BOSTON, MA – The Boston Bruins announced today, Tuesday, June 3, that the Pucks & Pups 2014 Bruins calendar raised $30,000 to benefit the MSPCA-Angell. Pucks & Pups was a unique 2014 calendar featuring Bruins players and management with their family pets or new friends waiting for homes at the MSPCA. The $30,000 donation will go directly to the MSPCA’s adoption services program to care for homeless animals awaiting adoption.
