It’s not every day that Kate Middleton is tied to a charitable dog calendar, yet here we are.

Meet Awon Golding, a famous milliner who has designed hats for celebrities like Princess Catherine, Meghan Markle and Lady Gaga. She recently launched the sixth edition of the Haute Dogs calendar, which features rescue pups wearing fascinators.

The brand-new calendar features a different rescue dog for each month, and every animal is wearing a couture hat that was designed by a royal milliner (including Golding, Rachel Trevor-Morgan, Liz Crossman, Grainne Maher and Jessica Broas).

Golding discussed the calendar during an interview with People magazine, where she shared the importance behind the photos. “All the dogs featured have been saved from certain death,” she said.

Golding continued, “This calendar is showing the world that these needy dogs make gorgeous best friends and family pets—so many are still trying to find their forever homes.”

Each year, the Haute Dogs calendar proceeds are donated to a different organization. This time, the calendar is benefiting a non-profit called Harbin SHS Animal Rescue. The official website reads, “With over 4,000 animals now having come through our rescue, and with more followers, volunteers and partnership rescues supporting our efforts, we want each year to see even more animals finding safety, receiving treatment and getting their well deserving and overdue happily ever afters.”

The calendar retails for $17 and can be purchased on the project’s official website. And don’t worry, international shipping is available.
