KATHARINE SCHROEDER PHOTOOliver is awake (briefly).Before Oliver, a 2-year-old tabby, was adopted in 2012, he was a stray kitten doing his best to survive in an old barn behind a Southold church.

Now, the blue-eyed beauty is Mr. August 2015 in North Fork Animal Welfare League’s first calendar.

Photographed by volunteer photographer Katharine Schroeder of Cutchogue, the “Adopt Love!” calendar features portraits of cats and dogs that have been adopted from or are still waiting at NFAWL, which operates shelters in Riverhead and Peconic.

NFAWL director Gillian Wood-Pultz said the calendar, which is available for purchase at both shelters and at three local businesses, is selling well. All proceeds benefit the nonprofit group.

“They’re great gifts for Christmas,” she said. “Everybody needs a calendar.”KATHARINE SCHROEDER PHOTOCamo caught in mid-yawn.

Ms. Schroeder, a freelance photographer for Times Review Media Group, said photographing the animals, who were chosen using a lottery system after interested owners sent in pictures of their pets, was “very challenging but lots of fun.”

“Most of the dogs were so friendly they charged right at the camera, trying to lick either me or the lens,” she said. “I used treats and sound effects to get good expressions from them.”

Ms. Schroeder said one dog, a beagle named Bailey, liked having her picture taken so much that she led the photographer to various locations throughout the house and “posed and posed and posed. I never saw anything like it.”

Not surprisingly, getting the cats to cooperate was a bit trickier.

KATHARINE SCHROEDER PHOTOLayney.“Oliver falls asleep when he gets stressed or loses interest in something,” Ms. Schroeder said. “After taking only a handful of shots of him, he nodded off and there was nothing we could do to wake him up. Luckily, one of the shots was perfect.”

“Adopt Love!” is available for $10 at NFAWL’s Riverhead and Peconic shelters and at Groom and Gear in Mattituck, Dog Town in Southold and Harbor Pets in Greenport.

The calendar is also available for $15 (price includes shipping costs) at nfawl.org.

Pieceful Quilting in Riverhead is holding a charity event called “Drop Your Pants” in an effort to collect new underwear for needy local adults and children.

Store employee Colleen Taylor said the event was created because new underwear is in high demand at local domestic violence support groups.

“We understand from talking to people at The Retreat, Siena House and VIBES that underwear is something they don’t get a lot of,” she said. “This is a way to help them and to help children ripped from their homes with only the clothes on their back.”

You can drop off new underwear at the Riverhead store, located at 31 McDermott Ave., during the week from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The charity event runs through Nov. 12. For more information, call (631) 727-5909.

Here’s a few more events happening today:

JENNIFER GUSTAVSON FILE PHOTO | A knitting and crocheting group called the "Yarn Throwers" will meet Monday night at the Mattituck-Laurel Library in Mattituck. The event is open to all local residents.

Are you ready to pick-up those knitting needles again? Then grab your tools and head over to the “Yarn Throwers” weekly meeting Monday night at the Mattituck-Laurel Library.

Nora Libretto, the group’s organizer, said local knitters and crocheters have been making scarfs, sweaters and blankets at the library in Mattituck since the summer.

“It’s an opportunity to sit with other people to knit,” she said. “We would love to have more people join us.”

While participants help each other out with different patterns and techniques, Ms. Libretto stressed the group isn’t for newbies.

“None of us are teachers,” she said, adding beginners should take a formal class at a local yarn store to learn knitting basics.

Those who have a basic understanding of the fundamentals are welcome to the Yarn Throwers meetings, which happen every Monday night at 6 p.m.

For more information, call (631) 298-4134.
