers (or mixes) that were rescues. Do not have to be rescues from MSRH.

  • Photos can be from any year – past or current – and can include photos that were previously entered as long as they were not winners.

  • Entries can be of a single dog or a group.

  • Digital photographs ONLY. We prefer the photo to be at least 2 megapixels with minimum size of 1600 X 1200 pixels. Higher resolution is preferred as photos of lesser resolution will not produce calendar-quality printed photographs.

  • Landscape mode is the preferred orientation, but portrait mode will be accepted.

So ... keep your cameras handy to capture special moments of your furbaby playing with toys, having backyard adventures, snuggled up with a warm blankie, dressed for the holidays, cavorting on vacation or something unique to just your mini.

Mini Memorial Page:

A time-honored calendar tradition exclusively reserved for the little ones adopted from MSRH is the Mini Memorial page honoring the lives of our beloved companions who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in late 2022 or 2023, and we thank everyone in advance for understanding why it is reserved for Schnauzers adopted from MSRH. These pictures should be emailed to, with the subject line “2024 Mini Memorial Page.”
